    A Real Betis fan has been found guilty of throwing a bottle at former Sevilla coach Juande Ramos and knocking him unconscious during a Copa del Rey match last season.

    The 31-year-old was fined $7,066 and was ordered to pay Ramos, who is now coach at Tottenham, $544 in compensation.

    The man, who was not identified, also received a two-year ban from all public sporting events.

    Ramos was hit by the bottle at Real Betis' Manuel Ruiz de Lopera stadium exactly a year ago Thursday after Sevilla had taken a 1-0 lead in the 59th-minute of a Copa del Rey match.

    The coach, who stumbled before falling to the ground, was carried off on a stretcher but regained consciousness later.

    The derby match was abandoned soon afterward and Betis received a three-match home ban.
