European Football Headlines
GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) Celtic has been cleared by the Scottish Football Association of four charges relating to an alleged offensive banner displayed by the club's fans during a preseason friendly against Norwich in July.
The banner is believed to have mocked the perilous financial situation that Rangers, Celtic's bitter Glasgow rival, was in at the time.
The SFA charged the Scottish champions with failing to prevent their supporters from bringing the banner into Parkhead, displaying it and being allowed to retain possession of it.
The SFA on Thursday gave a not-guilty verdict for four alleged disciplinary breaches.
