SPL issue Neil Lennon with a three-game touchline ban following a misconduct charge, and he could now miss Celtic's title victory.

The Scottish Premier League have hit Celtic manager Neil Lennon with a three-match touchline ban after finding him guilty of misconduct.

The 41-year-old announced last week that he would fight against a misconduct charge placed on him for 'behaving unacceptably' during a 1-1 draw with St Mirren.

The Scottish governing body have confirmed that Lennon will have to stay away from the touchline for Celtic's next three matches as punishment.

Lennon will be absent for the team's potential title-winning match against Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Sunday.
