The incident relates to their win over Cluj in the Europa League, where pyrotechnics could be seen in the section belonging to the Green Brigade.

The fans group displayed an Muhammad Ali-inspired banner before the game, which read: "Ain't nothing wrong with going down. It's staying down that's wrong."

Uefa have announced that the reigning Ladbrokes Premiership champions face a charge for "setting off fireworks", which is a breach of disciplinary regulations.

A decision will be made on October 17.
