Celtic Charged By UEFA Over Palestinian Flags

share on:

UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Celtic, for flying illicit banners in the 5-2 win over Hapoel Be’er Sheva on Wednesday.

Around 100 Palestinian flags were flown by supporters at the Celtic Park, prior to the start of the UCL playoff 1st leg against the Israeli side.

UEFA forbids political expressions in football and on Friday confirmed Celtic had breached Article 16 (2) of their disciplinary regulations.

It is the second time the Scottish champions have been charged by UEFA for the waving of Palestinian flags, the first coming in July 2014 during a game against KR Reykjavik.

The case will be dealt with by the governing body’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on September 22.
