Celtic boss Neil Lennon sent another bullet in post as man is charged over Tynecastle assault

A bullet has been sent to Celtic Park addressed to boss Neil Lennon. The parcel is now being investigated by Strathclyde police after it turned up this morning at the home ground of the Bhoys.

A police spokeswoman after the incident this morning: "There has been a suspicious package found this morning. Police are just at the scene and are carrying out inquiries to try and establish what it is," she said.

The news just hours after Lennon was attacked by a man while he stood on the touchline in Celtic’s 3-0 win over Hearts after he had left his seat in the main stand ran towards the Bhoys boss and attempted to punch him before being restrained by police.

The man in question, 26-year-old John Wilson was arrested by Police at Tynecastle last night. He appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff's Court this morning charged with assault aggravated by religious prejudice and breach of the peace.

Despite this personal attack Lennon was determined not to let it deter from his team’s performance.

He said of his Twitter page: “Don't let what happened to me tonight take the shine off a wonderful team performance... I don't walk alone."

However Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby admitted the attack had effect the Bhoys boss.

He told Sky Sports: "What has happened to Neil is a dark day for Scottish football and I've never seen anything like it. He is shaken but okay."

This is not the first time Lennon has been sent malicious material, as last month he was sent a parcel bomb, which resulted in a 41-year-old man and 43-year-old man being detained by police.
