lennon neil 14The big sports story in Scotland today is that Hibernian have suspended head coach Neil Lennon, pictured left,  and it is unlikely he will take charge of the Scottish Premiership team again, the BBC has learned.

It follows an exchange between the Northern Irishman and several employees of the Easter Road club on Friday.

The 47-year-old is not expected to be in charge for Sunday’s league match against St Mirren.

It is also unclear whether Lennon’s assistant Garry Parker will be in the dugout in Paisley.

Hibs, who won promotion under Lennon in 2017, are eighth in the table and have lost two and drawn three of their past five league matches.  The Easter Road side will take on Raith Rovers in next month’s Scottish Cup last-16 tie.
