In a statement, UEFA punished Hibs for “Setting of fireworks – Art. 16 (2) DR; Throwing of objects – Art. 16 (2) DR; Insufficient organization (no stewards with away supporters) – Art. 24 (2) of the UEFA Safety and Security Regulations.”

The Evening News understands that Hibs will not contest the ruling.
