CELTIC today, Thursday, October 11, have been found Not Guilty by the SFA’s Judicial Panel of alleged breaches of SFA rules relating to a banner displayed at Celtic Park during a pre-season friendly with Norwich City FC.
A club spokesperson said: “Celtic Football Club opposes all forms of offensive behaviour and unacceptable conduct and our supporters are well aware of what is expected in this regard.”
“We are surprised and disappointed that after providing a significant volume of evidence and information about our safety procedures, that today’s hearing was actually necessary.
“In addition to dropping several charges in advance of the hearing, the SFA’s Judicial Panel also accepted that Celtic had not breached any SFA rules.
“We believe that Celtic Park’s safety and security procedures are of the highest standard, something which was successfully demonstrated to the Judicial Panel by the club and by several witnesses, including independent industry experts.”
