CELTIC have been hit with a UEFA charge after fireworks were set off in a section of fans in the 2-0 Europa League Group E win at Parkhead on Thursday night.

The governing body are poised to take action on the Hoops for “setting off fireworks”, which is a breach of article 16 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations.

A decision will be made on the case a week tomorrow, seven days before Neil Lennon’s men face Lazio in Glasgow.

Supporters are also in a sweat about the away game with the Serie A giants, as the Stadio Olimpico may be closed due to racist chanting.

The Italians have been charged after fans allegedly engaged in racist behaviour in last week’s win over Rennes. The verdict will also be made public on October 17.

Celtic went top of their group with goals from Odsonne Edouard and Mohamed Elyounoussi gave them three points against their Romanian Champions League conquerors.

Lennon’s side are a point above both Lazio and Cluj.
