Celtic will part-close Parkhead for the Europa League clash of Thursday with Rennes amid safety concerns over the actions of segments of the home service.
Celtic were #12,900 from UEFA on Friday after fans displayed anillegal banner and staged obscene chants throughout their Europa League match at home to Lazio last month.
Consequently, the Scottish champions have decided to shut rows A to M in the scene that holds the club fan group the Green Brigades rail section.
Celtic fined # 11,000 to their lovers throwing objects in the play-off second-leg triumph over AIK and with flares and were also fined # 10,400 for supporters setting off flares from the Europa League triumph over Cluj in October.
Celtic has ultimate responsibility for the security of all our supporters and its a responsibility that we take quite badly, said a statement about the clubs official website.
We will need to tackle any behavior which can compromise the security of our fans including using pyrotechnics, overcrowding and offensive chanting or banners.
After the latest UEFA disciplinary choice we can affirm that there will be a partial closure of the rail seating section in Celtic Park for its forthcoming game against Rennes.
All those fans affected will be informed and will get a refund.
This conclusion follows similar major sanctions being levied against the club this year for the use of pyrotechnics throughout the games against CFR Cluj along with AIK Stockholm.
The club also faces an additional UEFA charge for using pyrotechnics throughout the game in Rome recently and this is observed on 12th December 2019.
Unfortunately, these fees and sanctions continue to damage the clubs reputation and this behavior continues to undermine supporter security.
UEFAs rules and the club long-established ground regulations are extremely apparent.
Indeed, the club participates in regular dialogue with all supporters groups to ensure these are well known and recognized.
We have considered this issue very carefully. Its unsatisfactory that behaviour thats dangerous and we all understand will breach UEFA and club regulations has continued.
