ENGLISH cops are confident Neil Lennon did not break Covid rules after a viral video sparked an official investigation. 

The ex-Celtic boss was filmed, apparently drunk at the Halston Hotel in Carlisle and the video was watched thousands of times earlier this week. 

Cumbria Police investigated claims the former Hoops chief broke Covid rules after the video emerged.

Now they have confirmed they are "satisfied" no breach of the rules had occurred. 

A spokesman for the Northern English force said: "Cumbria Police have made enquiries, including with the hotel, and are satisfied that no coronavirus regulation breaches in English law have taken place."

English beer gardens opened on Monday but cross-border travel remains illegal under strict lockdown rules still in place. 

The video, which shows an apparently drunk Lennon, was widely criticised after doing the rounds on social media.
