Celtic fined by Uefa over 'illicit chanting'
Monday 12 December 2011
Celtic have been hit with a fine of 15,000 euros after their fans were reported for "illicit chanting" during the Europa League match against Rennes last month.
UEFA's control and disciplinary panel imposed the fine after the match delegate was informed of pro-IRA chanting by the Strathclyde police match commander on November 3.
The fine was announced by the European governing body this afternoon after a decision was taken on Friday.
Celtic expressed their surprise at the charge when it was announced last month and said they would cooperate fully with any investigation.
