Celtic have this evening been charged by UEFA for ‘setting off fireworks’ when they entertained Cluj on match-day two – most likely referring to the Tifo by The Green Brigade which was excellently executed.
The banner which depicted Muhammad Ali on his knees only to rise up with the message ‘Ain’t nothing wrong with going down, it’s staying down that’s wrong’.
Pyro was then used inside the section in a display which was widely praised by the Celtic support and the wider football community.
Our reporter at the game captured the video which went viral and even Soccer Bible contacted us about the footage to share with their 1.2m followers.

The use of pyro is forbidden inside stadiums and UEFA don’t care if it’s done safely or not. Celtic have already had an away day find this term for the same reason and the club will now face disciplinary measures in October 17th.
The club will have no little power in defending the use of pyro with another fine likely.
