It is the second time in less than a year the SFA has been punished by the game’s governing body for “improper conduct” of supporters.

The SFA was fined almost £16,000 in November for fans booing the national anthem and Scotland players displaying poppies at Wembley’s qualifier on Armistice Day, with “throwing objects, political banners and flags” also taken into consideration.
