Celtic were held to a 1-1 draw by AEK Athens in the first leg of their Champions League qualifying fixture, even with the Greek side playing most of the second half with 10 men.

Although it was a disappointing result for the Hoops, those watching the game were also witness to a bizarre incident that unfolded in the 53rd minute as Celtic players surged forward in search of the winning goal.

A clearance made by one of Athens’ defenders fell in the path of Olivier Ntcham, who was just about to take a shot; when he stepped on a spray can which the referee had unknowingly dropped. It was one of the weirdest things ever seen on a football pitch as the can exploded, spurting foam all around.

To his credit though, Ntcham was the first to regain his composure and even pulled off an attempt on goal after the incident.

Check out the bizarre moment below:

  1. Should Celtic fine UEFA for bringing a dangerous canister into a football ground by a person associated with them
    20,000 Euros seems like a good starting point for a first offence and a warning about their future conduct.
