Celtic fan dies after being hit by taxi in Milan

A Celtic fan has died after being hit by a Milan taxi ahead of Wednesday's Champions League match at AC Milan.

The Scottish supporter was crossing the busy Via Santa Sofia close to Milan's Duomo Cathedral when the taxi, which was carrying a passenger, ran him over late Tuesday, police in the northern Italian city said Wednesday.

The man was immediately taken to Niguarda Hospital, where he died at about 1 a.m. (0000 GMT) Wednesday, the hospital said.

No other information was immediately available, reports AP.

Celtic played AC Milan in the first knockout round of the Champions League later Wednesday, two weeks after the teams drew 0-0 in the first leg.
