But after the match Lennon said that Duffy was the aggressor.  He said: “The next thing I’ve got the Morton manager asking for a square go, which is fair enough. I’m not going to back down.”Duffy later issued a statement through Morton’s website admitting his behaviour was inappropriate but strenuously denying Lennon’s allegation.“Firstly, I would like to say that I watched the footage on television last night and, from my point of view, I was embarrassed when I saw my reaction,” he said.“I am not going to get involved in a public debate with the Hibs manager, but what I would state is that I categorically, 100 per cent did not ask for a ‘square go’ or use anything even remotely like that term. “Yes, I acted immaturely – but I’m not 12 years old.”last_img
