The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body today dealt with the two protests lodged by Celtic FC against the validity of their UEFA Europa League play-off ties played against FC Sion on 18 and 25 August.
The Scottish club questioned the eligibility of a number of the Sion players who participated in these matches, with the Swiss side winning 3-1 on aggregate. The Control and Disciplinary Body accepted both protests and decided to award both ties to Celtic by forfeit (3-0).
As a consequence, Celtic are qualified for the UEFA Europa League group stage. An appeal can be lodged against these decisions within three days of receipt of the written grounds for the decisions.
