Neil Lennon believes the goalposts have been moved on Celtic again after Albian Ajeti's two-match ban offer for simulation.

The Hoops striker went down under a challenge from Kilmarnock goalkeeper Colin Doyle where he won a penalty but was retrospectively punished by the SFA for 'diving'.

Manager Lennon was furious with the panel decision and has today revealed his disappointment at the circumstances.

"It looks like the goalposts have been moved again on Celtic so we are not happy about it and we will defend it as vigorously as we possibly can," Lennon told BBC Sportsound before kick-off this afternoon against Motherwell.

"This isn't to make a point it's to protect the player as hs is also aggrieved."

Celtic confirmed they would challenge the ban handed out to Ajeti who started this afternoon at Parkhead.

It's not the first time Lennon has been left upset at the 'goalposts being moved'. He was furious following criticism of the club's Dubai trip and claimed his side were being held to a higher standard than other sides over their Covid-19 protocols.
