Rangers fans call for Graham Wallace to be suspended, Neil Lennon stands by Leigh Griffiths and Hibs relegation fears rise following derby loss.
Call for Graham Wallace to be suspended
The Union of Fans, an umbrella group of Rangers supporters, has called for Rangers chief executive Graham Wallace to be suspended until Police Scotland conclude their investigation.
Ibrox shareholder Phil Mather has made a complaint in relation to comments made by Wallace at the club’s AGM in December that the club had enough funds in the bank to last until May.
Lennon has high hopes for Stokes and Griffiths
Celtic manager Neil Lennon praised his Celtic side after their 6 - 0 win over Inverness and says there is more to come next season from Anthony Stokes and Leigh Griffiths as their partnership develops. Stokes scored a hat-trick against Thistle while Griffiths has now scored 7 times since his £1m move from Wolves having added to his tally at the weekend. (Scotsman)
• Neil Lennon backed Leigh Griffiths after members of the Green Brigade unveiled a banner apparently directed at the former Hibs striker.
It read: “A man must be a Celt on and off the field otherwise he is of no value to the club.”
Griffiths is currently under investigation for allegedly singing a racist chant aimed at former Hearts striker Rudi Skacel before an Edinburgh derby.
Lennon said: “We’ve all made mistakes but I’m sure this kid will come good.”
Edinburgh derby: Butcher convinced Hibs will stay up
Hibs boss Terry Butcher believes that if his players show the same determination that they showed against Hearts in the Edinburgh derby then they will avoid the play-off spot. His Easter Road side lost 2 - 1 against their city rivals in what was their 4th defeat this season against the Gorgie side. (Scotsman)
