Liam O

Neil Lennon case

Celtic manager Neil Lennon received three-points after he admitted driving through a red light on his way to work in Glasgow.

The Hoops boss was fined £110 and given three penalty points on his licence at Glasgow’s Justice of the Peace court.

The 39-year-old, originally from Northern Ireland, was due to stand trial and eight police officers had been cited to give evidence against him.

But Lennon was not present in court and his lawyer Liam O’Donnell instead entered a plea of guilty on his behalf.

The former Celtic player failed to stop at a red light in Millerston Street, Glasgow, while travelling to Celtic Park at around 8.11am on March 16, last year.

Prosecutor Soraya Malik told the court: “The offence was captured by a fixed site camera at around 8.11am. The accused was written to by police officers asking who the driver was and the accused replied saying that it was himself that was driving.”

Mr O’Donnell told JP Eunice Paton that Lennon has no previous convictions and has no live points on his licence.
