Celtic gaffer Neil Lennon

Two men charged in connection with suspected parcel bombs that were sent to Celtic manager Neil Lennon have appeared in court in Scotland this week.

Neil McKenzie, 41 and Trevor Muirhead, 43, both from Ayrshire, made no plea or declaration when they appeared in court on Friday. Both men were then remanded in custody.

The two were arrested Thursday following a massive police investigation after suspect packages were sent to Lennon and one each to lawyer Paul McBride Queens Counsel and former Member of the Scottish Parliament Trish Godman. All of the packages were found during March and last month.

The Scottish Crown Office said that both Muirhead and McKenzie faced three charges of sending a package containing explosive substances under the Explosive Substances Act 1883.

They also each face two charges of dispatching a hoax bomb. The case was continued for further examination.
