Neil Lennon's ban has been suspended until the end of next season

The Celtic manager was given a one-game suspended touchline ban during a Scottish Football Association disciplinary hearing, meaning he will be free to sit in the Hampden dugout for Sunday's clash with Hibernian.

He later wrote on his official Twitter account: "Thrilled to be on the touchline for Sunday..Cup Final is always a special occasion."

The former Celtic captain was found guilty of entering the "playing zone" within 15 minutes of the final whistle of Celtic's 3-1 SPL defeat by Motherwell last month while serving a three-match touchline ban.
