FOLLOWING on from the news that Neil Lennon will not face any action from Police Scotland following his ‘gesture’ at Ibrox on Saturday afternoon, news has now broken that a man has been arrested and over alleged offensive and threatening comments made against the Hibs boss.

Hundreds of Rangers supporters reported Lennon to the Police and the supporters group 1972, which is also the second largest shareholder in the club, issued a widely ridiculed statement on Sunday evening urging Police Scotland to take action against the former Celtic manager.

However the Police dismissed the complaints today through the following statement.

“Following complaints received, we have reviewed the events at the match and, after discussion with the procurator fiscal, established that no criminality took place. Therefore no further action will be taken.”

A number of sinister death threats and other threats of violence emerged online after the match and it was revealed yesterday that Police Scotland had brought in a specialist unit to investigate these, several of which appeared on Rangers fans pages.

Now a Police Scotland spokeswoman has revealed that an arrest has been made.

“Following complaints received, we have reviewed the events at the match and, after discussion with the procurator fiscal, established that no criminality took place. Therefore no further action will be taken.”

It is understood that Officers have arrested a 54-year-old man over the alleged offensive online comments and he is due to appear at Paisley Sheriff Court on tomorrow.
