Portugal manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has been given a four-match touchline ban by UEFA for lashing out at Ivica Dragutinovic during the Euro 2008 qualifier with Serbia.

The punishment has been handed out by UEFA´s disciplinary committee and effectively keeps Scolari off the bench for the remainder of Portugal´s qualification campaign.

A statement released by UEFA read: "The verdict means that Scolari will be banned from exercising his function as coach for the Euro qualifiers in Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan in October, and at home against Armenia and Finland in November."
