CELTIC HAVE BEEN hit with a €10,000 fine after an incident during last month’s Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Scottish treble-winners were beaten 5-0 by Unai Emery’s men at Celtic Park, in a game that was temporarily disrupted in the 40th minute by a pitch-invader.

After gaining access to the field of play, the Hoops fan ran towards PSG forward Kylian Mbappe and attempted to kick out at the France international.

He was then escorted away by stadium stewards.

The BBC report that the 21-year-old man has been banned from every ground in the UK by the Glasgow Sheriff Court, while Uefa have ordered the Hoops to pay a sum of €10,000 for his actions.
