Lazio: Fans hold a banner directed at Tottenham fans in November's game

Lazio have been told that they will have to play a European match behind closed doors if there is a repeat of their fans' racist behaviour - though that punishment has been suspended for a "probationary period of two years."

Spurs' fine came for what UEFA only described as "crowd disturbances."

Lazio were fined £77,000 for racist abuse during the home game with Spurs on 22 November last year.

In addition the Rome club were fined £42,000 for the "racist conduct of their supporters, ignition of fireworks and incidents of a non-sporting nature" during the match at Maribor in Slovenia the same competition on 6 December.

Maribor were fined £14,000 for the behaviour of their fans and for poor organisation.

All three clubs have three days to appeal.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
