SFA clears Celtic of any wrongdoing for offensive banners

Scottish champions Celtic have been cleared by the Scottish Football Association for their supporters' role in unfurling an offensive banner.

The Hoops fans made the banner for a pre-season match against Norwich City in regards to Glasgow rival Rangers financial position but they were charged on four counts for breaching the association's rules.

However, Celtic have not been found guilty by the SFA's Judicial Panel as confirmed by a club spokesman.

"Celtic Football Club opposes all forms of offensive behaviour and unacceptable conduct and our supporters are well aware of what is expected in this regard," said the spokesman.

"We are surprised and disappointed that after providing a significant volume of evidence and information about our safety procedures, that today's hearing was actually necessary.

"In addition to dropping several charges in advance of the hearing, the SFA's Judicial Panel also accepted that Celtic had not breached any SFA rules."
