Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon had a meltdown as his Hibernian side conceded from a penalty against Kilmarnock on Saturday afternoon – and Rangers fans were quick to pile on the Northern Irishman for his pitchside antics.

Lennon was sent off by referee Kevin Clancy after remonstrating with the fourth official before launching into a foul-mouthed rant at the referee and sarcastically applauding him.

Clancy gave what looked to be a pretty soft spot-kick when Ryan Porteous handled the ball in the box allowing Kris Boyd to level the scoreline when he netted the rebound from his saved penalty.

Gers fans had no sympathy for the Celtic legend as he was sent to the stand yet again with one calling him a “repugnant little boy.”

Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

Hibs raced into a 2-0 lead over Steve Clarke’s Kilmarnock before the hosts fought back and levelled the score to maintain their unbeaten home run.

Lennon could face a lengthy ban from the Scottish FA after his reaction towards Clancy.

The Celtic legend has a lengthy rap sheet with the Scottish FA – even just as a manager – and will certainly find himself hauled before a disciplinary committee at Hampden in the next few weeks.

Lennon has only just finished a two-match ban which was suspended until the end of 2017 if he stayed out of trouble after a touchline bust-up with Morton boss Jim Duffy.
