    Celtic FC Statement

    By: Newsroom Staff on 30 Oct, 2014 16:04

  • AN SFA disciplinary tribunal has today upheld the complaint that Aleksandar Tonev breached disciplinary rule 202: ‘Excessive Misconduct by the use of offensive, insulting and abusive language of a racist nature,’ during a game at Celtic Park against Aberdeen in September.

    The Bulgarian midfielder has been given a seven-match immediate suspension.

    A Celtic spokesperson said: "Racism has no place in football and as a Club for all people, Celtic absolutely abhors racism of any kind.

    "This was a very unfortunate case, but the Club has accepted Aleksandar’s explanation that he did not say the words that were alleged to have been said and that he is not a racist.

    "We are, therefore, very disappointed by the outcome today and can confirm that Aleksandar will be appealing this decision.”
