UEFA take disciplinary action against Shkendija


Europe’s governing body, UEFA, have opened up disciplinary proceedings against Shkendija after Aberdeen keeper Danny Ward was targeted with a laser pointer during last week’s Europa League game in Skopje.

Aberdeen lodged a official complaint following the first leg tie which finished in a 1-1 draw.

In a statement, UEFA said: “Disciplinary proceedings have been opened against Shkendija for use of a laser pointer – Article 16 (2) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations.

“This case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control Ethics and Disciplinary body on its next meeting on 23 July.”

Shkendija travel to Aberdeen on Thursday for the second leg, with the Dons having the benefit of the away goal.

Niall McGinn put Derek McInnes’ side in front with 12 minutes remaining in the second half, but a Hristijan Kirovski header leveled the scores.
