(Reuters) - Ajax Amsterdam have been fined after their supporters displayed "an offensive banner" during the home Champions League match against Celtic last week, European soccer's governing body UEFA said on Tuesday.

The Dutch club must pay 25,000 euros ($33,600) for what UEFA's disciplinary committee described as "improper conduct of their supporters."
