London, Aug 12 IANS | 2 months ago

Polish football club Legia Warsaw has vowed to take its appeal against its Champions League ouster to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in Switzerland should UEFA reject their plea.


Legia beat Celtic 6-1 over two legs in the UEFA third qualifying round but were then punished for fielding the ineligible Bartosz Bereszynski and thrown out of the competition, according to Daily Mail.

That result was then replaced by a 3-0 win for Celtic in accordance with UEFA regulations.

The Polish club's appeal will be heard by UEFA Wednesday with a decision expected on Thursday or Friday.

Legia are hoping their punishment would be "scaled down" or "nullified".

The situation took an even uglier term when news came out Monday that Marta Ostrowska, blamed for making the administrative error which led to Legia being booted out, has received death threats from her club's own fans.

"There have been occasions where someone called the club and asked for my address," Ostrowska was quoted as saying by Daily Record.

"There have been threats. I've been told it would be better for me and my family to spend a few days outside of Warsaw."
