AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani was satisfied with UEFA´s decision to reduce the two-match suspension given to goalkeeper Dida following the Champions League game with Celtic in Glasgow.

The 34-year-old Brazilian was initially banned for two games for his theatrics following a Celtic fan´s encroachment onto the pitch during the 2-1 defeat at Celtic Park, but an appeals body reduced that punishment to a one-match ban, with a further game suspended for a year.

Galliani, who travelled with lawyer Leandro Cantamessa and Dida to UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, said: "I believe it is fair - I was against the two-game suspension but one seems Okay."
