Uefa charges Celtic & Linfield

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths faces further disciplinary action on top of his bizarre Belfast booking after being accused of "provoking" Linfield supporters during a Champions League qualifying match.

Uefa has opened a case against Griffiths over his actions at the end of Celtic's 2-0 second qualifying round first-leg win at Windsor Park last Friday.

The Scotland international, who was earlier pelted with missiles including a glass bottle, tied a Celtic scarf to a goalpost. The European governing body has also instigated disciplinary action against Linfield over their supporters' behaviour, and Celtic for their yellow card count.

Middlesbrough are close to breaking their transfer record by signing Nottingham Forest strikerBritt Assombalonga for £14m.

Assombalonga, 24, is currently in talks with Boro at their Rockliffe Park training ground after the two clubs agreed the broad outlines of the transfer fee.

Burnley made a bid for the Zaire-born forward earlier this summer but Middlesbrough have outbid their rivals and look set to sign a man who scored 14 goals in 33 games last season.

If the deal is finalised then the signing will eclipse the £12.7 million that Middlesbrough paid for Brazilian striker Afonso Alves in 2008.
