UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Celtic for crowd disturbances by their supporters during the Champions League match against Manchester City.

The Scottish champions face charges from European football's governing body for setting off fireworks and "crowd disturbances" at the Etihad Stadium.

The game, a dead rubber with City already assured of qualification for the knock-out stages and Celtic unable to advance, finished 1-1.

This case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on February 23, 2017.

Australia international Rogic scored a wonderful opener after 16 minutes to put the league leaders in front before man of the match Forrest doubled the Hoops' advantage before the half-time break.

Moussa Dembele added a third from the penalty spot after Anthony O'Connor brought down Forrest as Celtic wrapped up their landmark major trophy to the delight of the two influential midfielders.

Rogic said on BT Sport: "I think the fans deserve it, we deserve it as the playing squad because we have worked hard all season - it's no less than we deserve.

"We won 3-0 but it's not easy against Aberdeen. They have pushed us very close in the last few years but I feel this season we have gone up a level, but there are days like this that you enjoy playing football."

Forrest said: "We are absolutely delighted, we have done brilliantly to get to the final and obviously winning it is tremendous and we are going to enjoy it.

"I thought we were really strong in the first half - we started really well and that set us off for the game and I am delighted we managed to win it.

"We are absolutely delighted to win another trophy for this club and buzzing to have won it."

Celtic forward Scott Sinclair is still hopeful of playing for England one day after reviving his career in Scotland.

Sinclair's career stalled in the Premier League with Manchester City and Aston Villa, but now he believes his form under Brendan Rodgers could convince onlookers to call him up.

When my time is right, it will come but at the moment I'm concentrating on playing week by week. If I can get into England that would be great but my ambitions are still to play for my country.

I'm playing every week and scoring goals and getting back to form and I'm just enjoying my football again. That was the main reason for me coming here and I haven't looked back since.

It's a start, it's still a long season. The main thing is keeping going. I won't be getting complacent. I have had a lot of experience of playing and not playing.

I have been round football for what seems a long time. I definitely won't get complacent. I always work hard and I always do extra and I'm always trying to better myself.
