Boris Johnson broke the news at Prime Minister’s Questions, and told SNP MP NICOLA Sturgeon said she has “no intention of going anywhere right now” when asked about the future of her political career. In an interview with the BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg yesterday, Sturgeon – who has been First Minister since 2014 – accused her opponents of “crossing their fingers and hoping I’ll remove myself from office”. Rumours circulated about when Alan Brown that the cash for the Orkney-based tidal energy project would come in the next round of funding for renewables. SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford said: “The minimum required was a ring-fenced fund of at least £71million.” the First Minister might leave politics after she said that she and her husband – SNP chief executive Peter Murrell – may foster children in the future in an interview with Vogue magazine last month. But when asked if she can guarantee that she will lead the SNP in the next Holyrood election, Sturgeon replied: “I will fulfil the mandate I have been given to govern BaN Stella Creasy and son Speaker wants review on babies in the Commons THe Commons Speaker has requested a review into whether MPs can take babies into the chamber amid an outcry over Labour’s Stella Creasy being told she can no longer have her three-month-old son with her. Sir Lindsay Hoyle, who as First Minister for this term of the Scottish Parliament, I will set out my intentions. “It’s almost as if my opponents can’t beat me, or remove me from office themselves, so they are kind of crossing their fingers in hoping I’ll remove myself from office. “But they are going to be disappointed because I am going to be around a lot longer... a lot longer than they might wish me to be.” MP’s vow after salMond snaP I have no intention of defecting to Alba By ToRcUil cRichToN Westminster editor Joanna Cherry has insisted she has no plans to join alex Salmond’s alba Party after the former first minister published a picture of himself with the SnP MP. Salmond last night shared a festive image on social media of the Edinburgh South West MP flanked by himself and Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, who is a leading figure in Alba. The picture in front of a Christmas tree – in what appears to be the foyer of a London hotel – was captioned with a paraphrased verse from Robert Burns: “Women and men o’ independent mind…” The tweet prompted speculation on social media that Cherry could become another high-profile defector from the SNP to Alba. But the QC stamped out the flames yesterday morning. She told the Daily Record: “I have no intention of defecting to Alba. I was elected as an SNP MP and intend to continue as one.” Cherry is one of the few leading SNP MPs to back demands for an alternative path to an early referendum and thinks that a legal challenge to the Conservative Government’s refusal to grant powers for a vote can be mounted. As a QC she was one of the driving forces behind the successful feSTiVe iMage Alex Salmond, Joanna Cherry and Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh SNP’s Cherry denies switch rumour after posing with rival party leader challenge to Boris Johnson’s move to close down parliament during the Brexit debate and has become a respected Commons voice since being elected in 2015. But she has found herself isolated from the SNP leadership because of her support for Salmond and was dropped by Ian Blackford from the Westminster front bench. She has also been attacked by activists over her feminist stance in the trans rights debate which has polarised opinion in the SNP. Salmond failed to make a breakthrough in the Scottish Parliament elections with his new party, but the former SNP leader has said that the Alba Party, which wants an immediate independence ballot, will stand in local government elections next year. UNDeR fiRe Johnson Johnson mocked BORIS Johnson has been mocked for “clinging on” to power as Tory MPs lose faith in his leadership. SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford called on the Tory leader to say if he had “considered quitting before he’s pushed out the door” as Johnson faced another pounding at Prime Minister’s Questions. With Labour’s Keir Starmer accusing Johnson of breaking promises on social care in england, Blackford drove home the attack on the destabilised PM by highlighting reports that Tory MPs are writing letters demanding a leadership contest. accepted the ban “correctly reflects the current rules”, stressed it is “extremely important” that parents can fully participate in parliamentary work as he asked the Procedure Committee to bring forward recommendations for the House to make a ruling.

Too many have risked their lives in this dangerous stretch of water this year alone. No one other than the desperate pays thousands of pounds to board a flimsy craft in the middle of winter without a life jacket. Those fleeing persecution or simply looking for a better life are not the ones to be blamed. People traffickers are now using an alternative to hiding their human cargo in container lorries and ferries. Callous crooks, who should be pursued internationally with the full force of the law, are behind the vile trade. But the UK Government’s hostile environment, which makes it difficult for families to reunite or for people to pursue safe, legal asylum routes to Britain, also needs to be re-examined. Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Priti Patel last night spoke of how the tragedy shows the hazards of crossing the English Channel. They didn’t mention the dangers of pandering to the most xenophobic elements of their own party. Patel previously proposed blocking boats as they entered UK waters. A ridiculous suggestion that would risk even more lives. For too long, migrants have been demonised instead of being seen as what they are – human beings needing help. Restoration job The NHS buckled under the strain of Covid but did not break. The dedication of staff and the wholesale co-operation of the population kept the health care system from keeling over. But the cost was thousands of delayed procedures and operations. An injection of fresh funding is welcome to tackle the backlog but Health Secretary Humza Yousaf and the Scottish Government have to do more to get the NHS back on its feet. The devastating effect of the pandemic is going to be felt across society and the economy for years to come, with the mental health and educational consequences still to fully play out. Yousaf said the Scottish Government will “leave no stone unturned to do everything we can to improve the situation”. Ministers must be held to that commitment and judged accordingly if they fail. The NHS is literally vital to the health of our nation. Whatever it takes to restore its performance to meet the needs of the population must be done. There can be no more important task for this administration. recovery to take years – page 9 migrant crisis: horror deadly French cops watch on as desperate families load kids on a boat for a perilous crossing to Britain... hours later 31 dead bodies are found at sea GREETING Border Force welcome people MIGRANTS can be seen dragging a huge inflatable across the beach to the sea, with French police watching from a pick-up as children are loaded on to the boat for the perilous Channel crossing. The two officers did nothing to stop the dinghy setting off near the town of Wimereux just after 8am. Mercifully, six-and-a-half hours later, it arrived on the coast near Dover, where Border Force officials were there to help. The group survived the journey – but 31 other desperate migrants, including five women and a young girl, died attempting the same crossing. French interior minister Gerald Darmanin described the victims’ vessel as “very frail, like a pool you blow up in your garden”. French president Emmanuel Macron called for an emergency meeting of European ministers, as he vowed: “France will not let the Channel become a cemetery.” The scale of the tragedy unfolded by TOM PARRY in the afternoon when fishermen out at sea, 10 miles north of Calais, spotted bodies floating in the waves. By evening, French Coast Guard and Navy vessels had retrieved 31 bodies, and two survivors, with boats and helicopters searching for more. Six people had been seen alive in the water. The British Coast Guard was helping the operation and, with more than 20 boats setting out yesterday, officials fear other vessels could have sunk too. Four suspected traffickers were arrested and Dunkirk prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation for manslaughter and “assistance with illegal immigration”. Gangs have been charging refugees more than £3000 for passage in inflatable dinghies, with life jackets of little use in the treacherous currents and freezing temperatures of the Channel.

