Celtic decide against fine appeal

Published Add your comment

Celtic will not appeal against the fine imposed by UEFA for "illicit chanting" at last month's Europa League tie against Rennes at Celtic Park.

UEFA's control and disciplinary panel on Monday imposed a fine of 15,000 euros (£12,700) for chanting at the 3-1 win over Rennes on November 3.

The match delegate was informed of pro-IRA chanting by the Strathclyde police match commander, and Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell told his club's official website, "The heavy fine imposed by UEFA is an indication of the seriousness with which it treats such matters. We would reiterate our own position that, however small a minority is involved, such chanting is not welcome at Celtic Football Club."
