Celtic & Rangers hit with UEFA fines over ‘throwing of objects’

CELTIC and Rangers have been hit with fines from UEFA after the throwing of objects during Europa League group stage matches.

Parkhead chiefs have been slapped with two fines for objects thrown and fireworks lit by fans during the away match against Bayer Leverkusen.

Celtic were fined €30,375, around £26,000, for instances of objects being thrown and a further €7,750, around £6,600, for firework incidents.

Leverkusen were also hit with a €5,500 fine for the throwing of objects.

Rangers will have to stump up €6,000, around £5,000, after objects were thrown in the Ibrox victory over Sparta Prague.

Ibrox chiefs face the fine after being punished by UEFA last month for the “the lighting and throwing of an object”.

They were fined €5,250 over the incident in the match away to Brondby.

Celtic too have faced disciplinary action this season in Europe.

The club were handed a €15,000 fine from UEFA after supporters displayed a banner deemed to be “provocative and offensive”.
