Scottish Club Hibernian Suspend Manager Neil Lennon After Altercation With Chief Executive



Hibernian look set to be without manager Neil Lennon for Sunday’s Ladbrokes Premiership clash with St Mirren.

Neil Lennon was suspended by Hibernian on Friday after an exchange with chief executive Leeann Dempster, following a meeting with the players.

After finishing fourth on their return to the top flight last season, Hibs sit in eighth place in the table and are without a league win in five games following a 1-0 defeat to Motherwell at Fir Park.

Head of academy coaching Eddie May and assistant coach Grant Murray will be in the dugout against St Mirren on Sunday.

“The full focus of the club is on the trip to Paisley,” said a Hibs statement.

“Hibernian FC can confirm that Eddie May, head of academy coaching, and Grant Murray, assistant coach, will take charge of the first team for Sunday’s Ladbrokes Premiership game against St Mirren.

“Eddie and Grant, who both have experience of first team management, have worked closely with the first team as part of the matchday coaching staff.”

Lennon, the 47-year-old former Celtic player and manager, was appointed as head coach at Easter Road in June 2016 on a four-year deal.

He led Hibs to the Championship title and with it promotion back to the Premiership.
