comment on the article

There's recent report from SKY SPORTS claiming Celtic have been fined 25,000 pounds and DIDA has been banned for TWO Champions League games.

These punishments have in fact been confirmed by SKY SPORTS. Celtic should be happy with just a fine but MILAN will be LIVID and they certainly will appeal but i think it won't change much.

Serves him right - punish the cheats; perhaps they'll realise they can't get away with the acting.

no it isn't. Racism is the ultimate sin within the game, cheating is second.

Bonkers in the extreme that Milan get punished on the field whilst Celtic get away scot (as it were)-free - it was THEIR fan who invaded the pitch!

I don't condone Dida's actions, and neither does any true footie fan - so by all means fine him; but to allow his penalty to impact on the club is absolutely wrong.

Have Milan forgotten that despite being found GUILTY of match fixing and corruption with Juve, Lazio and Fiorentina they got let back into CL which they ended up winning? I hope UEFA double Dida's punishment on basis of pure cheek from Milan for appealing this.

donsmad83 - may I suggest you sort out your facts from your opinion prior to posting. Milan were never found guilty.

You sure it wasnt you that ran on the pitch??

Euroglory - they WERE found guilty, had an initial 15 point penalty reduced to 8 and CL ban uplifted after appeal. See I have the facts to back up opinion ;)

dida was an idiot but he has been hard done by - no consistency at all. every player that takes a dive should now get a two match ban - i don't think so.

How did the Celtic fan get on the pitch in the first place?

Celtic should NOT be fined - AC Milan SHOULD & Dida should be banned from all the next Champions League group games.

To be honest

Dida is a bit of a pillock anyway

What was that, he got touched, ran after him, realised he weren't getting him n collapsed, ice packs, stretcher, subbed!
