Celtic are likely to escape with a fine today when UEFA rule on the one-man pitch invasion that marred their Champions League victory over AC Milan.

Scotland´s champions face charges of "lack of organisation and improper conduct of supporters" after a fan ran on to the Parkhead playing surface and taunted Milan goalkeeper Dida following Scott McDonald´s injury-time winner.

The Brazilian goalkeeper appeared to be slapped on the shoulder and initially gave chase to the fan, before falling theatrically to the ground. He was then carried off on a stretcher while holding an ice pack to his face, before being replaced by Zeljko Kalac for the dying stages of Milan´s 2-1 defeat on Wednesday last week.
