A CELTIC fan who caused the club to receive a UEFA fine has been cleared of his latest court matter after prosecutors binned the case.

John Paul Murphy, 31, was alleged to have behaved in a threatening or abusive manner at a property in Maryhill on May 27.

He made headlines in 2008 when he was locked up and cost the club £42,000 UEFA fine for running on the pitch during a Champions League clash with Manchester United at Parkhead.

Court papers stated Murphy repeatedly struck a door and forced entry to the property on Gairbraid Avenue. It was alleged he shouted, roamed around the property and put owners Elizabeth Carrick and Alan Jordan in a state of fear and alarm, causing damage to the property.

Murphy did not appear in the dock after prosecutors did not call the case at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
