Five Celtic fans guilty of Ajax game Amsterdam violence

Five Celtic fans have been found guilty of violence against police officers. A sixth man was acquitted.

They charged related to incidents before a Champions League game against Ajax in early November.

Dutch police had said eight undercover officers were injured and one of them was knocked unconscious.

The court in Amsterdam sentenced two of the supporters to two months in prison, two to six weeks, and a fifth was given a one-month sentence.

They have two weeks to appeal the verdict and are not being held in custody.
