After an Edinburgh jury found Neil Lennon’s attacker at Tynecastle last season not guilty of assault no one will be surprised that Lord Turnbull has today advised the jury there was insufficient evidence to prove two accused intended to murder Neil Lennon, Paul McBride and former MSP Trish Godman.
The two will now face the reduced charge of plotting to assault their victims. With a bomb. Perhaps a world first.
The Celtic manager gave evidence at the trial earlier this month before carrying the coffin of his friend and fellow target Paul McBride, who died suddenly of natural causes. The SFA yesterday wrote to Neil Lennon for the third time in 10 days concerning refereeing comments he made.
My advice to Mr Ogilvie and Mr Regan at the SFA is that they fill their boots while they can. Neil will be free of these stresses soon and no longer be such a vulnerable target for the Association to gorge on like a bitter pack of rabid dogs.
