Suarez lands another ban; Soccer Shorts.

LUIS SUAREZ has been hit with a one-match ban and fined pounds 20,000 for a gesture he made to Fulham fans earlier this month.

The Uruguay striker's club Liverpool have also been fined pounds 20,000 for failing to control their players in the same match.

Yesterday's ruling by the FA follows an eight-game ban dished out to Suarez last week for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.

Reds midfielder Jay Spearing was sent off in the Fulham clash on December 5, leading to protests by a handful of Liverpool players.

Suarez - who admitted improper conduct - was pictured apparently gesturing with one finger.

The Liverpool star will now miss tomorrow's clash at home to Newcastle.

ATHE Dutch FA have ruled the abandoned KNVB Cup tie between Ajax and AZ Alkmaar will be replayed on January 19 behind closed doors.

ASTEVEN FLETCHER has been labelled priceless by Wolves' boss Mick McCarthy after the Scotland striker's seventh goal of the season earned a crucial point in Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Arsenal.

McCarthy said: "Can you put a price on that?" The strike also ensured Fletcher is the Premier League's 'head boy', having headed 10 goals since the start of the 2010-11 season.

AJOHN McGLYNN is keen to keep on-loan Hearts stars beyond January with Danny Thomson, Denis Prychynenko, Jamie Walker, David Smith and Jason Holt all featuring for Raith recently. But McGlynn said: "We have to wait and see what Hearts want to do."
