‘HANG NEIL LENNON’ spotted on wall after heated Hearts vs Hibernian derby

A disturbing piece of graffiti aimed at Hibs manager Neil Lennon has been spotted in the city following last night’s Edinburgh derby. The alarming message was painted in red on a wall in the Russell Road area of the capital.

Hibernian manager Neil Lennon was struck by a coin in the aftermath of Hearts injury-time winner being disallowed.

Tynecastle boss Craig Levein claimed keeper Zdenek Zlamal was hit by a fan.

Hearts owner Ann Budge said:

“It’s a terrific disappointment,”

“The only thing we can do is retrospective and that is using the CCTV to identify the individuals and asking our supporters, and this happened last night which is good, to speak up if they see something of this nature happening.

“The majority of supporters don’t want these things to happen, and we need to encourage them to help us identify the individuals who are doing it.”
