Fan out to kick Mbappe
LONDON: Celtic could face punishment from UEFA after a fan ran on to the pitch and appeared to aim a kick at Paris St Germain’s Kylian Mbappe during the first half of their 5-0 home defeat in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The fan ran towards Mbappe shortly after PSG’s third goal before being caught by stewards and taken off.
Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers expressed his disappointment, although he praised the reaction of most of the sellout crowd who loudly booed the invader.
“It was disappointing at any ground, at any club, a supporter getting on the pitch like that,” he said.
“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.”
Celtic were fined £20,000 pounds (RM111,316) by UEFA in July after an “illicit banner” was displayed in the crowd against Irish club Linfield in a Champions League qualifying match. Reuters
