Another flare-up at Celtic. UEFA charge club for 17th time

October 9 – Celtic have been charged by UEFA for fans setting off fireworks just over two weeks after being fined for the use of flares and throwing objects.

The alleged incidents took place as the Scottish champions faced their Romanian opponents at Celtic Park on October 3.

UEFA have now charged the club with breaching disciplinary rules and the matter will be dealt with by the governing body’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body at a hearing on October 17.

It’s the second time this season that the club have been charged with the same offence, having been fined after flares were lit by away fans during their match against AIK Stockholm.

More seriously it is the 17th time Celtic have been fined by European football’s governing body since 2007.
