Neil Lennon hasn't held back when celebrating this season.

Hibernian manager Neil Lennon has been given a three-match ban for his conduct at the end of his side's 5-5 draw with Rangers in May.

He was found guilty of misconduct for his celebrations as Hibs scored a late equaliser.

That landed him a one-match suspension but also triggered a suspended two-game ban from earlier last season.

It means he will be in the stand for Hibernian's first three domestic matches next season.

The Edinburgh side begin their season with a Europa League first qualifying round tie against NSI Runavik on 12 and 19 July.

Lennon will also be banned from the dugout for that since he incurred a four-match European suspension for remonstrating with the referee in his first match in charge at Easter Road two years ago.

If victorious against the Faroe Islands outfit, they will face Greek side Asteras Tripolis in another two-legged tie, on 26 July and 2 August.

Hibs kick off their Premiership campaign with matches against Motherwell, St Johnstone and Aberdeen.
