Celtic have been fined £25,000 (€29,000) by UEFA for incidents involving their supporters at last month's Champions League draw at home to Atletico Madrid.

Following a night when fans defied the club's pleas not to bring flags or banners relating to the war in the Middle East, the Hoops were fined £15,222 (€17,500) for displaying "a provocative message of an offensive nature".

Celtic were also fined £6,960 (€8,000) for their supporters blocking public passageways and £3,044 (€3,500) for the lighting of fireworks

Atletico were also sanctioned for issues surrounding the 2-2 draw in Glasgow on 25 October.

The Spanish club were fined £2,610 (€3,000) for the lighting of fireworks, while they received a warning for the "improper conduct of the team".
