IN THE AGE of smartphones doubling as dictaphones, we’re surprised this doesn’t happen a little bit more often.

Neil Lennon was in high spirits after watching his Celtic side thump Hearts 4-1 on Saturday but his post-match press conference was interrupted twice by a ringing phone on the desk in front of him.

The phone belonged to Michael Grant of Herald Scotland, according to Scottish Sun reporter Derek McGregor, and Lennon had no problem answering the phone to have a chat with Mrs Grant.

“Sharon, you’ve got to stop interrupting my press conference please,” he laughed after answering the second time before telling Grant “You’re not going out tonight Michael.”