He said: “There are no words strong enough to describe the criminality of the smugglers.” Before yesterday’s tragedy, 14 people had died on the crossing this year. More than 4000 migrants have made the journey in November alone, the most ever in a single month. The total for the year so far is more than 25,000, compared with 8000 in 2020, and 1000 in 2019. Britain pledged to give France £54million to stop the crossings but last night Boris Johnson, who chaired a Cobra meeting on the crisis, offered more support. He said: “The operation being conducted by our friends on the beaches, supported with £54million from the UK to help patrol the beaches, the technical support we’ve been giving, they haven’t been enough. Our offer is to increase our support and to work with our partners on the beaches concerned, on the launching grounds for these boats.” He said smugglers had to be shown “they can’t simply get people over the Channel” or they would continue to “get away with murder”. France has refused to let UK officers work on the other side of the Channel to detect people-smuggling operations. The two officers seen at the beach near Wimereux appeared powerless to stop the boat with around 40 families on board. The police truck flashed its lights and circled the migrants but soon gave up and PERIL Tot is taken to a dinghy in France went to patrol another area of beach. Home Secretary Priti Patel tweeted: “This Government’s New Plan for Immigration will overhaul our broken asylum system and address many of the long-standing pull factors encouraging migrants to make the perilous journey.” But the Government is under pressure to offer safe asylum routes. Labour leader Keir Starmer tweeted: “The UK Government, France and the wider international community have a duty to prevent people being forced into such peril.” Robina Qureshi, of Scottish charity Positive Action in Housing, said: “Instead of finding a humanitarian answer, they have stopped rescue missions and sounded dog whistles to the far right. “The more that governments try to stop refugees arriving, the more they fuel the human trafficking trade.” Scottish Health Secretary Humza Yousaf tweeted: “As Home Sect continues to put up barriers for safe passage to claim asylum, which every person has a right to, she is driving them into the hands of smugglers. Shameful.” Dinghy lands in UK on beach near to Dover

Steve Clarke’s side will find out tomorrow who they face in the semifinal next March when the draw is made in Zurich at 4pm. The men’s national team have won their last six matches in a row thanks to a string of sensational performances and are now just two games away from an appearance at the World Cup finals for the first time since 1998. But an existing broadcast deal between the SFA and Sky Sports means thousands of fans could miss out on watching the action unless they pay to join the subscription service. Ian Blackford, the SNP’s Westminster leader, believes a game of such significance should be free to view and has written to the TV giant to make the case. Sky previously agreed to make the Euro 2020 play-off between Scotland and Serbia in November last year freely available on one of its channels – but that was at a time when pubs nighT To ReMeMbeR Sky allowed Scotland’s win over Serbia to qualify for the Euros to be shown for free.

The Record understands the SFA is in discussions over how to make the World Cup play-off as accessible to view as possible but nothing has been agreed at this stage. In a letter to Sky Sports managing director Jonathan Licht, Blackford and SNP sport spokesman Gavin Newlands argue that making the “We are therefore proposing that these play-off matches involving the Scottish team – both the semi-finals and final – are made available free to air on one of your television platforms. “This would ensure that every Scotland fan has the chance to watch these crucial matches without the need to pay a subscription fee. “Households are already in terms of broadcasting this major sporting event. Such a decision would naturally be met with the gratitude of Scottish fans and generate invaluable positive publicity.” Tartan Army legend Ted Christopher has backed the call.

The situation is made worse as a deal between England and ITV means qualifying games involving the Auld Enemy are routinely shown on STV. Scotland are guaranteed a home tie in the play-off semifinal after the recent 2-0 win over Denmark meant Clarke’s side will be seeded in tomorrow’s draw. A spokesman for Sky said: “We are a few months away from a potentially decisive qualification fixture.”

But that’s not the sort of world that we live in now when you have broadcasters like Sky and BT Sports who have all the money. It’s still very galling for fans on the night of a Scotland game when their game is on satellite, while STV is showing the England game – it’s like they don’t know what the ‘S’ stands for. Again, that’s down to contracts. I’m sure, if they could help it, STV would bid for some of the Scotland games. The bottom line for me is that Sky were able to show the game against Serbia freeto-air. It sounds awfully dismissive now, as if we’re suddenly gallus, but that was only the European Championships. This is the World Cup we’re talking about. The biggie. We’re comparing the Champions League to the Europa League, or the coWaN’S cHRoNicleS PAGES 18&19 Scottish Cup to the League Cup. Obviously there is going to be demand to see the play-off, irrespective of who Scotland gets drawn against. We’ll be hoping this points us towards our first World Cup finals since 1998, a whole generation and a bit ago. I don’t see how that would be a problem for Sky Sports. Perhaps if the SNP gently reminded them how much money Sky puts into English football compared to Scottish football, they could ask them to do us a turn and stick the Scotland game on free of charge. Of course, I am duty bound to remind everybody the whole game will be broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland. Nobody will miss out as long as you’ve got a tranny.

Rapist jailer is caged for fake date attacks He claimed to be a student called Claire to target men he met online predator Garry McDonald pretended to be a student called Claire to lure young men A FORMER prison officer was jailed for 10 years yesterday for posing as a woman online to lure men into sex attacks. Garry McDonald raped two victims after setting up a fake profile on a dating forum and pretending to be a teenage university student called Claire. McDonald, 42, formerly of Falkirk, was found guilty of five offences – two of rape and three of sexual communications. The first victim, now 26, told police he has learning difficulties and memory problems. He said he had met what he was told was a woman who was about his age online and they began texting. He travelled from his home in Fife to meet at an Asda in Falkirk but when he turned up he was approached by a man in his 40s who told him he was the person on the website. The victim said: “I think I was shocked. I didn’t know what to do. The panic started to set in.” The man told him they were going back to his place, leaving him feeling uncomfortable. He said he did not want to have sex with the man but was told he would be I didn’t know what to do.

I didn’t want to do it,” At McDonald’s address, he was told to take his clothes off and was pushed on to a bed where he was raped. It happened on February 23, 2019, and the second attack took place on May 16 that year. The second man, aged 24, was also in contact with “Claire”, who held out the prospect of a sexual relationship on condition that he have sex with a man. McDonald turned up at his home and raped him after telling him “Claire” would be unhappy if he did not comply with his instructions. The man said: “He kept saying, ‘Claire won’t be happy if you don’t do it’. I said, ‘I don’t want to do it.’” Asked what was said when it finished, he replied: “Claire would be happy.” Jailing McDonald at the High Court in Edinburgh, Lord Boyd of Duncansby said it was clear that he posed a considerable risk to society. Shop manager McDonald was previously jailed for 54 months for taking drugs into Addiewell jail in West Lothian when he was a prison officer.

