UEFA throw out Arsenal and Galatasaray charges

UEFA have decided to drop charges against Arsenal and Galatasaray stemming from a Champions League match at the beginning of the month.

Flares were thrown onto the Emirates Stadium pitch from the away end in the Gunners' 4-1 triumph over the Turkish side in Group D of Europe's premier club competition on October 1.

UEFA charged Arsenal for 'insufficient organisation' in failing to properly search Galatasaray fans while the Istanbul outfit were also charged for the flare-throwing act.

The charges have since been dropped but Galatasaray have been ordered to pay £39,600 in damages to Arsenal.
