UEFA issued fines for Paris Saint-Germain, Celtic and Basel over crowd troubles and damages caused by their spectators.

Celtic and Paris Saint-Germain have been fined for crowd trouble after last month’s Champions League game between the teams, European football’s governing body said on Monday, MARCA reported.

UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body fined Celtic $12,000 for field invasion after a supporter ran on to the pitch and attempted to kick PSG striker Kylian Mbappe during their 5-0 home loss in the Group B opener.

The supporter ran towards the French forward as the Scottish side prepared to kick off after the third goal, before being caught by stewards and escorted from the pitch.

PSG was fined $6,000 for acts of damage after visiting supporters broke seats at Celtic Park. Meanwhile, Swiss side Basel has been fined $14,000 after supporters set off fireworks in their Group A game against Manchester United at Old Trafford last month.
