UEFA has slammed a €50,000 fine on Turkish clubside, Galatasaray following their crowd disturbance during their Champions League match to Arsenal at the Emirate stadium.

The Gunners defeated the Turkish side 4-1 in London on October 1 in a fixture that was interrupted by flares being thrown onto the pitch.

Galatasay fans destroyed the chairs in the away section of the ground, with the club having been ordered to contact Arsenal within 30 days in order to settle the cost of the damage.

UEFA also blamed Arsenal for inadequate organisation which resulted into lack of body searches before the fans were allowed access into the stadium.

However UEFA will not punish Arsenal after they opted to close the disciplinary proceedings against them.
