Pyrotechnics were set off in the away end of the Etihad Stadium as Celtic closed out their European campaign with a 1-1 draw.

There were also reports of crowd disturbances from the December fixture with rival fans clashing inside the ground.

Celtic have now been punished 13 times by Europe’s governing body since 2007, with fines totalling over £200,000.

Earlier in the same campaign, the club were fined €10,000 after fans displayed Palestine flags during the Champions League qualifier with Israeli side Hapoel Beer-Sheva.
