Celtic facing more sanctions after second Linfield clash

Leigh Griffiths

Scotland global Griffiths was targeted by objects thrown from a section of the home crowd while taking a corner.

DUP MP Gregory Campbell said decisive action is needed by both the club and Uefa after a string of offences in Europe by Celtic.

Celtic seem to think so - at least with regards to the governing body's response to crowd trouble during and after Celtic's Champions League qualifier against Linfield FC in Belfast last week.

The charge is in relation to an incident which took place after the game in which the Scot tied a Celtic scarf to the goalposts in front of the 300 travelling hoops fans.

That yellow card took the Hoops" tally to five for the match and Uefa have also charged Celtic with "improper conduct of the team'.

When issues like this arise a certain degree of common sense has to come in to play.

It was also revealed that Princess Jasmine will NOT be played by Little Mix star Jade Thirlwall, despite many reports . Disney has found its Aladdin , Jasmine, and Genie for the live-action adaptation of the animated classic " Aladdin ".

UEFA opened a second wave of charges against Celtic after fans raised a paramilitary-style banner at a Champions League game.

Celtic's Leigh Griffiths is charged by UEFA with "provoking spectators after the end of the match", while Linfield are in the dock over objects thrown on the pitch and a "field invasion by supporters".

As Griffiths - a Scotland global - prepared to take a corner he was shown a yellow card in rather controversial circumstances as he complained to the referee when bottles from the crowd were thrown at him.

Celtic said they have launched an inquiry.

Police also warned fans that it is an offence to use threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour or display written material likely to stir up hate crimes, as well as to bring flares, fireworks and pellets into the sports ground. A full list of charges can be viewed here.

The case will be dealt with on July 28.
