Celtic have been reinstated in the Europa League after Uefa expelled Sion from the competition.

Sion, who are likely to appeal the verdict, fielded several ineligible players during their 3-1 aggregate win over Celtic in the play-off round.

A Celtic spokesman said: “We have been advised by Uefa that the two protests relating to the matches against FC Sion have been upheld.

“As a result of which each match has been forfeited in favour of Celtic.”


This is something of a reprieve, not just for Celtic but for Scottish football in general. It had looked as though there would be no SPL sides in European competition after a particularly poor set of results.

Celtic will face a very difficult group as they come up against Atletico Madrid, Rennes and Udinese.