John-Paul Marks landed the extra payments on top of a massive six-figure salary. Labour MSP Pam Duncan-Glancy said: “This appointment raises serious questions about the SNP’s vision for social security in Scotland. “It is bad enough that they’ve spent years paying the DWP to deliver the benefits they have powers over, and now they are poaching their staff.” Marks was unveiled last week as the SNP Government’s new Permanent Secretary and could earn up to £180,000 a year. The appointment was made by First by paul Hutcheon Political Editor Minister Nicola Sturgeon, with the agreement of UK Cabinet Secretary Simon Case, and he starts in January. Marks is director general at the UK Government’s DWP, which is notorious for pushing through Tory benefits cuts such as the £20-a-week reduction in Universal Credit.

The event celebrated the best of Scottish live music with awards presented to Amy McDonald, Biffy Clyro, The Fratellis, and KT Tunstall among others. This was the third consecutive year Specsavers has been headline sponsor, and it’s not just celebrating Scottish music that encourages the opticians and audiologists to support the awards. Now more than ever, it was important to continue to support the fantastic work of Nordoff Robbins. The pandemic had a massive impact on so many sectors, particularly live music and charities like Nordoff Robbins which have found it incredibly difficult to fundraise and have had to find innovative ways to encourage donations. Specsavers also had to adapt during the first lockdown when staff were only able to see emergencies, with many stores across Scotland offering eye and hearing advice via video calls. The opticians and audiologists subsequently had to implement social distancing and hygiene measures to make sure stores are as safe as possible for customers and staff and have been proud to support the communities in which they serve. In spite of the pandemic, Specsavers stores across Scotland, plus its audiology and Home Visits services, have banded together to raise an incredible £15,000 for Nordoff Robbins. The funds will cover the cost of more than 600 music therapy sessions in Scotland. Four organisations Nordoff Robbins works with will benefit from the donation.

Susanne adds: “Not only were the BSL interpreters a huge talking point of the evening, it was really important to make sure the awards were accessible for anyone with a hearing impairment, especially as it reaches bigger audiences than ever now that the event is streamed online.”

The group also play Edinburgh and Glasgow next month. Woody admitted he doesn’t want to say Bye Bye Baby to the band he joined at 17, saying: “Bay City Rollers is like a drug. You just want to get back to it again. “That’s why I’m still doing it because the reunion was so much fun. And I’ll keep on being the Bay City Rollers for as long as possible.” The Bay City Rollers formed in Edinburgh in 1966 and debut album Rollin’ in 1974 hit No1. While they had a string of hits in the UK and US, including Bye Bye Baby and Shang-a-Lang, they never made a Christmas record. Woody said: “It’s been a tough time for Bay City Rollers fans and we decided to do the single to offer some Christmas cheer. “We’ve lost Les this year, last year we lost Ian Mitchell and Alan by rick fulton passed in 2018. It’s our duty to give our fans something to Shanga-Lang to. “People always used to ask why we never did a Christmas song. We just never got around to doing it.

Age brings wisdom so we’d have probably got back together. “He had reached out and said, ‘Let’s get back together but do it differently this time.’” The guitarist points out how happy the three were during the reunion shows – as the photo-book underlines. He said: “I just remember a lot of laughter in the band and a lot of fondness. With Al and Les not being here, it contains all the memories of all those great times. “We were worried before we went on at T in the Park because we weren’t sure any of the young people would turn up or they’d chuck stuff at us. But it was incredible. They were dancing and singing the words. Our tunes are loved by Scots down the generations.” Woody isn’t the last Roller from the classic line-up which includes original drummer Derek Longmuir and guitarist Eric Faulkner. Eric didn’t take part in the reunion as he’d nearly died in 2015 from viral encephalitis which led to post-encephalitic syndrome – a neuro-degenerative condition. Woody said: “I know Derek doesn’t want to do it again but for Eric, who’s played live since his illness, the door is always open. He’s more than welcome. “The last conversation we had was he wanted to get away from the Rollers and do his own thing.” Poignantly, Woody will include in the new set list Don’t Let The Music Die, a tune he wrote with Eric for 1977 album It’s A Game in tribute to his late bandmates. Les’s rock’n’ roll lifestyle reportedly led to his death but Woody was never a party animal. He said: “I was young when I joined the band and never started drinking until I was 20. In the early Rollers, the only pints I was having were pints of milk.” He added: “I reckon I’ve still got another 10 years of doing the Bay City Rollers and plan to be keeping the music alive.” After the reunion had crumbled Woody put together his own band, and since 2018 has been touring the world. Next year will see a new Rollers album – the first with new material since Breakout’85 in 1985. Woody reckons they have nine tracks, six of them strong, and some co-written with Les and Alan in the reunion. Woody, who now lives near his home town of Edinburgh after stints in Los Angeles and South Africa, is eyeing a busy 2022 with a new album, a tour and maybe a show at TRNSMT. He said: “The Rollers were great at T and would be great at TRNSMT. I see songs like Shanga-Lang being around for ever.” ● Bay City Rollers’ new single Rollin’ Into Christmas is out next Friday.

Hands up, I’m guilty as charged. Used to LOVE a stewed, tar-like cup of builder’s tea but I now prefer a flat white with an extra shot. But I haven’t forgotten my roots.

So, if you happen to bump into any of these creatures over the next few days, please don’t tell them the festive telly schedule includes two new episodes of Mrs Brown’s Boys… Ach, that’s unfair. The knockabout sitcom starring Brendan O’Carroll as Irish mammy Agnes Brown continually gets a kicking but I’d have to be utterly two-faced to say a bad word against it. You see, folks, a couple of years ago when I was feeling really unwell – and even my doctor couldn’t explain it – I tried the ancient Chinese practice of feng shui. That’s where you arrange your furniture in a certain way to create positive vibes… and it worked! The minute I heard the theme tune to Mrs Brown’s Boys, I turned our TV to face the wall – and I immediately felt much, much better… Talking of telly, a new series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here got under way on Sunday night. And earlier that day, I co-hosted an episode of Off The Ball which could have been called He’s A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. Yep, that’s how I felt when our guest Dougray Scott – the Hollywood film star and diehard Hibs fan – suddenly dropped the F-bomb. And on the Sabbath as well! Apologies were offered all round – it was just a wee slip of the tongue – and I never thought anything else about it. Well, not until later that night when I got a text from Jose Quitongo – the former Hamilton Accies and Hearts winger who went one better swearY Mrs Brown and Dougray Scott years ago by dropping the C-bomb!!! – saying: “Enjoyed the show today, Tam, but your guest’s language was appalling…” Anyway, on the subject of your backside making buttons – and staying with football – did any of you clock the truly bizarre survey that was published this week? It’s been revealed that West Ham fans trump their rivals by doing the most farts in the English Premier League with up to 12 per match.

