Rogic's Celtic team-mate charged after ill-tempered UCL clash


Socceroos midfielder Tom Rogic's Celtic team-mate Leigh Griffiths had objects thrown at him during their UEFA Champions League match at Linfield, but has been charged with provoking spectators.

Early goals from Scott Sinclair and Rogic gave Brendan Rodgers' side a 2-0 victory in the first leg of the Champions League second-round qualifier at Windsor Park, but the match was marred by fans throwing missiles at Celtic players.

After one such incident, Griffiths was booked, having complained to the referee Alejandro Hernandez about a bottle being thrown in his direction as he prepared to take a corner.

Then after the final whistle, Scotland international Griffiths tied a Celtic scarf to one of the goalposts.

Celtic have also been charged with improper conduct for having five players booked during the match, while Linfield must answer charges in relation to throwing objects and supporters invading the field.

UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary body will deal with the case on Thursday.
