Celtic boss Neil Lennon has been given a three-match touchline ban after being found guilty of swearing and misconduct during Celtic's 1-1 draw with St Mirren on March 31.
The ban, carried over from last season, came into action after a disciplinary tribunal found Lennon had breached Disciplinary Rule 203 in his use of offensive language towards St Mirren captain Jim Goodwin.
Lennon will be in the stands for FC Celtic's matches against Motherwell, Ross County and St Johnstone.
Neil Lennon is a former pro footballer from Northern Ireland. He is the manager and former captain of Celtic, and is currently the longest continuous serving manager in the Scottish Premier League.
Lennon will be on the pitch for his weekend's clash with Inverness as Lennon has five days to appeal the ban.

'We'll hit the showers, and they're all in boxers, and I'll have my Dolce & Gabbana underwear,' he joked.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon received a surprise phone call from another Celtic fan, Elton John, after the o-field battle. John had seen Rod Stewart crying on television and decided to call Lennon with congratulations.
''I had a lot of texts from people in the game which was fantastic but I got a call yesterday from left field from Sir Elton John, believe it or not, congratulating me,'' Lennon said.
''I thought my missus was winding me up but it just shows you the interest it has generated among a lot of people.''
John used to own the Watford Football Club, a British team, and serves as its Honorary Lifetime President.
''I don't think he was as emotional as Rod but he did tell me when he was chairman of Watford and they got to the 1984 FA Cup final he was so emotional that he did cry before the game,'' Lennon said.
''He was very knowledgeable about the game and knew a lot about myself and it was great that he took time out to call me, as he is going to Australia on tour.''