And a shocked Mother Superior got her a new mattress that afternoon. After another five years, Sister Agnes was allowed another two words. “Food bad,” she said. And a horrified Mother Superior immediately hired a new chef. Five years on, Sister Agnes was granted another two words. “I quit,” she said. And Mother Superior said: “Aye, it’s probably for the best, you’ve done nothing but complain since you came in here…”

Bronte Hutchison was described as a “kind, beautiful, wholesome girl” as former Royal Navy serviceman Bret Simpson, 30, walked free from the High Court in Edinburgh following a not proven verdict. The 23-year-old was a passenger on Simpson’s Kawasaki motorbike when it crashed in Galashiels, in the Borders, more than three years ago. She died at the scene after sustaining a fatal head injury and Simpson was charged with causing her death by dangerous driving by reaching excessive speeds on the A6091 Galashiels to Melrose bypass on August 5, 2018. But a jury acquitted Simpson of the charge following a trial yesterday. A statement from kind Bronte Hutchison Bronte’s father John said her death had left him, mum Samantha and her sisters Rebecca, Megan and Macauley “scarred”. It said: “Bronte was a kind, beautiful, wholesome girl who everyone adored. “She had her whole life planned out with pure ambitions of securing a good job, a dream home, getting married and having children. “Her death has scarred us all and is something I don’t think we will ever fully come to terms with. “All we can do now is find a way to move forward as one and be there for each other.” The family did not comment on the verdict.

He said singer Freddie, who died 30 years ago yesterday aged 45 from complications linked to Aids, would have found the PC culture “difficult”. He said: “Freddie came from Zanzibar, he wasn’t British, he wasn’t white as such – nobody cares, nobody ever discussed it. “He was a musician, he was our friend, he was our brother.

Some of these things are an improvement, some of them are not.” He said there is now an “atmosphere of fear everywhere because people are afraid to say how they really think”.

The “utterly broken” 49-year-old was reportedly in the Middle East when Max Halliwell collapsed at home last week. Despite doctors’ best efforts, the 54-year-old passed away in hospital. A source said: “Geri barely knows what to say or think just by kirsten jones now – she loved him dearly.” Fans of Geri – who could reunite with the Spice Girls in 2023 – saw her brother in an episode of Piers Morgan’s Life Stories back in 2010. Max, who lived in Hertfordshire, told how he looked out for his sister during her teenage years. He told Morgan: “Geri used to disappear to these raves for a day or even longer.” Max was worried when the young Geri began to work as a glamour model. He said: “I remember being a little bit concerned, stroke slightly horrified, thinking, ‘Where’s this going to lead?’” Geri, Max and their sister Natalie grew up in a modest house in Watford with mum Ana and their dad Laurence, who died in 1993 of a heart attack while Geri was away.

Three-month-old’s neck left ‘red raw’ by clothing A mum has claimed a brand new Primark sleepsuit left her young baby with a painful friction burn on her neck. Chelsea Cumming bought the Minnie Mouse-style baby sleeping bag from the Livingston town centre branch last week and thought nothing of it when she put threemonth-old daughter Jayme in it for the first time. But the 31-year-old was horrified the next morning when she discovered her baby’s neck was “red raw” and looked as if she’d suffered a “rope burn”. Chelsea told the Daily Record: “She sleeps in the cot next to my bed.

She said: “Automatically, I assumed it was the sleep bag and I texted my family asking them what to do. “Then I did think it might be a milk rash but looked further into and it was bleeding a bit from the rubbing. I’ve had a milk rash on her before and it was nothing like that. “I phoned the GP and they were asking questions, assuming it was a milk rash as well, but then told me it sounds more like a friction burn and gave us advice on how to clean it and told me to keep an eye on it.” The mum said she frequently buys baby products from Primark and had never had a problem before. Chelsea raised the issue with Primark, who have since launched an urgent investigation into the product. She said: “I was really angry, it’s not something you’d expect from a high street brand like Primark. “They did email back within 24 hours and have apologised.” Chelsea warned other parents on social media after her ordeal, writing: “I don’t want it happening to anyone else.” A Primark spokesperson said: “We are really concerned to hear of this and we are in contact with the customer and urgently investigating. “We take the safety and the quality of all our products very seriously and all of our products are tested by an independent accredited third party to ensure they meet the relevant safety standards.”

I feel better when I read. I sleep better. “At night, if I’m not doing a food shop online, I often write the next day’s opening link, try to get a bit of content for the radio, and then I’ll fall into an Instagram hole and end up looking at Zoe Ball’s latest gardening antics or Fearne Cotton doing yoga – you know what I mean? “You start looking at stuff and then you’re swallowed up and it’s nearly 11, which for me is late. “If I read in bed, rather than looking at a screen, I also feel a bit smug. I’m like, ‘Well done, Saz, you distracted your little brain’, which can be like a flock of sparrows sometimes. But times are tough, as we’ve got Succession and The Morning Show.. so it’s a struggle.” Sara admitted she is “completely awe-struck by a good book” now she knows how much work is involved. She said: “I’ve always admired authors, to be able to grab you by the scruff of your neck and drag you into a story and keep you there is a real skill. And if anything, since writing more, I can find it quite intimidating reading some books and thinking, ‘Wow, this is incredible’.” The idea of hosting Between The Covers left her a little intimidated initially: “I was like, ‘Oh God, can I sit in a room with four other people who are all going to be smarter and better read than me?”’ in the end though, she thought, “’So what if they are?’ It really doesn’t matter.” Plus, that sense that something is going to “scare me a little” and “give me a bit of a fire in my belly” is something Sara has come to look for when choosing projects. Like the other ladettes, she’s found an oasis of calm in midlife. She said: “I’m not bothered about what will get me exposure, nelly aDDicT Sara spends as much time as possible with her horse Nelly it’s not really about that. I feel like I’ve found a really good home on BBC Two. I love the shows I do, and Love In The Countryside, that taps into my upbringing and with my dad being a farmer.” And she likes keeping a bit of live TV in the mix, as it’s “using a different bit of your brain” than writing and radio. “I’m really lucky, there’s a nice range of work I’m doing at the moment,” Sara said. “It feels like the golden years.” ● Watch Between The Covers with Sara Cox every Wednesday on BBC Two and iPlayer.

