Lennon wants Lunny to spell out guidelines

Neil Lennon has called on the Scottish Football Association’s compliance officer, Vincent Lunny, to “spell out the guidelines” for managers.

The Celtic boss was speaking after his Kilmarnock counterpart Kenny Shiels and St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas found themselves in hot water with the SFA this week over comments made about officials.

Lennon, ahead of today’s William Hill Scottish Cup fourth-round tie at home to Second Division side Arbroath, called for some instruction from Lunny in respect of post-match interviews.

“The last place you want to be is in the stand, as I know from my own experience,” he said. “Steve, certainly, will learn from this. But I don’t know where, as managers, we draw the line.

“I think Vincent Lunny should come and speak to managers because we are the ones who are brought up in front of him and the SFA disciplinary panel. Vincent needs to spell out the guidelines, what we can and can’t say regarding referees in post-match interviews.”
