Man United fined after fans threw objects at Simeone

Manchester United have been fined £8,420 (€10,000) after fans threw objects at Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone following their recent Champions League defeat.

Simeone was pelted with missiles as he walked to the tunnel after United’s 1-0 loss at OId Trafford.

Ralf Rangnick’s side were knocked out the Champions League thanks to a 2-1 defeat on aggregate to Atletico.

Rangers (£38,900) and Liverpool (£8,420) were also fined by Uefa.

Rangers must pay a total of 46,250 euros after fans lit fireworks and the team was deemed responsible for a late kick-off in their 1-0 Europa League loss to Braga on 7 April.

Liverpool have been fined 10,000 euros for a late kick-off in the 3-1 Champions League win at Benfica on 5 April, with manager Jurgen Klopp given a warning.

Galatasaray received a partial stadium closure – subject to a probationary period of two years – after home fans threw bottles and plastic cups onto the pitch when Barcelona ran down the clock towards the end of their Europa League win in Istanbul last month.
