Ajax fined for fans' religious insult
NYON, Switzerland (AP)
The banner targeted a religious insult at Celtic, which traditionally draws its fans from the Catholic community in Scotland and Ireland, during Ajax's 1-0 win in Amsterdam last week.
UEFA says Ajax was fined for ''improper conduct'' by fans. The Netherlands champion originally faced a ''discriminatory behavior'' charge.
Ajax faces a second disciplinary hearing at UEFA next week after Dutch fans ripped up seats at Celtic Park when the teams first played last month.
