Watch: Hibs manager Neil Lennon recreate ‘aeroplane dance’ with pint in hand in pub full of fans

It’s hard to imagine there is anyone in Scottish football who loves a goal against Rangers any more than Hibernian manager Neil Lennon.

The former Celtic player has had a bit of a ‘hate-hate’ relationship with fans of the Ibrox club for the best part of 20 years now.

Thankfully tensions aren’t running so high as they were when at Celtic when he received numerous death threats, sickening sectarian abuse, attacks on the street (and on the touchline) and a live nail bomb sent to his house in an attempt murder bid by a deranged Rangers fan.

So its fair to say there is no love to be lost between Lennon and Rangers even now that he is at Hibernian.

So it was no surprise to see him celebrate wildly after a last minute equaliser in Sunday’s 5-5 draw at Easter Road.

But some fans might have been surprised to see the former Leicester and Northern Ireland midfielder rock up into a pub in Edinburgh to recreate the now famous scene.

After another 90 minutes of non-stop abuse who can blame him for giving a little back at the end ?

Although some Celtic fans might have been wondering where that pace was 15 years ago.
