CELTIC boss Neil Lennon was yesterday forced to cancel a trip to Ireland after receiving a series of death threats.

Mr Lennon was due to lead out his team in front of almost 2,000 fans for a benefit game against Finn Harps in Co Donegal and afterwards be a guest of honour at a dinner for former Celtic player, John Kennedy.

But security bosses advised the Armagh native to remain in Scotland in the wake of recent death threats against him.

Yesterday the Celtic team arrived into Donegal's Carrickfin Airport amid tight security and without their manager.

There had been speculation Mr Lennon would join his team at the dinner in the Seaview Hotel, Bunbeg, but this was later ruled out.
