Neil Lennon Blames Media For ‘Trumped Up’ Scott Brown SFA Charge

Neil Lennon Blames Media For ‘Trumped Up’ Scott Brown SFA Charge

Neil Lennon has blamed the media for the ‘trumped up’ charge the SFA gave to Scott Brown this week.

The Compliance Officer cited the Celtic captain yesterday after being accused of “not acting in the best interest of Scottish football”.

He’s facing a one-game ban as a result of that, but the Hoops have confirmed they’ll fight it ‘vigorously’.

And now Lennon has reiterated that before blaming the media for what he believes is a ‘trumped up’ charge:

Brown will face Hampden decision makers on Thursday, May 2nd to discuss the charge.

Lennon wasn’t holding back in his press conference ahead of Celtic’s clash with Livingston tomorrow.

He also had some strong words for Steven Gerrard, saying the only rational thing the Rangers manager has said since Sunday’s game was that they played the best in the country.

That should lead to a strong reply from Gerrard when he next speaks to the media, with Rangers in action against Motherwell tomorrow.
