Celtic manager Neil Lennon and Glasgow Rangers assistant Ally McCoist face being banned from the dug-outs after being charged with misconduct.

The pair have been sanctioned after a touchline row that lead to both men having to be separated following an ill-tempered Scottish Cup fifth-round replay between the two sides.

The SFA confirmed the charges today.

Lennon is likely to receive a four game ban with McCoist being sent to the stands for two matches.

The Celtic manager will get a stronger punishment as he will trigger an automatic touchline ban due to a previous charge of misconduct.

Celtic won the game 1-0 but, Rangers had three players – Steven Whittaker, Madjid Bougherra and El-Hadji Diouf –  all sent off.

Bougherra and Diouf have been reported to the SFA’s disciplinary committee for “misconduct of a significantly serious nature”.
