Celtic have been hit with another 'significant' UEFA fine over the use of pyrotechnics by their fans.

Prior to last month's group stage opener against Feyenoord in Rotterdam, a section of the travelling Hoops supporters set off flares. 

Their actions inside the Kuip Stadium have led to a punishment for the club handed down by European football's governing body. 

The Scottish champions will pay around £20,250 (€23,400) as Uefa do not condone the use of pyro in any stadium.

Over the past decade, Celtic have been fined over £250,000 by UEFA over issues such as pyro and banners.

Now, the club has issued a statement ahead of tonight's matchday two clash against Lazio at Parkhead. They have demanded that those responsible stop putting others at risk. 

It reads: “Clearly, we are concerned that, despite repeated requests and safety warnings, a small minority continue to use pyrotechnics at Celtic’s matches.

"The use of pyrotechnics represents a serious risk to the safety of our supporters. Celtic has been hit with another significant sanction by UEFA due to this behaviour. Again, the club requests that this conduct stops."

Meanwhile, the SPFL has announced that cinch has exercised its right to conclude its title sponsorship deal at the end of the current season.

The SPFL and cinch signed a five-year contract in 2021, which gave cinch the option to exit after three seasons. The deal played its part in helping the SPFL deliver record-breaking revenues back to its 42 clubs in the last 12 months.

Neil Doncaster, SPFL Chief Executive, said: “cinch has been an excellent sponsor for the SPFL and has been clear on the significant boost to its brand awareness from our partnership. We will, of course, ensure that cinch continues to enjoy the many benefits of its sponsorship of the cinch SPFL for the rest of what promises to be a hugely exciting league campaign.

“The passion, drama and excitement of the SPFL has played a leading role in driving cinch’s considerable brand growth in Scotland and across the rest of the UK. Working closely with Scottish Football Marketing, we will now begin the process of securing a new title sponsor for next season and beyond, and anticipate strong interest from businesses which recognise the unique value of partnering with Scotland’s premier football competition.”
