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