Uefa have handed down a €10,000 to Celtic over the Palestinian flags displayed by fans in the club’s Champions League play-off with Hapoel Beer-Sheva.

Waving of the flags, done as a protest against Israel, was in defiance of disciplinary regulations laid down by European football’s governing body.

A disciplinary hearing was heard on Wednesday, where the complaint was upheld and a fine of €10,000 imposed on the club.

Celtic have been disciplined on 11 other occasions since 2007, with the fines now totalling £200,000.
