One steward reportedly sustained injuries after being hit by one of the chairs, while coins were also said to strike members of the Celtic crowd, including children.

A spokesperson for UEFA confirmed that disciplinary action will be taken against Ajax, with the outcome set to be made on November 21st.

It read, “Disciplinary proceedings have been opened against Ajax for crowd disturbances and throwing of objects [article 16 of the Uefa Disciplinary Regulations] at last night’s Champions League match in Glasgow against Celtic.

“The case will be dealt with by the Uefa Control and Disciplinary Body on November 21.”

Police Scotland are also reviewing the actions of Dutch supporters, although no arrests were made during the night.

A statement on Twitter read, “A full investigation is being carried out into the behaviour of a number of Dutch supporters.”

“Our officers are reviewing CCTV images. Any info gleaned will be shared with our Dutch counterparts to identify those involved.”
