UEFA opens disciplinary proceedings against Celtic over fan pitch invader

UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Celtic following the pitch invasion by a fan during the Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain. SkySports said

 

The supporter raced onto the Parkhead pitch late in the first half of Celtic's 5-0 defeat and darted towards PSG's Kylian Mbappe.

 

He aimed a fresh-air kick at the former Monaco striker but failed to make contact before he was whisked away by stewards and subsequently arrested.

 

Celtic were fined just over £20,000 by UEFA for crowd offences in their home Champions League qualifier against Linfield in July.

 

That was Celtic's 11th punishment in six seasons relating to supporter misconduct during European ties, with over £160,000 in fines incurred over the same period, and Charlie Nicholas fears for his former club.

 

 

The Sky Sports pundit said: "I think Celtic have had five fines now for a political protest and everything else with the fans,

 

"The warning is that the next home game could be a closed-door event, so I'm really scared about what's going to happen with the punishment for Celtic tonight."

 

PSG have also been charged as a result of some damage that occurred in the section housing their supporters during the game on Tuesday.

 

Both cases will be heard by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 19 October.

 

Police have confirmed that there were seven arrests in total at the game, four of whom were still in custody on Wednesday, 13 September.
