If Celtic clinches the Scottish Premier League title on Sunday, manager Neil Lennon won't be on the touchline to celebrate it.

Lennon was found guilty of misconduct by the Scottish Football Association on Thursday for using offensive language toward an opposition player during a league match against St. Mirren on March 31.

The sanction triggered a three-match suspended touchline ban that had been hanging over Lennon since May 3 last year.

Celtic holds a 15-point lead in the standings with five games remaining, so needs just a point from its home match against Inverness this weekend to retain the title.
