Neil Lennon has been given a one-match suspension by the Scottish FA for his "aeroplane" celebration during Hibernian's 5-5 draw against Rangers on the final day of last season.
Lennon was handed his fine after a disciplinary hearing at Hampden Park on Thursday.
The Hibernian boss was sent to the stands after the incident where he ran onto the pitch celebrating after his team had equalised.
After the game, he claimed he had been subjected to significant abuse of a sectarian nature during the match and when asked if the sending off was worth it, he said: "absolutely I'd do it again!".
The sanction has triggered a suspended two-match ban hanging over Lennon from March after he was sent to the stands once again during a game at Kilmarnock in February.
He sarcastically applauded the referee Kevin Clancy.
Lennon's ban takes effect immediately meaning he is set to miss the first three matches of the Scottish Premiership season which include Motherwell and Aberdeen at home as well as St Johnstone away.
He has the right to appeal the suspension but must do so within five working days.
