Ranieri raged at referee Gianluca Rocchi at half-time over Joel Obi's sending off for a second yellow card.

Television replays showed the Nigerian's first yellow was given for a good tackle while his second, which resulted in a penalty, was for a foul that happened outside the box.

Obi also picked up a one match ban, while Inter players Ivan Cordoba and Diego Milito were fined 10,000 euros each and captain Javier Zanetti 1,500 euros for remarks they made to Rocchi.
