Celtic manager Neil Lennon was again at the centre of an abuse investigation by Police after being sent a threatening tweet.

Police were alerted after Lennon was sent a tweet that read: “I’ve got a bullet with your name on it.” The tweet was sent from the Twitter account of 17-year-old Ryan Cameron of East Lothian.

Police Scotland said that inquiries were ongoing.

In 2012, Trevor Muirhead, 44, of Kilwinning, and Neil McKenzie, 43, were each given five-year jail sentences after being found guilty of conspiring to assault Mr Lennon, after they sent package bombs to the Celtic manager’s home.

And last year David Craig, of Paisley, was jailed for 14 months for posting a mocked-up photograph of Lennon covered in bullet wounds on the internet.
