UEFA has fined the Scottish Football Association 20,000 euros (£14,353) following several incidents during the Euro 2016 qualifier with Poland at Hampden Park earlier this month.

A number of flares were set alight in the away section of the stadium and a supporter encroached on to the pitch and delayed the match on October 8, which finished 2-2, before being led away by stewards.

The Scottish FA was also charged with insufficient organisation with regards to the lack of body searches of supporters, as well as blocked stairways, and consequently fined by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB).

The Polish FA has been fined 40,000 euros (£28,707) for its fans setting off and throwing fireworks, throwing objects and fighting with stewards.

The 2-2 draw at Hampden Park ended Scotland's hopes of qualifying for next summer's tournament in France, with Gordon Strachan's side eventually finishing fourth in their group.

Republic of Ireland took third place, and could join Germany and Poland at Euro 2016 if they win their playoff tie against Bosnia & Herzegovina in November.
