Milan anger at Dida ban

Published Add your comment

AC Milan have described UEFA´s decision to hand Celtic a small fine but ban goalkeeper Dida for two Champions League matches as a "disproportionate and illogical" response to last week´s Parkhead drama.

Celtic must cough up £12,500 now, with the same sum suspended for two years, after a 27-year-old home supporter ran on to the pitch and gave Dida a cheeky tap following Scott McDonald´s winning goal in the 2-1 victory over Milan on October 3.

"The impact of the sentence is disproportionate and illogical," AC Milan lawyer Leandro Cantamessa said. "I have no issue with Celtic but I am only trying to establish a sense of proportion - one is the event, the other is only the effect of the event."