ACTORS’ UNION BOSS DEMANDS SEX RULES Give film pervs Equity red card Extra Special Wagyu sirloin steak £ 6 227g calling foR cHange Maureen spoke of on-set behaviour on Nicola Roy’s, left, podcast TV veteran Maureen says members bullied into dodgy bedroom scenes The Scottish boss of actors’ union equity has demanded tighter rules to prevent members being bullied into dodgy sex scenes. Maureen Beattie wants a dedicated mentor on every production to blow the whistle on anything untoward. Equity is stepping up demands for contractual obligations around sex scenes, bullying and harassment. Former Casualty star Beattie, 68, president of Equity in the UK, suggested there should be a nominated person on every production for actors to go to with concerns. The Glaswegian, only the second female president of Equity in its history, was involved in its “Safe Spaces” campaign, which launched in 2018 in the wake of the #MeToo movement. Beattie said there was ongoing resistance among “old-school” directors to the idea of having intimacy coordinators on set for sex scenes, preferring to put them on the spot instead. The actor, whose screen credits also include Outlander, Midsomer Murders We always knew the slimebags would crawl out maureen beattie on old-school directors by SaRaH WaRD reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk and Deadwater Fell, was interviewed by fellow actor Nicola Roy for her podcast The Cultural Coven. Asked what could be done to improve the safety of actors in rehearsal rooms and on sets, Beattie said: “We always knew the slimebags were going to crawl out from under their stones eventually. “They just ignored us and carried on behaving atrociously. “The one thing that’s really important is that it’s got to be embedded in our terms and conditions and contracts that they have to look after their workers from the point of view of heath and safety. “Part of that has to be making sure people are not bullied and harassed. “There is a movement in Equity to put a mentee scheme together. “I’d like to take it further so that in the rehearsal room on the first day, there’s someone that says, ‘If anybody has got anything happening or sees anything, I am the one responsible.’ Selected ASDA stores.

The Leighton Library in Dunblane was built in 1687 to house the collection of Bishop Robert Leighton, who donated his collection to the clergy of the town in 1684. Nearly 5000 books are in the collection – including a signed copy of Queen Victoria’s Highland Journal donated by the monarch and a first edition of Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations from 1776. It is now a Category-A listed ResToRaTion Leighton Library building of historical and architectural interest. The oldest purpose-built library in Britain is Chetham’s Library in Manchester, which was founded in 1653. The restoration is expected to cost about £390,000, of which £150,000 must be covered by donations from the public, and it is hoped that it will begin next year. Project lead Alastair MacDonald, 68, said: “We have made applications to various funding bodies for grants, including Historic Environment Scotland, but there still needs to be a considerable local fundraising effort, up to at least £150,000, to preserve this treasure for future generations. “We hope to work with neighbouring historic sites, such as the museum and the cathedral, both of whom get many more visitors than us, to promote the library and the wonderful Cross area of Dunblane.” 7 year warranty * You get incredible peace of mind with our 7 year warranty.

The £10million-a-year striker was given a one-year suspended term for helping four friends attempt to extort Mathieu Valbuena. Benzema, 33, was also fined £63,000 but he is to appeal the judgment. At a French training camp in 2015, he put pressure on Valbuena, 37, to pay off the blackmailers. Lawyers said Benzema had conspired with them to by tom parry act as an intermediary. He stayed away from Versailles Criminal Court yesterday ahead of Madrid’s Champions League game against Sheriff Tiraspol last night. Valbuena first lodged a formal complaint with police in June 2015 after being phoned by an unknown person about the sex tape.

Officers recovered 5.3million benzodiazepine pills in 2019-20 – more than twice the amount seized the previous year and the highest number in a six-year period. Most of the blue tablets were made up of etizolam, the synthetic substance linked to hundreds of Scotland’s drug deaths. A Drug Seizures and Offender Characteristics report also revealed the amount of heroin captured rose from 127kg to 225kg in a year. The Scottish DangeR Etizolam Government report showed etizolam was the second most seized drug after herbal cannabis. Etizolam had been regarded as a legal high but was criminalised in 2017 and it and other “street” benzos caused 879 deaths in 2020. The Scottish Drugs Forum called for a move to a more treatment-based approach. Its chief executive David Liddell said: “People are self-medicating for underlying mental health issues, often resulting from childhood trauma. “Services should be working to ensure mental health problems are addressed appropriately along with the drug problem.” The figures come after the Lord Advocate announced plans to divert people caught in possession of Class A drugs away from prosecution. Scots Tory Jamie Greene said: “Scotland’s streets and communities are awash with drugs.” The Scottish Government said: “We believe the best way to reduce harm is to get people into the appropriate treatment and support services.” all alone Staffie Tyro Mystery of stray dog AN APPEAL has been launched after a dog was found lying in the rain a long way from home.

