Celtic manager Neil Lennon has made a formal apology to the Celtic board after his touchline antics at the Old Firm game last Wednesday.
The Irishman not only exchanged words with Rangers assistant manager Ally McCoist when the final whistle went, but on the way back to the dressing room put his foot through a board advertising upcoming supporters events.
A contrite Lennon commented :
"I apologise most sincerely to the board that I needlessly vandalised on Wednesday night. There is absolutely no excuse for me acting in this way and I promise that I will never again repeat this behaviour.
I also would like to apologise to every blade of grass that I ever besmirched in my days as a player, for I realise now that we are all God's creatures. We all have feelings, even advertising hoardings and football pitches. My conduct as a player was on many occasions disrespectful to the grass I was privileged to play on and I am extremely sorry.
If I have missed anyone or anything out in this gesture of penitence, I am sincerely sorry".
