Celtic Back In Europe....

Yesterday the Swiss court ruled against Sion  after were kicked out of the competition after Celtic complained about the club fielding players signed while they were subject to a transfer ban.

A statement from the Valais court said: "According to applicable law, the dispute does not have sufficiently close links with the canton of Valais to have a basis of jurisdiction with the local judicial authorities Valais. The measures sought by the applicant were exclusively against UEFA, who have headquarters in Nyon."

So Celtic now have their place in the Europa League group stages and have travelled to Madrid to play Atletico on Thursday night.

Sion now have the right to appeal the decision but it looks to be over for them, How would Uefa handle it if they were to be reinstated considering group games will take place later?

Good luck to Celtic tonight as they are Scotlands only representatives.
