Bheggars And The Europa League


Recommended Posts

I really hope they get put back into the Europa League today.

Very little money in it, having to play on a Thursday then Sunday, gives us the advantage in the SPL, more chance of injuries and humiliation, a group of Atletico Madrid, Udinese and Rennes...

Make it happen UEFA.

I would rather they didn't get in, just for the laughs when they say UEFA are against them. Lennons attacker getting off with the sectarian charge (rightly so saying as he was a fecking catholic as well!) and this would cause a TIMplosion! (tu)

Don't want them anywhere near it!

Extra games, very tough group are all true but I can't shake the feeling it would be fate for them to go on and make a big impact in the competition. Don't want that to even be a slight possibility!

Not with that defence they won't , throw them to the lions !

Celtic have been reinstated in the 2011/12 Europa League after FC Sion were made to forfeit their two play-off round ties.

The Swiss side have been adjudged by UEFA to have included five ineligible players in their squad for the two fixtures, with Pascal Feindouno, Gabri, Mario Mutsch, Jose Goncalves and Billy Ketkeophomphone all taking to the field against Neil Lennon’s side.

FC Sion recorded a 0-0 draw in Glasgow and then ran out 3-1 winners at home last Thursday. But under UEFA’s Europa League regulations, Celtic have been awarded both games 3-0 by means of forfeit.

As a result, the Scottish Premier League side will now inherit Sion’s place in Group I of the Europa League and will face Atletico Madrid, Udinese and Rennes.

FC Sion however have the right of appeal to UEFA within the next three days, as well as having the option to elevate their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

As the fixtures currently stand, Celtic will play their first Europa League group stage match in Spain against Atletico Madrid on September 15.

Udinese will then visit Glasgow on September 29, before Neil Lennon’s side go to France to take on Rennes on October 20.

Celtic will then play a home double header against Rennes and Atletico Madrid on November 3 and 30 respectively, before rounding off the campaign with a visit to face Udinese on December 15.

Prior to Friday’s decision, Sion owner Christian Constantin had already vowed to take further action against any negative decision, with the Swiss press raising the possibility of a delay to the start of the group stages as a result.

Sion have the right to appeal to UEFA and are given three days following the notification of any decision to lodge their protest in writing. The grounds for their appeal must be submitted within six days. A fee of 1,000 Euro is payable.
