CELTIC this morning have been notified that they have been fined for the incident at the opening Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain when a supporter entered the field of play.
UEFA have issued a 10,000 Euros fine for the Field Invasion under Article 16 (2) of their Disciplinary Regulations.
Paris Saint-Germain have also been fined 5000 Euros for Acts of damage, relating to broken seats in the away end as their fans celebrated their 5-0 win.
It is not known whether PSG will ask UEFA for time to pay up the fine!
Celtic will feel somewhat relieved that the punishment is not more, with many commentators expressing a view that UEFA might look at a closure of a stand as a consequence of a sequence of incidents that have resulted in fines.
Celtic last week took 10,000 supporters to Munich and came back with no arrests, no trouble and no charges from UEFA!