Dear Coleen I SPLIT with my long-term partner about a year ago – we’d got into a rut and Covid lockdowns didn’t help. However, we met up recently and ended up in bed and it was obvious to us both that the sexual chemistry is still very much there. I’ve been quite miserable without him but have done my best to move on, although I haven’t met anyone else. Is it stupid to go back to a relationship and try again? My heart is saying yes, try again, but my head is nagging me to proceed with caution. I’d love any advice you can offer. Coleen says I THINK it’s important to really work out what the problems were in the relationship that made you split up. I think your head is right – proceed with caution. Don’t get into a routine of meeting up just to have sex, or move in together. Just start dating again and talk about what went wrong, and how it’s going to be different second time around. Sometimes relationships can be purely physical and that’s what keeps bringing you back together, but you need something more to sustain it long term. Trust your head – it’s not saying “no”, it’s saying be careful and take the situation slowly, and that’s a good way to proceed. problems? Sis-in-law wants to keep baby secret from its dad Dear Coleen MY husband’s sister recently told us she’s pregnant and planning to keep the baby and raise it on her own. She split with her long-term partner a few weeks ago and says there’s no going back and she doesn’t want any of us to tell him she’s expecting his baby. The thing is, her ex is a friend of ours and a really good guy as well. My sister-in-law is pretty high maintenance, intolerant and quick to judge people, and I think her ex was just too nice for her, or couldn’t meet her ridiculously high standards! He was devastated when they broke up – I think he always felt he was punching above his weight as she’s very pretty and glamorous – but he’s moved on and is doing OK. I don’t feel this news should be kept from him and I don’t know what to do about it. I don’t know whether my sister-in-law is planning to tell him at some point in the future but it’s going to be impossible to keep this a secret as we all have many mutual friends. What can I do about this ridiculous situation she’s created? you say “Thing is, her ex is a friend of ours and a really nice guy I’D like to respond to the lady who was annoyed that her husband bought her a pair of leather trousers (Dear Coleen, Nov 15). What a prude you are! I’m 56 and my husband bought me a pair last Christmas because he knew I’d look good in them, and I will still wear them in my 60s. Your husband gave you a huge compliment and you threw it back at him, so it’s no surprise he’s been subdued. Get them back from your daughter and ask her to help you style them to suit your age. I also don’t think his secretary has anything to do with it. Nickie, Belfast Coleen says I THINK you should try reasoning with her – she can’t keep a baby a secret and her ex has got a right to know it’s his. It’s also not fair to put that big a secret on all of his friends. If (or should I say, when) he finds out that all his friends knew about the baby except for him, he’ll feel betrayed by everyone. I don’t know why your sister-in-law would make this decision unless it was to hurt her ex, or if it’s about control. Perhaps things happened in the relationship that you don’t know about. Telling him doesn’t mean she has to have a romantic relationship with him but whether she likes it or not he is the baby’s father and she ought to want him to have a relationship with it. She should be thinking long term about how they can move forward sensibly and find a solution that works for everyone. But the break-up was quite recent and emotions are obviously still raw, so maybe she just needs some time to get used to the pregnancy herself and the idea of being a single mum. However, she should be the one to tell him and if she doesn’t, then she’ll have to accept that at some point someone else probably will. Girlfriend’s one-niGht stand is back stand and she’s being Dear Coleen honest with you now, so I I’VE been with my girlfriend for a couple of years and things are good. However, in our early days she slept with a colleague and we split up for a few weeks. She admitted what happened and explained that she wasn’t sure about us as the relationship was new but it made her realise she wanted me. So, we moved on think you should trust her. You can say, “If you choose to sleep with him again, there will be no coming back from it in terms of our relationship.” The difference now is that you’ve been together a couple of years, you have a proper relationship, you’re living together and you’re much more committed. and it’s all been going well, in charming and I can’t help feeling She’d be risking an awful fact we’re now living together. like I’m second best. lot by jumping into bed with her My problem is, this other guy Have you any advice? colleague and if she messes up has started working with her again, she is going to lose a again. She’s been upfront about it great guy. Coleen says and isn’t trying to hide anything She’s not trying to hide but I can’t help worrying. YOU’RE not second best – she anything from you, so have I don’t have anything against chose you but I think how you’re confidence in yourself, don’t him – he didn’t know we were together when they had their one-night stand – but he’s fit and feeling is completely normal. The good thing is, she was honest with you about the one-night constantly question her or talk about him, thereby making it into something bigger than it is.

Mel Giedroyc hosts as it draws to its conclusion, with Misti, Radha and Charlie all vying for the title. Alex De Rijke, who judges alongside Helen Welch, is even wearing a cork suit in honour of the Could it be Victoria Coren Mitchell’s reliability in always carrying snacks, or Alan Davies’s towelling bath robe or that time Desiree Burch ate sand?

Alex explains: “We all love being outdoors and yet we spend most of our time indoors. We want you to make a garden building.” The woodworkers have two working days to sand, carve and plane huge creations that would usually take professionals weeks. “I think it’s going to be intense,” says Charlie.

It’s becoming more and more popular, and there are good reasons why! Not 100% sure what craft beer is? It’s a beer that’s been brewed in a small independent brewery. Craft beer tends to be usually bolder, hoppier and sometimes has unusual flavours. The emphasis is always on flavour and quality. It tends to be served in smaller glasses or cans than ales and lagers do. This is because it usually has a higher ABV.

Here’s a little craft beer jargon dictionary of some of the most common terms: ABV - stands for ‘alcohol by volume’ which is a measurement of the alcohol content or strength as a percentage. Ales - beers fermented with top-fermenting yeast, they are typically fermented at warmer temperatures than lagers, and are often served warmer. Bitterness - in beer is caused by the tannins and hops. The amount of bitterness in a beer is one of the defining characteristics of a beer style. Body - the consistency, thickness and mouth-filling property of a beer. DDH - double dry-hopped, simply means using twice as many hops as you would normally use for the same beer. Dry Hopping - when hops are added late in the brewing process to increase the hop aroma of a finished beer without significantly affecting its bitterness. Hops - it’s a green cone-shaped flower of the Humulus lupulus plant. They give the beer a particular flavour and aroma. IPA - stands for India pale ale. This is a beer that was created in Britain and was then exported overseas. Its name is a result of its popularity with British troops stationed in India in the 19th century. Milkshake IPA - the use of lactose and fruit gives a smooth, delightful mouthfeel. NEIPA - a very popular style, a New England IPA has a tropical fruit hop aroma and flavour, dry hopped to the point of being hazy, smoother and less bitter than typical IPAs. Pale ale - a lightly hopped beer with low bitterness. Porter - a style of beer that was developed in London in the early 18th century, dark in appearance owing to the use of brown malt and popular with street and river porters. Session beer - typically lower-alcohol beer (under 5%). Sour - beer with an intentionally acidic or sour taste, and are often compared to NEIPAs with added tartness.

His draconian policy will strip many elderly people of their life savings and into extreme poverty – yet his Tory crony MPs, despite their usual bleating, went along with him like sheep. Stephen McCarthy, Glasgow A rubbish idea WHen are the local authorities going to realise that the more restrictions they put on wastesorting depots for public access @dailyrecord YesTerdaY we told how tributes had poured in for a young couple who were found dead in ardrossan. officers are treating the “sudden” deaths of sam roberts, 22, and Lauren Hetherington, 23, as “unexplained”. investigations are continuing into the incident and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal. Many readers shared heartfelt condolences on our social media channels. Flora Irvine wrote: “so heartbreaking, condolences to both families at this sad time.” Nicola Orr added: “still shocked at the news, Lauren. Thoughts are with your family and sam’s family. riP Lauren and sam.” Leanne Newman £50 TReaTMenT Families pay privately for cannabis oil Children deserve better WHiLE the Scottish Government’s gusto in trying to solve the dreadful drugs situation is laudable, it beggars belief that parents of children living with the threat of ongoing seizures have to pay privately for cannabis oil. Equally bemusing is the fact that private businesses are being subsidised to provide adequate ventilation systems while schoolchildren across Scotland are expected to sit in classrooms with coats on because the only ventilation is in the form of open windows. Unbelievable in 21st-century Scotland! So much for caring for our children. Hugh McKendrick. Kilwinning the more they will encourage fly-tipping which is now fast getting out of control? The message is very simple – make it easy for people to drop off their waste and there will be less fly-tipping to clear up. DFG, Aberdeen said: “Thoughts are with both families and all their friends and all who knew them, and their colleagues. riP both, fly high angels.” Yvonne Grayhurst wrote: “Thinking of both families at such a sad time.” Karen Baird added: “devastating heartbreaking for both families, thoughts and prayers with both families and friends.” PRIZE Eyes down to play our Prize Bingo card.

