FK Rabotnicki have landed a €10,000 (£8,000) fine following the racist abuse aimed at Liverpool's players during Europa League action last month.
The punishment was imposed by UEFA's control and disciplinary body, who cited the "discriminatory conduct of supports" in the third qualifying round first-leg match in Skopje on July 29th.
Pictures of the Macedonian side's supporters directing monkey taunts towards the Reds players emerged following the English side's 2-0 win.
Liverpool started the match at the Philip II Stadium with two black players in their side in David Ngog, who netted two goals, and 19-year-old winger David Amoo.
A statement on UEFA's official website read: "The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body has imposed a €10,000 fine on FK Rabotnicki for the discriminatory conduct of supporters during their UEFA Europa League third qualifying round first-leg match against Liverpool FC."
