NEIL LENNON has been charged by the SFA with misconduct and criticising officials during Hibs’ 2-2 draw with Kilmarnock at Rugby Park at the weekend.

The Easter Road gaffer was sent to the stands by referee Kevin Clancy shortly after Kris Boyd scored from a penalty-kick rebound to give his team a point.

Lennon protested at the handball decision given against his defender Ryan Porteous in the 61st minute.

The former Celtic boss raged at the match official and sarcastically applauded Clancy’s decision to award the spot-kick, describing it as “Mickey Mouse stuff”.

The Edinburgh outfit had taken a two-goal first-half lead with goals from Florian Kamberi and Porteous.

Jordan Jones pulled a goal back before the flare-up that led to Killie equalising and Lennon being ordered from the dug-out.

An initial hearing into the charges will be held by the SFA on March 15.
