Celtic face UEFA ‘fireworks’ rap after AIK Europa League clash

Celtic will face disciplinary action after last week’s win against AIK in Stockholm.

The club will be hauled up before a panel to face charges relating to “setting off fireworks” and “throwing of objects” at the match.

They will face a grilling from the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body over the allegations on 19 September.

Fans were pictured with a number of flares at the match, with trouble flaring at half-time.

Security personnel were seen on video drawing batons in what looked like a non-threatening situation.

The charges Celtic face are:

– Setting off of fireworks – Art. 16 (2) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations (DR)
– Throwing of objects – Art. 16 (2) DR

AIK will face charges relating to overcrowded stairways.

Racial abuse from fans aimed at Boli Bolingoli appears to have been overlooked, as have crowd disturbances in the away end when AIK visited Glasgow for the first leg.
