Dida and Milan face Uefa investigation over Celtic incident

Uefa have confirmed they have opened disciplinary proceedings against Milan and Dida following the incident involving the goalkeeper and a Celtic fan during last week's UEFA Champions League clash. Celtic's dramatic 2-1 win at Parkhead was marred by the incident involving Dida and a home supporter, after Scott McDonald's late winner at Parkhead. The Celtic fan entered the pitch and clipped Dida as he ran past him celebrating the goal. Dida initially chased the fan before theatrically falling to the floor clutching his face and being stretchered off. The Brazilian's antics have come in for heavy criticism; with Celtic chairman Brian Quinn calling for Uefa to look into Dida's actions. Uefa have already launched disciplinary proceedings against Celtic in the wake of the incident and now European football's governing body are to investigate the conduct of both Milan and Dida. Uefa's control and disciplinary body will deal with the case on 11th October.
