Celtic to face UEFA disciplinary


Celtic will next month face disciplinary action from UEFA over "illicit chanting" in the Europa League win over Rennes at Parkhead, European football's governing body have confirmed.

A spokesperson for UEFA confirmed to Press Association Sport that Celtic will on December 8 be called before the organisation's control and disciplinary body to face a charge of an incident of an unsporting nature, namely illicit chanting, during the 3-1 defeat of the French side on November 3.

Celtic had already confirmed they were "looking into the claims", which are believed to centre on songs about the IRA.
