Celtic boss Neil Lennon has been hit with a six match ban following his recent touchline dismissal at Tynecastle.

Lennon faced an additional charge of excessive misconduct during the hearing which also served as his appeal against the original two match ban.

The Hoops gaffer had been incensed at referee Craig Thomson's refusal to award his side a penalty kick and the SFA have now trebled his original ban.

An SFA spokesperson stated after the hearing  "Following a meeting of the Scottish FA's Disciplinary Committee at Hampden Park today, the Celtic manager, Neil Lennon, was found guilty of excessive misconduct.

"Mr Lennon will serve his automatic two-match ban for being dismissed during the Clydesdale Bank Premier League match against Heart of Midlothian at Tynecastle on November 10, 2010, plus an additional four matches for excessive misconduct.

"The sanctions are effective from Tuesday, January 18, and Mr Lennon has seven days to appeal the decision."

Lennon will oversee two games prior to his ban, Wednesday's clash against Hamilton and Saturday's visit to Easter Road to face Hibs.