GJ also states that the vast majority have no recourse to this situation. Surely the majority must be voting for the proindependence parties, unlike when the vast majority voted to remain in the EU and their votes counted for nothing, and when they continually reject the Tories and end up being governed by them. Peter Krykant Sr, Maddiston, near Falkirk UNioNiSTS are always talking down the Scottish Government. i take it you prefer the Tory Government which Scotland never voted for. i take it you prefer to be dictated to by right-wing voters and politicians in England. Colin Weir, EK iN ThE summer, the Scottish Government announced that the surgical removal of mesh implants would be available to women “free” from specialists in America and England – however, initial assessments in Glasgow were taking up to two years. The Government’s history on waiting times has been a disaster over the years and women are being left in limbo.

Bust Bulb may cost us £500m tAXPAYERS ON HOOK FOR FAILURE THE collapse of Bulb Energy could end up costing taxpayers at least £500million, an industry expert has warned. Britain’s seventh biggest gas and electricity supplier failed this week, blaming a surge in wholesale costs and the Government’s energy price cap. Regulator Ofgem has applied to appoint City firm Teneo to take over Bulb’s running as “special administration”. If that goes ahead, the taxpayer will foot the bill for keeping the company going while Teneo tries to find a buyer, or offloads customers to rivals. Those costs are likely to include buying energy for Bulb’s 1.7million customers, potentially at a loss.

He also warned finding a buyer for Bulb “is not going to be a trivial task”. Ofgem says Bulb’s customers “need not worry”, with supply and prices remaining the same for now. Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng told the Commons: “We do not want this company to be in this temporary state longer than is necessary.” Shadow business secretary Ed Miliband said: “With so many companies going bust in just two months, something not happening anywhere else in the world, it points to a systemic failure of regulation.” LUXURY bag maker Mulberry saw half-year sales increase by a third to £65.7million as it emerged from the Covid crisis. But trade in the UK was hit by pandemic travel curbs that dented tourist spending. mAdE UP wItH REvOLUtION IN tHE US THE boss of beauty firm Revolution declared it a “British success story” after booming demand in the US helped drive a 39 per cent rise in half-year sales. The business, which sells make-up and other products online and through other retailers, gets more than a third of its revenue from overseas. “We are building this business into a beauty powerhouse,” said chief executive big WaiT Advent calendar Adam Minto. “We are a British success story.” Demand rebounded after Covid lockdown restrictions were eased, with sales hitting £78.6million during the six months to August 31. Despite an increase in production costs, Minto said: “We are not passing that on to customers at this time.” Big sellers include Revolution’s £32 advent calendar which had a 27,000-strong waiting list before it went on sale. up 19.6 at 7286.3 oil = $82.23 Smith & Nephew ..................1263.0 +13.0 Smiths WH .............................. 1514.0 -11.5 Stagecoach ................................75.1 +0.6 Standard Chartered ............452.3 -3.4 Taylor Wimpey ........................160.7 +2.8 Tesco ..........................................280.5 +0.7 Unilever .................................3908.5 +6.0 United Utilities ....................1082.0 +13.5 Vodafone ....................................117.8 +1.8 Whitbread ............................. 3024.0 +14.0 Reach PLC ..............................272.0 -7.0 Holiday £ Euro .........................................................1.163 Australian Dollar .............................. 1.798 Bulgarian Lev .....................................2.221 Canadian Dollar ............................... 1.644 Croatian Kuna ...................................8.543 Egyptian Pound ..................................18.12 New Zealand Dollar .........................1.866 Polish Zloty ........................................5.308 South African Rand .....................20.305 Swiss Franc ...........................................1.211 Thai Baht ..........................................42.554 Turkish Lira ......................................15.504 UAE Dirham .........................................4.746 US Dollar ..............................................1.308 graham.hiscott@mirror.co.uk @grahamhiscott 020 7293 3030

While my siblings wasted their time playing with dolls, eating ice cream and generally honing their skills for the Irritating Event at the soon to be held 1976 Montreal Olympics, I wandered off to watch the fascinating scenes at the local gamekeeper’s kennels. This row of timber and concrete structures held a myriad of labradors of three colours, a variety of cocker spaniels, one or two springer spaniels and a short-haired pointer who paced up and down the outside run relentlessly. Feeding time was a crazed cacophony of manic barking with the occasional, high-pitched spaniel “yip” thrown in for good measure. After dinner was over, a litter of labrador puppies was brought from a shed to join the throng and, as they battled each other for the grub that was laid out in a by neil mcintosh series of bowls, the gamekeeper would rattle tin utensils, clap his hands, shout and roar and bang a dustbin lid against the wall. Seeing me bemused, he explained that he wanted them to associate the different loud sounds with the pleasure of eating, so that they would not, in the future, be upset by gunfire. I recounted this to my mother, who took the message on board and our next pup (a black labrador, called Sam) was subjected to every sound and sensation that she could possibly think of. As a result, he remained bombproof to everything that happened thereafter. Fast forward half a century and I discovered that a survey, carried out for International Dog Day (why is there not an International Grumpy Old Vet Day?) found that four out of five dogs are afraid of or anxious of household appliances. Apparently, out of 1000 UK dog owners, 85 per cent said their dog displayed some type of fear and 21 per cent indicated that this resulted in behavioural issues, such as chewing, barking or attacking the appliance. Forty-five per cent of dogs disliked the vacuum cleaner, 24 per cent the hairdryer, 21 per cent the lawnmower, 15 per cent the washing machine and 13 per cent the blender. What is even more remarkable is that this survey comes at a time when many puppies have been reared with owners at home far more often due to Covid restrictions. It seems little thought, however, has been put into their socialisation. Or maybe they share my wife’s attitude to the vacuum cleaner, and only use it every six months or so.

