Hoops braced for further punishment

Published Add your comment

Celtic should find out on Monday whether they face UEFA action for two incidents involving Hoops fans before Thursday night's Europa League game against Udinese in Italy.

At the Stadio Friuli, before the 1-1 draw which saw Neil Lennon's side exit the tournament, a two-part banner insulting UEFA was unfurled by the travelling fans and there were several flares set alight, one of which was hurled onto the pitch-side running track.

The Parkhead club were last week fined £12,700 by UEFA after their supporters were reported for "illicit chanting" in a previous Europa League fixture against Rennes in Glasgow and expect to be brought to book again.
