Celtic: Fans react nonchalantly to club being fined by UEFA over incidents against AIK

Celtic have been fined by UEFA for setting off fireworks and throwing objects during their 4-1 win over AIK in the Europa League play-offs last month.

UEFA.com specified that the Hoops were fined €12,500 (£11,041) by its Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body relating to those two charges of fan misconduct in Sweden, with Clyde 1 Superscoreboard on Twitter notifying followers of the news via @ClydeSSB.

AIK were also fined €8,000 (£7,066) for stairways being blocked, as specified by UEFA.com.

The Scottish champions have had a history of falling foul of European football’s governing body, with BBC reporting that this is the 17th time since 2007 that Celtic have been fined by UEFA.

The Hoops were last punished in similar fashion two years ago when a spectator ran onto the pitch at Celtic Park during a Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain and tried to kick Kylian Mbappe, for which the club were fined €10,000 (£8,900) as reported by BBC.

These Celtic fans on Twitter did not seem overly bothered by the latest fine handed down to the club over the misconduct of some supporters:
