Celtic have been hit with a fine of more than ?10,000 following their latest UEFA charge.

The Scottish champions were punished after fans set off fireworks during their Europa League draw against Fenerbahce in Turkey and for "improper conduct of the team".

The latter charge is automatically triggered when a team receives five yellow cards in a European match, which happened to Celtic during the 1-1 draw on December 10.

UEFA announced the 13,000 euros punishment on Tuesday following a meeting of their control, ethics and disciplinary body.

Celtic issued indefinite bans to two supporters following the incidents in Turkey and revealed in December that they were considering legal action against individual fans.

Celtic were hit with a 10,000 euro fine for an identical charge sheet following their defeat by Inter Milan in Italy earlier in 2015 and the latest case was the eighth time in five seasons that they have been punished by the European governing body for supporter misconduct.
