PAUL GASCOIGNE was yesterday banned for one match after being sent off in Lazio's game at Genoa last Sunday.

Gascoigne will miss the Serie A trip to Parma this Sunday - but will be available for Lazio's important home game with the leaders, Milan, on 14 March.

Mario Pennacchia, the Lazio spokesman, said: 'The punishment has been decided. He has been given a one-match ban.' Gascoigne was dismissed for the first time in two years at the Luigi Ferraris stadium after a fracas with the Genoa defender, Mario Bortolazzi.
