A Hearts fan has been tracked down after an image of him was posted online wearing a shirt that read ‘Hang Neil Lennon’.
The toxic tee was worn by Andrew at Easter Road during the Edinburgh Derby where Hearts beat Hibs 1-0 on the night.
There was outrage when the image surfaced online, this just another sorry episode for the Hearts support who have been victimising the Hibs boss since he has been at Celtic.
That’s the racist Hibs fan been caught. Let’s see how long Andrew Archibald is smiling for. pic.twitter.com/ZjbfweujlL

This will be water of a ducks back for Neil Lennon but it shouldn’t be!
The very fact this type of behaviour is tolerated but accepted that much this lad feels comfortable posing for pictures and posting it online is pretty shocking.
It’s not banter, it’s not funny and anyone participating in vile behaviour like this should not be allowed into football grounds in Scotland.
Football rivalry is intense, but it should never give birth to the sort of hatred we see here.
