Lennon lands in hot water after touchline brawl

By Adam McKendry

Hibernian boss Neil Lennon declared Morton striker Kudus Oyenuga's actions as "embarrassing" and an act of "cowardice" after being sent off in an ugly injury time bust-up last night.

The former Northern Ireland midfielder had to be restrained as he and Morton counterpart Jim Duffy (right) came close to blows after players from both teams clashed following a nasty challenge from Oyenuga on Hibs man Jordon Foster.

Oyenuga, Hibs captain Darren McGregor, Lennon and Duffy were all dismissed, leaving the Lurgan native irate.

"It's disgraceful, (Oyenuga's) behaviour, it's embarrassing," he raged.

"Not only has he tried to break my player's leg, he's got my captain sent off as well in an act of cowardice," Lennon claimed.
