    Neil Lennon: Hibs boss brands Club 1872 statement 'laughable'

    Hibernian manager Neil Lennon has described a statement by a Rangers' fans group criticising his actions as "laughable and insignificant".

    Club 1872, the second largest shareholder in Rangers, claimed Lennon made "various inflammatory gestures" to fans during Hibs' 3-2 win at Ibrox.

    Police Scotland said no action would be taken against the Hibs manager.

    Lennon said he had not heard of the fans' group and thought the statement had been "written by a 15-year-old".

    Police ruled out action after receiving complaints from Rangers fans about the former Celtic player and manager's celebrations at Ibrox on Saturday.

    The Easter Road boss cupped his ears and made a gesture as he celebrated Simon Murray's equaliser.

    No really fussy, they were without him when it mattered and Stokes might have been sent off too. Win Win for us I think.

    Even though he did throw himself about, most aggressive in every scuffle up til the red.

    Gonna have to rescind 3 reds this weekend if his is chopped off.
    The hearts boy shouldn't have been off

    Not that I'm bothered, it was a dead cert to happen after the fanfare since.

    Lennon gets tore into Pedro too amongst other things in a very lengthy, though interesting, interview with the Daily Mail. What a guy...



    "Even the most insulting abuse from fans can be shrugged aside. The 'hysterical nonsense' of trumped-up police investigations, meanwhile, are little more than an irritant to Neil Lennon.
    As an Old Firm warrior of old, he understands the perverse rules of engagement.
    But the Hibs boss genuinely never thought he would see a fellow manager deliver the kind of disrespectful discourtesy he claims to have encountered at Ibrox last Saturday afternoon.

    If Lennon's description of events is even halfway accurate, Pedro Caixinha appears to have turned a post-match tradition — the act of sitting down together regardless of result, rows or running battles — into an awkward, sullen, ill-mannered farce.
    In a wide-ranging conversation on Thursday, Lennon tackled the subjects of the Ibrox atmosphere, red-card controversies and — just in case it had been overshadowed — the performance of his team in last weekend's thrilling 3-2 away win over Rangers. When it came to the subject of Caixinha's vocal complaints about his opposite number's behaviour, however, the former Celtic player and manager expressed confusion. And dropped in an interesting revelation.
    'I paid him due respect before the game,' said Lennon, who had been pointed in his praise of the Portuguese coach ahead of the game.

    'I said how he came across as a gentleman, I paid Ibrox the compliment of saying it was a great amphitheatre. I even complimented his team's performance after the game.
    'So, other than kiss his feet, how much more respect does he want me to give him?'
    Having an opposing manager call out him or his team via the media for crossing a line doesn't bother Lennon; he knows that every head coach has his own reasons for saying what he does.
    Warming to his theme of respect, he revealed that Caixinha's public outburst had merely been a precursor to a private snub, the Hibs boss saying: 'That respect should have been afforded to me when we went into his office afterwards. But it clearly wasn't. You know, respect is a two-way thing.
    'I went into the office after the game. There was no conversation with myself or my backroom team.

    'That was odd, very odd. I've never experienced that before.
    'Only Jonatan Johansson (Rangers assistant coach) and the young fitness coach, who was here before, made conversation. I spoke to Jonatan and the fitness coach spoke to Grant Murray.
    'We had no conversation or dialogue with the manager or his backroom team.
    'They spoke in Portuguese. Which I understand a little bit of…'
    Lennon left hanging the suggestion that he might not have liked what little of the 'private' conversation he'd heard.
    Regardless of whether his linguistic skills were up to providing a perfect translation, he clearly felt slighted.
    In the Big Book of Fitba', one of the rules written in bold is that thou shalt always respect thy opposite number. Even if he has annoyed the hell out of you for the previous 90 minutes.
    Caixinha previously accused Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes of a grave offence in keeping him waiting after a game at Pittodrie last season. The Rangers manager responded by telling McInnes that he was not welcome in the manager's office at Ibrox.
    Yet, even after the infamous Old Firm 'Shame Game' of 2011, Lennon and Ally McCoist — who had to be pulled apart on the touchline — went through the ritual of shaking hands and sharing a drink less than an hour after the final whistle.

