Celtic has been charged for the second game in a row by UEFA.
Charges against Celtic FC:
• Illicit banner – Art. 16 (2) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations
• Kit infringement – Art. 62 (3) of UEFA Kit Regulations
• Stairways blocked – Art. 38 of UEFA Safety & Security Regulations
The GB banners from last night game have put the club in hot water, rightly or wrongly we’re back in the dock for a banner that really didn’t do anything other than getting the club reprimanded.
Kit infringement is to do with the bibs Celtic were wearing. This charge almost feels comical.
The third charge relates to our stairways being blocked, no clarification as to who was doing the blocking. Early reports indicate it could have been the police in attendance.
While some might rush to get on the GB bashing bandwagon we must point out that Celtic now have FIVE charges against their name in two games and only one of them is down to fan behaviour. The other four are petty, comical and bogus.
We will be covering fans thoughts on GB’s latest banners later on today. Keep a look out for it. It’s a very divisive issue.
This case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 28 July 2017.
