Soccer:Celtic have been hit with a fine of €15,000 after their fans were reported for “illicit chanting” during the Europa League match against Rennes last month.

Uefa’s control and disciplinary panel imposed the fine after the match delegate was informed of pro-IRA chanting by the Strathclyde police match commander on November 3rd.

The fine was announced by the European governing body this afternoon after a decision was taken on Friday.

Celtic expressed their surprise at the charge when it was announced last month and said they would cooperate fully with any investigation.
