Celtic boss Neil Lennon was spat at, had coins thrown at him by Aberdeen fans at Tynecastle [Picture]

Celtic boss Neil Lennon was the victim of nasty abuse at Tynecastle on Saturday as he watched Aberdeen beat St Johnstone 4-0 in the League Cup semi-final.

The Celtic gaffer was sat in the main stand at Tynecastle, surrounded by Aberdeen fans, as his looked to get information ahead of next Saturday’s Scottish Cup tie between Celtic and the Dons.

Lennon only managed to watch 70 minutes of the game.

According to Lennon’s agent Martin Reilly, the Celtic manager was subjected to abuse by the Aberdeen fans as he was spat at and was the target for coin throwing from spectators.

I’m absolutely raging about the treatment of Neil, about the stewarding and the fans’ behaviour. It’s scandalous that Neil is treated like this.
