ROMA are on high alert after death threats aimed at their players were left by the Coliseum alongside hanging effigies of three players.
A dismal 3-1 defeat in the derby on Sunday has left fans irate.
And they have shown their anger by leaving a shocking outside Rome’s most famous monument last night, which read, “A warning, without offence… sleep with the lights on!”, a phrase which rhymes in Italian.

The sign was accompanied with four effigies in Roma shirt, hanging by a rope tied around their necks.
Three were draped in Daniele De Rossi, Radja Nainggolan and Mohamed Salah shirts — while the other appeared to have no shirt on.
The effigies were taken down shortly after 1am local time, but the banner took a little longer to remove.
The incident will no doubt have concerned the Roma players.
It is unclear whether it was definitely Giaollorossi fans, or even Lazio supporters.
The three players singled out are among the club’s most iconic.
So it is also unclear whether the message was aimed directly at them, or they are being used as symbols for the whole team.
It is particularly unfair on De Rossi, who has spent his entire career with the club — despite lucrative offers elsewhere.
Roma were poor as they lost at “home” to their city rivals, effectively ending their title challenge.
The defeat comes just weeks after Lazio also knocked them out of the Coppa Italia at the semi-final stage.
