    Celtic reinstated to UEFA Champions League

    By: Newsroom Staff on 08 Aug, 2014 09:57

  • CELTIC have been reinstated into the UEFA Champions League and will take their place in the draw for the play-off round today (Friday).

    It follows a hearing of the UEFA Disciplinary Committee in Nyon, who ruled that Legia Warsaw had fielded an ineligible player, Bartosz Bereszynski, in the third qualifying round second leg tie against Celtic at BT Murrayfield Stadium on Wednesday night.

    The decision, which is open to an appeal by Legia Warsaw within five days, is that Legia forfeit the match and Celtic are awarded a 3-0 victory, meaning that the Hoops go through on the away goals rule after a 4-4 aggregate score in the tie.

    The UEFA Champions League play-off draw takes place today (Friday), with Celtic one of the seeded teams.
