UEFA Fines Celtic €10k After A Supporter Ran To The Pitch And Attempted To Attack Paris St-Germain Striker Kylian Mbappe.

The UEFA disciplinary body has fined Scottish football club Celtic 10,000 after a supporter ran onto the pitch in their Champions League game last month against Paris St-Germain and tried to kick striker Kylian Mbappe.

The fan John Hatton, 21, admitted to the attempted assault at Glasgow Sheriff Court. He was also banned from every football ground in the UK by Sheriff Sukwinder Gill.

The fan who hails from Belfast, jumped over a metal railing and aimed a kick at Mbappe after Edinson Cavani had scored the French team’s third goal in a 5-0 win.

Uefa’s control, ethics and disciplinary body also fined Paris St-Germain £4,450 (5,000 euros) for damage to seats at the match on 12 September

According to BBC Sport, it’s the 12th time in six years that UEFA’s disciplinary body has punished Celtic regarding their fans’ behaviour. In July, Celtic were fined £20,600 after an “illicit banner” was displayed during their game against Linfield.
