Parkhead boss targeted with ‘viable’ bomb.
“Viable” parcel bombs have been sent to Celtic manager Neil Lennon and two high-profile fans of the Glasgow club, sources have told the BBC.
Sources said the liquid-based devices, sent in the past month, appear to have been intended to “kill or maim”.
Mr Lennon’s lawyer, Paul McBride QC, and former deputy presiding officer of the Scottish Parliament, Trish Godman, were the other two people targeted.
The devices were found at various locations in the west of Scotland. (BBC Sport)
The devices though potentially deadly are thought to have been fairly rudimentary and apparently not the work of someone with paramilitary training. Security around the Celtic boss is likely to be stepped up and this of course all plays against the back drop of UEFA investigations into the singing of sectarian songs which has become something of a thorny issue of late.
