Hibernian and Hearts played out a 0-0 draw in tonight's Scottish Premiership clash. However, not to let the Edinburgh derby pass by without some controversy, Hibs' manager Neil Lennon found himself on the ground in front of his dugout after being struck from an item thrown from the crowd.
Sitting top of the Scottish Premiership ahead of this evening's clash, Hearts knew that a win at Tynecastle could give them a comfortable seven-point lead over second-placed Celtic.
In the dying moments of tonight's game, it had appeared that they were going to get just that.
Some fairly farcical defending of a looping header had left the Hibernian box looking very vulnerably indeed. When the ball eventually found its way into the goal, few could have been that surprised.
However, as the Hearts players celebrated what looked to have been a very important win, attention was quickly drawn to the linesman with his flag aloft - offside.
Quick to quieten the Hearts fans behind him, the former Celtic player and manager Neil Lennon encouraged them to relax.
Perhaps not the wisest course of action, some member of the fans in question was clearly disgruntled by Lennon's behaviour, and in a shocking scene, the Hibernian manager found himself on the ground in front of his dugout.

Speaking afterward, he had seemed to make a good recovery.
"Ultimately it comes down to the individual."
"It was a pound coin, so he must have a few quid on him!"
