Uefa opens case for Celtic fan 'kick'


Uefa has opened disciplinary proceedings against Glasgow Celtic after one of their supporters invaded the pitch during Tuesday's Champions League defeat to Paris St-Germain at Celtic Park.

The 21-year-old ran onto the pitch shortly after the French side scored their third goal in a chastening 5-0 loss to the Qatar-backed club.

The man aimed a kick at PSG striker Kylian Mbappe although he missed his target and was apprehended by stewards and led off the pitch.

Police Scotland have charged the man with alleged pitch incursion and assault, while among seven arrests on the night, another three men were taken into custody accused of assault, breach of the peace and violating the offensive behaviour at football act 2012.

Having been fined by European football's governing body over an 'illicit banner' being displayed during July's qualifying win over Linfield, Uefa have now opened another case against the club over the invading supporter with their control, ethics and disciplinary body scheduled to consider the case on 19 October.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers admitted he was pleased the home crowd booed en-masse when the fan invaded the pitch.

I think their reaction said it all," he said. "It was disappointing at any ground, at any club, a supporter getting on the

pitch like that. 

"It was bitterly disappointing and I am sure the club will deal with whoever that supporter was. It shouldn't be anything that we should see.

"I think the stewards dealt with it at the time and I am sure the club will deal with it."

All of Celtic's remaining Champions League fixtures are on the eir Sport pack with their next game against Anderlecht in Belgium on Wednesday September 27, kick-off 7.45pm
