Uefa delays Celtic disciplinary hearing by a month

Celtic fans have come in for criticism for their behaviour in Italy
A Uefa backlog means Celtic's hearing has been delayed by a month

Celtic must wait another month to find out if they will be punished by Uefa for fan-related incidents during their Europa League match against Udinese.

Uefa charged Celtic with "the displaying of an offensive banner and setting off of fireworks by fans" in their match in Italy on 15 December.

The incidents had been included in the match delegate's report.

Uefa's Control and Disciplinary Body was due to hear the case on Thursday but it has been moved to 24 February.

Celtic banned a fan for life who they said was responsible for displaying the banner and attacking a steward in Udinese's Stadio Friuli.

In December, Celtic were fined for "illicit chanting" by a section of their support in an earlier Europa League Group I home game against Rennes.
