Celtic back in trouble with UEFA for offensive banner
Berne: A week after fining Celtic for illicit chanting, UEFA opened new disciplinary proceedings against the Scottish club after their fans displayed an offensive banner and set off fireworks at last Thursday`s Europa League match at Udinese.
In a statement on their website, European soccer`s governing body said the case will be heard by their Control and Disciplinary Body on January 26.
Celtic were eliminated from the Europa League after a 1-1 draw with Udinese in their final group game.
UEFA fined Celtic 15,000 euros (12,700 pounds) after their fans chanted pro-Irish Republican Army (IRA) slogans during the 3-1 win over Rennes on November 3.
The 1967 European champions escaped action earlier this month for similar chants at a domestic match in October when the Scottish Premier League ruled the club had taken all reasonable action to prevent such "unacceptable conduct."
