Celtic receive UEFA fine for 'illicit banner' displayed during Champions League tie against Hapoel Be'er Sheva
Celtic have been fined 10,000 euros (£8,616) by UEFA after fans displayed an 'illicit banner' during their recent Champions League qualifier against Hapoel Be'er Sheva.
Fans flew Palestine flags before and during the match against Israeli opposition at Parkhead on August 17, drawing a charge from European football's governing body.
UEFA viewed the flags as illicit banners under article 16 of its disciplinary regulations and at a disciplinary hearing the complaint against the Scottish champions was upheld and the club was fined.
