Celtic in more trouble with UEFA

Celtic is facing charges from UEFA for the second time in two months as the club is being charged with two offenses related to the Europa League match against Udinese in Italy.

UEFA has confirmed that Celtic is being charged with "the displaying of a banner of an offensive nature and the setting off of fireworks by supporters."

The case will be heard on January 26 by UEFA's control and disciplinary body.

Celtic had just recently been fined nearly $20,000 for "illicit chanting" involving pro-IRA songs during a Europa League match against Rennes at home when the club's fans held up a banner that insulted UEFA at the Udinese match.

A number of flares were also set off by Celtic fans, including one that was thrown onto the track surrounding the field.
