Celtic Hit with UEFA Fine

UEFA have hit Celtic with a £10,400 fine for setting off a flare in the home game versus Cluj at the start of this month.

Celtic won the match 2-0 thanks to goals from Odsonne Edouard and Mohammed Elyounoussi; however, the game started with a stunning tifo depicting Mohammed Ali, which was accompanied with flares, which UEFA have punished Celtic for.

This is the eighteenth time that the club has been fined since 2007 by Europe’s footballing governing body and shortly after the game, the club released a statement begging supporters to stop using the pyrotechnics as the risks outweigh the benefits.

UEFA rules dictate that the lighting of flares within stadiums is strictly prohibited and Celtic have said that the continued use of pyrotechnics will result in the fantastic reputation that the club’s support has being tarnished.
