Video: Tony Cascarino Says Neil Lennon Acting Like a Fan Led to Coin Incident

Tony Cascarino says Neil Lennon acting like a fan led to the coin-throwing incident at the end of the Edinburgh derby last night.

The talkSPORT pundit has some knowledge of Scottish football after a very brief, uninspiring spell at Celtic back in the 90s.

He was alongside Sports Breakfast host Alan Brazil this morning and they covered an eventful game in the Scottish capital between Hearts and Hibs.

The game ended 0-0, with little quality shown in the final third on the night.

But the post-match headlines have been dominated by off-field controversy, with Lennon being hit by a coin thrown from the home support the biggest talking point.

Gary Caldwell criticised Lennon for appearing to provoke the supporters seconds before the incident – and now Cascarino has added to that by saying the Northern Irishman contributed to it by acting like a fan.

And that’s something Cascarino believes he shouldn’t do:

Is Cascarino right to say that? Did Lennon bring it on himself? We’re not so sure that’s any excuse for a fan throwing a coin from the stands.
