Celtic reinstated in UEFA Europa League subject to appeal
CELTIC were today reinstated in the UEFA Europa League, subject to appeal, after UEFA upheld the club’s complaint relating to the matches against FC Sion.
The Swiss club were charged by UEFA of fielding ineligible players in both Europa League play-off ties against the Hoops and the two European games were played under protest by Celtic.
A club spokesperson said: “We have been advised by UEFA that the two protests relating to the matches against FC Sion have been upheld, as a result of which each match has been forfeited in favour of Celtic.
“We are pleased by this decision, the approach which has been taken by UEFA and the fact that UEFA rules and regulations have been upheld. We are also grateful for the support of the SFA in this matter.”
