Celtic won’t fight UEFA fine for ‘illicit’ chanting
CELTIC will not appeal against the fine imposed by UEFA for “illicit chanting” at last month’s Europa League tie against Rennes at Celtic Park.
UEFA’S contr ol and disciplinar y panel imposed a penalty of £12,700 for chanting at the 3-1 win on November 3. The match delegate was infor med of pro-ira chanting by the Strathclyde police match commander.
Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell said: “However small a minority is involved, such chanting is not welcome at Celtic Football Club.”
Earlier this month, Celtic escaped SPL action over pro-ira chanting – the league r uling the club had taken all r easonable action to pr event such “unacceptable conduct”.
