Neil Lennon has been slapped with a one-game touchline ban by UEFA after Hibernian's defeat to Bronby in the Europa League qualifiers.

Lennon remonstrated with officials after a disallowed Jason Cummings goal during only his first game in charge of the Scottish side.

"We had a perfectly legitimate goal disallowed. It was a beautiful goal," he told BBC after the game.

"The linesman's not up with play so he can't make the decision... We've seen it again about five times from different angles and Jason has actually checked his run to make sure he is onside."

The 45-year-old will be banned for the Europa League second qualifying round second leg in Denmark next Thursday.

The winner of the tie will face Hertha Berlin in the next round.
