Liverpool's Suarez hit with another FA ban and fine

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has been banned and fine by the Football Association for the second time in a matter of weeks.

The Uruguayan has been hit with a one-match suspension and £20,000 fine and been warned of future behavior after being found guilty of making an obscene gesture to Fulham fans.

Suarez made a one-fingered motion towards home fans at Craven Cottage on December 5 and the FA have decided to again punish him following the eight-match ban and hefty fine he received for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.

"Liverpool player Luis Suarez will begin a one-match suspension with immediate effect after he admitted an FA charge of improper conduct in relation to the same game," read a statement on the FA's official website.

"Suarez was also fined £20,000 and warned as to his future conduct following a gesture he made towards the Fulham fans at the end of the fixture."
