Record Fine for Celtic

GLASGOW, Scotland () -- The Celtic soccer club has been fined a Scottish League record ?100,000 ($150,000) for "illegal inducement" of manager Tommy Burns from league rival Kilmarnock.


"The League Management Committee has considered a claim by Kilmarnock alleging illegal inducement by Celtic," Scottish League secretary Peter Donald said Thursday.


Burns had two years to run on his contract as player-manager at Kilmarnock when he left on July 11 to succeed Lou Macari at Celtic.
