Banner adds to Celtic's bad night
Friday 16 December 2011
Celtic crashed out of the Europa League last night despite a valiant effort against Udinese as they drew 1-1 in their final Group I game in the Stadio Friuli.
The visitors, needing victory to go through, took the lead in the 29th minute when Gary Hooper took advantage of a mix-up in the Udinese defence to tap in from a yard out. But veteran striker Antonio Di Natale equalised from close range himself with seconds remaining in the first half after Celtic defender Cha Du-ri inadvertently headed into his path.
To add to Celtic's troubles, some of their supporters unfurled a banner saying 'Fuck Uefa' after the European governing body fined the club this week for fans' 'illicit chanting' and a flare was thrown onto the running track.
