Video: Lennon Pleads with Celtic Fans to Stop Bringing Pyrotechnics to Games

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has pleaded with his club’s supporters to stop bringing pyrotechnics to matches, in the wake of Wednesday night’s win over St Mirren.

The Hoops cruised to a 2-0 victory in Paisley thanks to goals either side of half-time from Timo Weah and Ryan Christie, and the victory maintains a massive 13-point lead over Rangers at the top of the Premiership table.

However, the game was mired in controversy in the closing stages after a firecracker was thrown onto the pitch from the Celtic end, and when it exploded it seemed to cause Saints keeper Václav Hladký a fair bit of pain in his ear.

Fortunately, the Czech shot-stopper ended up uninjured, but Lennon has asked for fans to stop their behaviour before someone is seriously hurt:

Celtic now face Livingston at home on Saturday, before taking on Aberdeen in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup.

What do you think of Lennon’s comments?
