CELTIC have been fined €15,000 (around £12,500) by UEFA after supporters displayed a banner deemed to be "provacative and offensive" during their Europa League fixture at home to Ferencvaros.

The European tie kicked off at the unusual time of 3:30pm on a Tuesday, prompting some supporters to create a banner criticising European football's governing body for the decision.

The banner took the form of a Countdown conundrum containing a swear word when the letters were rearranged, with a message of 'Conundrum clue: Fans before TV' accompanying it underneath.

UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body met on Friday to charge the Glasgow club, ordering Celtic to pay the €15,000 within 90 days.
