EUROPEAN bosses UEFA have opened disciplinary proceedings following Celtic’s Europa League play-off second-leg 4-1 win against AIK in Stockholm last week.

Charges against the Hoops relate to supporters setting off fireworks and throwing objects in the stands during the match.

Opponents AIK have also been penalised by the European governing body for blocking stairways at the Nationalarenan.

Celtic made a complaint to the European rulers BEFORE the tie in Sweden when they insisted fans of another team had infiltrated the end housing visiting supporters, as CQN reported.

The cases will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body when they meet a fortnight on Thursday.

Goals from James Forrest, Mikey Johnston, Christopher Jullien and Lewis Morgan made certain of a place in the group stages where Neil Lennon’s side will meet Champions League conquerors Cluj, of Romania, Serie A outfit Lazio and French Cup winners Rennes.

The first tie is due against the Ligue 1 outfit on Thursday, September 19 – the date due for the UEFA meeting.
