UEFA have fined Celtic and Lazio for certain sections of their supporters behaviour following the Hoops’ 2-1 victory at Parkhead last month.
According to the Evening Times, UEFA have charged Celtic £13,000 for use of ‘illicit chants’ and ‘illicit banners’ during the home win over Lazio, while the Serie A side have been fined £8,500 for ‘illicit chants,’ after their fans were pictured marching through Glasgow making facist salutes.
The banner of Benito Mussolini hanging upside down and another displaying “Lazio Vaffanculo” are reportedly two of the reasons for the Hoops’ fine.

The latest fine is the third handed to Celtic by UEFA this season, after the governing body charged the Hoops for fans’ use of pyrotechnics in games against AIK and CFR Cluj.
Celtic have progressed through to the Europa League knockout stages with two games to spare, and will now have their sights set on finishing top of the group.
Lazio’s hopes of progressing hang by a thread meanwhile, with the Serie A side needing both themselves and Celtic to win both of their remaining games to stand any chance.
