A VIDEO shows the moment a police officer intervenes in a furious public row between Hibs boss Neil Lennon and a passer-by.
The clip, which surfaced on social media in the early hours of this morning (Mon), shows Lennon repeatedly jabbing his finger and shouting: “I’ll have you.”
The Hibs manager appears to be involved a late-night altercation on Byres Road, Glasgow.
The reason for the dispute is unclear but it has been claimed online that Lennon fell out with a supporter of a rival team.
At the start of the footage, the ex-Celtic midfielder is seen pointing in the face of a police officer, with several men facing him
Lennon’s words are initially inaudible, but the officer appears to be trying to get men on both sides of the argument to calm down.
As the policeman moves to talk to the other men involved in the argument, Lennon can be heard to say “I’ll have you”.
As he moves to get into a taxi he adds “You’re too big for me” directed at another gentleman.
The clip then cuts out with the people recording the footage laughing uncontrollably at what they have just seen.
The footage has been viewed several thousand times since being uploaded on to social media early this morning, and has received a mixed reaction from fans.
Many jumped to the defence of Lennon.
John Miller said: “The abuse Lennon has had to put up with is nothing short of a disgrace – He can’t even go out for a quite evening without some dickhead harassing him. Leave him alone.”
Stephen Williamson added: “Wee Lennon getting tortured again by the knuckledragging scum of Scotland.”
David Heggie wrote: “Unreal how he gets treated and the man does loads for charity.”
But others were critical of Lennon.
Christopher Kennedy said: “Lennon throwing out abuse but all the f**s on here claiming he’s getting bigoted abuse when the only evidence here is Lennon being a f****.”
Ian Laurie added: “C*** as usual.”
Earlier this season, Lennon was involved in a scuffle with Morton boss Jim Duffy as the bosses’ players clashed during their 0-0 draw at Easter Road.
