Our manager and marksman today found themselves in front of the SFA for seemingly loose lips.
Hooper kopped £2000 suspended fine for mumbling: “The referee wants to give a decision against us so he can say something after the game. I think all the big teams get it.” The punishment seems a bit harsh for telling the truth.
Lennon was “given a severe censure and warned about his future conduct” for his comments after Wullie Gollum gave a penalty when he had his back to the incident.
The strange thing is that Lennon will get brought before the SFA again in two months time for his comments after the Dougiegate game, which was before Gollumgate and also for his comments at Tynecastle, which was after Gollumgate.
Only in Scotland can a manager be charged then warned about his future behaviour when his first offence hasn’t been considered yet.
