CELTIC have been hit with three UEFA charges after the midweek 4-0 win over Linfield – including a “kit infringement”.
The charges over illicit banners and blocking stairs are self-explanatory, but the third complaint of “kit infringement” has left a number of supporters puzzled.
The UEFA rulebook underlines there was nothing wrong with the six-in-a-row champions’ traditional green and white hoops.
It was more to do with the choice of gear the substitutes were wearing – the bibs, in particular.
UEFA’s constitution (article 62.03) states that “sponsor advertising is prohibited on warm-up bibs”.
The Hoops made the “mistake” of displaying the brand ‘Magners’ on their kit.
However, it’s understood they are likely to receive only a warning for the offence.
