Neil Lennon is hoping Celtic fans do not compound the disappointment of Thursday night's Europa League exit by landing the club in the dock again for incidents before the 1-1 draw with Udinese at the Stadio Friuli.

Celtic had been fined £12,700 by UEFA this week after the Hoops fans were reported for "illicit chanting" in a previous Europa League fixture against Rennes at Parkhead. And in Italy the Hoops fans unfurled a banner which was derogatory in its sentiments towards European football's governing body and a flare was thrown before the game.

The Celtic boss, who described the result as "gut wrenching," said: "I am not aware of that. I didn't see the flare before the game so I will have to wait and see what the outcome is. From where I was it looked like the supporters behaved themselves impeccably and I hope that (possible trouble) is not going to be the case."
