United receive fine for crowd trouble

Dundee United have received a £13,500 fine for crowd disturbances and a pitch invasion during their Europa League tie against Dinamo Moscow in August.

The club have already stated they will not be appealing against the decision made by UEFA after supporters clashed early into the game. Three fans were later arrested and seven ejected from the stadium.

"It is extremely disappointing that the actions of a few individuals have imposed this financial penalty," United chairman Stephen Thompson told BBC Scotland. "We are working alongside Tayside Police to identify the individuals involved in the crowd disturbance,"

The first game ended 2-2 at Tannadice before the Russians comprehensively prevailed 5-0 in the return.
