Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini has been given a one-game ban after he made an insulting gesture during Sunday's Milan derby defeat.

The ex-Manchester City manager was dismissed for dissent as Inter lost 3-0 to fierce rivals AC Milan in Serie A.

Mancini was upset his side was not awarded a penalty after a challenge between Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and Inter striker Eder.

The 51-year-old has also been fined 5,000 euros (£3,782).

Serie A's disciplinary tribunal said on Monday that Mancini "made a derogatory remark to the fourth official when he was removed and then addressed the spectators with an insulting gesture".

He also used offensive language towards a television presenter during an interview after the match but that issue was not mentioned in the tribunal's report.

Mancini will now watch from the stands when Inter host Chievo on Wednesday.

Inter, who failed to qualify for Europe, have not won any of their past four league games and are in danger of ending the season without silverware.

They are fourth in the Serie A table, nine points behind leaders Napoli with 16 games remaining.

Inter also trail Juventus 3-0 after the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.
