UEFA have fined Montpellier 17,000 euros and banned coach Rene Girard for one game after their match against Schalke last week.

The Ligue 1 side’s fans made a nuisance of themselves during the 2-2 Champions League draw in Gelsenkirchen, setting off fireworks and throwing missiles onto the pitch.

Montpellier had five players booked during the game, while Girard was involved in an altercation with Schalke coach Huub Stevens.

“Montpellier have been fined 17,000 euros for the throwing of missiles and fireworks by their fans, and for the improper conduct of the team (five cards or more),” UEFA said in a statement.

“The French club’s coach Rene Girard has been given a 5,000 euro fine for improper conduct and suspended from carrying out his function for the next two UEFA competition matches. The ban for the second match is suspended for a probationary period of three years.”

An appeal may be lodged against the decision within three days of receipt of the written grounds for the decision.
