Scottish champions Celtic and Italian giants Intern Milan have both been fined by UEFA for the behavior of their fans and players during what my friend Christian dubbed as a fiery encounter between the two, Sports Mole reports. Both Celtic and Inter Milan were fined after their fans set off flares in the San Siro stadium in February, however Celtic received an additional fine for their players behavior during the match that saw both coaches blame the referee and his decisions for the behavior of the players.
Celtic were fined over $15,000 for the behavior of their players and the fact two flares were set off in the stadium by fans in their assigned seating area. Milan were fined over $5,000 as their fans set off a single flare during the game at their home ground. Celtic have faced issues with UEFA’s disciplinary body over recent years for sectarian chanting and singing that has taken place during games. In the last three years the Glasgow based club have been charged on seven different occasions by UEFA over player and supporter behavior.
