Linfield vs Celtic Uefa sanctions expected

Linfield face Uefa sanction over missiles

While Linfield players fought hard on the pitch, the club will likely face punishment over a number a missile-throwing incidents during the match.

As Celtic were celebrating their second goal, a projectile narrowly missed Griffiths.

In the second half, as the same player prepared to take a corner, coins and a glass bottle rained down from a section of the south stand. Griffiths was booked, apparently for time wasting, after protesting.

At that stage, Linfield chairman Roy McGivern went to that area, apparently to confront the troublemakers. But his intervention failed to prevent a number of further incidents.

Linfield were hoping to earn around £1m in prize money, gate receipts, television revenue, advertising and merchandising from this match.

But they could face a fine, and possibly having to play behind closed doors, if disciplinary chiefs take action over the distasteful incidents.

If Linfield fans feel it's ok to throw glass bottles at the player as he's taking corners then I'd suggest they are big enough to put up with him tieing a scarf around a post after the game.

Tic Tac toothed transvestite enthusiast Brendan Rogers has feigned shock horror at the incident, yet his own fans have a long history of throwing missiles on the pitch, sanctimonious prick. Griffiths was going out of his way to provoke a reaction from the Linfield Fans and he got one, it has to be said the yellow card he received was ridiculous






Should have been a straight red. :laughing6:
