Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier is facing UEFA sanctions for insulting a Champions League referee on social media.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel meets Thursday to judge a charge against Aurier of "insulting acts."

Aurier posted a video on Facebook last Wednesday after PSG eliminated Chelsea in the Round of 16.

The 22-year-old Ivory Coast international appeared to insult Netherlands referee Bjorn Kuipers, who sent off PSG forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the first half at Stamford Bridge.

PSG drew 2-2 after extra time, levelling the series at 3-3 to advance on the away goals rule.

Aurier is injured and did not play in the match.
