Lennon was send sprawling to the ground after being struck by a coin in last night’s Edinburgh Derby at Tynecastle but his former Celtic team-mate Caldwell had little sympathy after the full-time whistle.
As we told you earlier today, the ex-Scotland international was appearing on BBC Sportsound to cover the evening’s games as a pundit, and after the drama had blown over, he said: “I think he brings a lot of it on himself.
“Whoever throws something from a stand should be ejected immediately but Neil Lennon was goading the fans as that goal got disallowed.
“As managers, coaches, players, we have to have a level of professionalism to not incite that and I think at times he does.”
Those comments were relayed to McInnes at his media conference this afternoon, and the Dons coach gave them short shrift, describing the remarks as ‘crass’:

What do you think of the situation surrounding Lennon’s conduct?
Was Caldwell right to make his initial comments? Or is McInnes correct in criticising the suggestion put forward?
