Manager Neil Lennon has stressed the importance of Celtic fans behaving at the Scottish Premier League game against Inverness tomorrow.

The Parkhead club are facing a UEFA charge of “illicit chanting” following a Europa League game against Rennes and are also under investigation by the SPL for alleged pro-IRA chants in a match against Hibernian.

Ahead of the trip to the Highlands the Celtic boss said: “I love this club and I don’t want to see its name tarnished by, I have to say, a small minority of fans who aren’t doing the club any favours.

“We are already up on a charge and we have to see what the outcome of that is.

“I have to say that 99% of our supporters are second to none, they have a fantastic reputation and they do themselves and the club credit, but it is something that is not doing us any favours, not just on the domestic stage but on the European stage.

“I would appeal to those people to just stop it now and add to the colour and atmosphere that they always do.

“It is important that the club’s reputation is maintained.”
