Celtic Can Expect Another UEFA Fine As Fan Invades Pitch To Kick Kylian Mbappe

There was a buzz in the air at Celtic Park as Brendan Rodgers' men kicked off against PSG and their utterly terrifying front three of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, and Edinson Cavani, but those hoping for another magical European night soon had their hopes dashed.

It took 20 minutes for the breakthrough to come, and when it did it was Neymar who was played through by a sublime Rabiot pass and finished with typical class.

PSG looked so crisp in possession and the lead was doubled 15 minutes later as Kylian Mbappe got his first Champions League goal for his new side with a confident finish, although that may be the least of Celtic's worrys after what followed.

A Celtic fan ran on to the pitch and appeared to attempt to kick Kylian Mbappe, and although he was unsuccessful, Celtic are likely to face UEFA action for the incident.

BBC Scotland's commentary provided some information as it was missed by the TV cameras:

The Celtic fans booed loudly after he tried to kick Mbappe, and those who saw the incident were quick to condemn it on Twitter.

What an absolute tit.

Celtic have been in a lot of trouble with UEFA over the actions of their fans in recent times, and then this plonker tries to kick an opposition player?

Great idea.

With so many packed in to Celtic park it is likely that footage will emerge soon, but even if it doesn't we can expect to hear a statement on this from the club, and probably from UEFA too, in the near future.
