Celtic have been fined £25,000 by UEFA and AC Milan´s Dida has been banned for two matches after the incident which saw a pitch-invading supporter approach the Brazilian goalkeeper in last week´s Champions League match at Parkhead.

Dida´s theatrical reaction to being tapped by the Celtic supporter after Scott McDonald scored the late winning goal has cost him severely.

However Celtic may not choose to complain about their own punishment, with half of their fine suspended for two years.
