Higuain avoids UEFA sanction

Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain has avoided disciplinary action for a rude gesture to Barcelona fans last night.

The former Real Madrid player was seen giving the finger to the stands at Camp Nou in last night’s Champions League match, which could have led to a UEFA ban.

However, the governing body has today confirmed that no disciplinary proceedings have been opened with regard to that match.

Celtic have been charged after a fan invaded the pitch in their 5-0 home defeat to Paris Saint-Germain, with the away fans accused of damaging seats at Celtic Park.

FC Basel are also under investigation for setting of fireworks in their defeat to Manchester United.
