Lennon hopes to avoid more trouble

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."
