Hibs have fallen silent over the apparent suspension of Neil Lennon.

Around 10pm last night BBC Scotland and Sky Sports broke the news with every other media outlet quickly onto the story.

Suddenly details began to emerge of a troubled day at the club’s training ground, of a lively exchange with players following Wednesday’s defeat at Motherwell and most explosively a showdown with chief executive Leeann Dempster.

Whatever happened seems to have left Hibs paralysed. Dempster and Rod Petrie know the territory and appear to be in hiding afraid to confront the truth and tackle the rumours.

Nothing has appeared on the club website, twitter has fallen silent.

Some reports are claiming that assistant manager Garry Parker has also been suspended, other reports claim that the backroom staff are backing Lennon which leaves a massive problem for tomorrow’s visit to St Mirren.

Perhaps Petrie can slip into a tracksuit and take charge of things tomorrow in Paisley, we’ll just have to wait for Kris Boyd to give us the inside track on what’s going on.
