CELTIC have been fined over £13,000 after fans let off flares during their Europa League Group E 2-1 victory over Lazio in Rome last month.

The eight-in-a-row champions were handed a fine of £13,378 following a hearing of UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body.

Their Italian opponents were penalised £7,734 for their supporters setting off fireworks and throwing missiles in the same game.

It is the third financial punishment the Hoops have received for crowd misbehaviour this season.

They were fined £10,450 for incidents against AIK Stockholm in Sweden and £12,540 for banners and chanting in the home tie against Lazio, which also ended in another memorable 2-1 victory.

The Hoops hierarchy closed off part of Parkhead to a section of their support in the 3-1 final home group game against Rennes last month where they won 3-1.
