UEFA have opened disciplinary proceedings following Celtic's Europa League play-off second-leg victory away at Swedish side AIK Fotboll.

Celtic's charges relate to supporters setting off fireworks and throwing objects in the stands during their 4-1 win in Stockholm.

AIK have also been penalised by UEFA for blocking stairways at the Nationalarenan.

The aforementioned cases will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 19 September.
