UEFA investigate Ajax over 'crowd disturbances' during Celtic defeat

Ajax face disciplinary action from UEFA after a case was opened against them following misbehaviour from travelling supporters during their Champions League defeat at Celtic.

The governing body have accused the Dutch side of being responsible for "crowd disturbances and throwing of objects" during the match, a contravention of UEFA Disciplinary Regulation 16.

Ajax's case will be heard by the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body on November 21.

The club could be subject to a number of sanctions from the governing body, including a possible censure, fine and/or closure of a stand or their stadium.

Police Scotland said on Wednesday that they would be reviewing CCTV footage after fans were caught on camera ripping out seats, with home supporters alleging they were thrown in their direction.

No arrests were made by the police during the match.

Celtic won 2-1 to record their first victory of the UEFA Champions League group stage. Neil Lennon's side are due to travel to Amsterdam for their fourth game of the campaign on November 6.