    To the guys in the business, this is not just about etiquette or protocol. It is a professional courtesy, an acknowledgement that they are bound together by their choice of profession.
    'You don't want to do it sometimes, sit and have a chat, but you appear out of respect to your counterpart,' said Lennon.
    'Whether we've had a ding-dong, whether the game has been great, if there have been controversial decisions or we've had a rammy during the game, whether you are in a foul mood afterwards, you do it.
    'I've been there myself, I know managers on the other side have felt the same as well.
    'And it can be awkward at times. But there is that unwritten rule.
    'You go in and talk about the game, or talk about life in general — or you don't talk about the game! You talk about things unrelated to football, if you have to.'
    Reporting that he had 'half a glass of beer' before the odd encounter with the Rangers coaching staff was brought to an end, Lennon testified that the professional courtesies are maintained even when Celtic go to Ibrox or Rangers visit Celtic Park.
    'Especially Old Firm games,' he said, making his point. 'There is an unwritten respect between managers, no matter what went on before.
    'Sometimes you don't want to do it but you bite your lip and take it.

    'The majority of the time, you do your press duties afterwards and you are still emotional — and you have to just suck it up when you get beat. Sometimes you don't talk about the game at all.
    'There is that respect. If Pedro wants that, then he has to give some back.'
    Aware that he will receive fresh criticism even for raising the issue, Lennon said he could only imagine the reaction if he had acted in a similar way towards a visiting manager at Easter Road.
    'You would get to hear about it. But I wouldn't do that,' added the Northern Irishman.
    On Caixinha's complaints about a 'union' that allows British managers to get away with more on the touchline than an incomer like himself, Lennon said: 'You have to explain to me what he meant by it. Because, during the game, I think I remonstrated once with the fourth official about a decision. Once.
    'Whereas there were other things going on in their technical area. Bottles being kicked, blah-blah-blah, shouting and screaming at the fourth official.
    'So I've nothing to reproach myself for in how I handled the situation last Saturday. I don't know where he's coming from, within the confines of the game.'
    Reacting to complaints that Anthony Stokes might have joined Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack in being red-carded by referee John Beaton, Lennon confessed: 'There's no question that Anthony trod the line. There is no question about that — maybe he got away with one.

    'But there were other things going on in the game that maybe warranted red cards, as well. We haven't touched on that.
    'I could name a couple of players in the opposition who should have walked.
    'So to blame me or the referee for the defeat is their prerogative. But, from my point of view, I thought we handled the game very well — and we should have won by more.'
    Lennon is likely to face an SFA charge for one aspect of his touchline celebrations at Ibrox. It was a rude gesture which invited punishment, and was not 'punching the air' as he described it.
    As for an official police investigation instigated at the behest of Rangers supporters, reported and then dropped almost immediately, Lennon said: 'It's hysterical nonsense, completely disproportionate.
    'How that can make front-page news of a tabloid, I do not know.
    'By all accounts, there were people complaining about me celebrating the goal. And that was reported.
    'But there was a lot of other complaints to the police about other things going on in the stadium — and they weren't reported in the papers.
    'Look, I have to put up with a lot when I go to this ground. And I don't complain about it. I could cite a lot of people for what they say or sing — or throw.
    'But there is an acceptance that, within the 90 minutes, it's part of the culture of Glasgow.


    'So, when I turn round and cup my ears, to suggest that's a criminal offence — it's not. Or I punch the air. That's not.
    'I think there has been a massive deflection from us winning the game with a team that cost a fraction of the opposition.
    'I'm still very, very pleased. I'm still very excited about what we've done so far.'
    Hibs are at home to Hamilton on Saturday. Without taking anything for granted in the wacky world of Scottish football, it should be a more sedate affair.
    Even if Lennon and Martin Canning spend 90 minutes at each other's throats, the home manager will insist on the visiting gaffer joining him for a drink and a debrief.
    It might be awkward, tense, even crammed with banal conversation about the weather or the price of back-to-school shoes.
    But it will happen. Lennon wouldn't have it any other way.

    So it's 1640 on Friday and nothing from the SFA citing Lennon, so does that mean he's in the clear? Surely they can't wait till next week?