The five-year-old stayed on the upgrade when chinned by Getalead at Warwick last week. The grey is nicely unexposed over 2m 3f so can go one better on the faster surface. MANINTHESHADOWS (12.15) ought to shade a trappy 2m 7f contest for Jonjo O’Neill at Lingfield. The six-year-old improved by garry owen again over timber when giving Uno Mas most problems at Ffos Las, with last month’s race working out pretty well. Charlie Longsdon is flying so it’s worth backing HOOT AT MIDNIGHT (12.45) in the handicap chase. The six-year-old recorded a career best when denying Tommie Beau at Fontwell this month. The mare was value for more than the half-length HOBBS red hot NOW verdict so stands to follow up down in trip. GREEN PLANET (1.45) can extend Alan King’s winning run in a fascinating novices’ hurdle. The gelding was unlucky to encounter Go Dante on last month’s timber bow at Bangor. There is plenty to come from this pacy type who should deservedly open his account. DORKING LAD (2.17) can give Gary Moore further glory here in the novices’ chase. The six-year-old was an excellent second to Luckofthedraw at Fontwell 11 days ago. The gelding still lurks on an inviting mark over fences so can land a competitive event. ACCELERANDO (5.20) can power home for team Crisford on the flat at Chelmsford. The juvenile was narrowly beaten by Better Half on her handicap bow over track and trip three weeks ago. That is strong form so the speedy filly ought to capitalise on an attractive mark. SIR RODNEYREDBLOOD (6.50) looks regal for shrewd John Jenkins in a tricky sprint. The four-year-old relished the all-weather when denying True Hero here last month and ought to make light of a 5lb hike. HATHLOOL (7.50) looks a typical Michael Appleby improver in the lucky last. The gelding stands to prevail with a repeat of this month’s solid second at Newcastle on debut for his yard. too hot to handleHobbs 4.20 GARRY OWEN PA 4.20 Tippy Toes Tippy Toes 4.50 Dark Terms Nikki’s Girl 5.20 Accelerando Leap Abroad 5.50 Hul Ah Bah Loo Spy 6.20 Trumble mums Tipple (nap) 6.50 Sir Rodneyredblood Restless Endeavour (nb) 7.20 Artemis Sky pirouette Queen 7.50 Hathlool balgair EBF FILLIES’ NOVICE STAKES (GBB RACE) (5) (2-Y-O) Winner £3,780 (11 run) 6f 1 (6) 3221 Baileys Accolade (16) M Johnston 9-7 (D)..

Helping hand made Bob strip game back to basics and freed up mind to rekindle love for sport in superb end to season BOB MacINTYRE insists simplicity has rocketed him back to peak form and cemented his belief he can always compete with the elite. The 25-year-old is on a high after becoming the first Scot to clinch a top-10 Race to Dubai finish since Paul Lawrie in 2012 thanks to his sparkling show at last week’s DP World Tour Championship. Only two-and-a-half weeks ago he was at his lowest ebb after a disastrous Portugal Masters, wondering what was happening with his game after an 82 on Sunday. The Oban ace wasn’t even sure if he’d go to the Middle East after that nightmare. But MacIntyre stripped it all back to basics, cleared his head and found the key to finish the season in ninth spot. He said: “It shows I can still compete. It was a massive confidence boost and a massive relief almost. “You’ve not lost your game completely, you’re actually better right now than you have been in the last two years. “Portugal was obviously the lowest of the lows for me. It’s the worst I’ve ever felt coming away from a tournament. Go to Dubai, or come home and just throw in the towel for the year? “I spoke to a lot of people, went to the airport and was feeling horrific. Then we got to Dubai and we put everything aside. “Obviously I’d just started working with Stuart (Morgan) and we’ve been working hard on certain things. “Even he said, ‘Look Bob, just let’s shut everything out. Speak to the people you need to speak to and, other than that, just go back to simple life. Throw stuff out the window. Let’s go back to playing golf because you love to play golf ’. “It’s amazing how simple I made things. I was just turning up, doing a little bit of practice, playing, disappearing, and doing it over and over again. It just frees the mind. “I was just playing golf, which is what I love doing. That’s probably the calmest I’ve been on a course in a year-and-a-half and the best attitude I’ve had. “If I can have a good attitude every week, who knows what I can do? It’s amazing how simple it is to have a good attitude on a course. It’s just little things we say to ourselves before by craig swan we hit every shot or before I get to a shot. I don’t know what it’s about, psychologists know. It tests different parts of the brain. I’m not the brightest but it works.” MacIntyre’s display on the Earth Course ensured an excellent 2021 would be recalled for the right reasons. It has been a valuable year for experience with trips to the US adding to impressive appearances at all four Majors, all of which he feels has been vital in his development. MacIntyre, who made the WGC-Matchplay last 16 at Dustin Johnson’s expense, said: “The biggest thing I’ve learned this year is I can compete at the top table of world golf. The Matchplay was the biggest reason for that. “At The Open I felt like I had a chance to win it on Sunday. At the Masters I felt like I had a great chance of finishing in the top five coming down the last four holes. “It didn’t quite happen but we were thereabouts. I had the most birdies of anyone there that week. There’s so much to take from this year but knowing I can compete at the top table is probably the biggest thing. “Overall my game is far better than it was last year or the year before. “That’s the funny thing about it. I haven’t played as much on the European Tour this year as previous years but my game is far better than it was two years ago when I had my highest year on the rankings. “I’m learning every time I go out and there’s been some great work done over the past two weeks.” MacIntyre is determined not to waste a positive moment and will head to South Africa for the Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek next month. He said: “It’s one of my favourite places in the world and I’m playing great. The scoring is always difficult there, which suits me perfectly. “I just want to keep playing. I’d have loved to have played this week and next week but I need time off. “My body needs to recover and I need to spend time with family. Leopard Creek is a great one to throw in there. If I took a longer time off, I’d probably throw the clubs away for three or four weeks and that’s too long. “When you are playing as good as I am, I don’t want to do that and let something go that’s sitting right.” It’s am-dram for Murphy after rant Shaun Murphy has been engulfed by a huge backlash to his boot out the amateurs rant at the UK Championship. The 2005 world champion lost 6-5 to Si Jiahui in York on Tuesday then said the teenager – in the draw of 128 as a top-up player – and fellow amateur players shouldn’t be in pro events. He raged: “I don’t know snooker why we allow amateurs to compete in pro tournaments. This is our livelihood, our living.” Most people in the game were opposed to his view, not least supremo Barry Hearn who said: “When I first put Shaun in the European Super League when 13 or 14, he was an amateur. Everyone needs a chance.” Last night Stephen Hendry lost 6-1 to Thepchaiya Un-Nooh, only the fourth in history to make five tons in a best-of-11 match. The Thai potter lived up to billing as he sank three centuries in 28 minutes. Ross Muir lost 6-2 to Mark Selby as Ronnie O’Sullivan beat Michael White 6-3.

The Edinburgh ace has spent the last few weeks training in Sin City with Josh Taylor as the pair gear up for blockbuster bouts. McGregor will defend his European bantamweight title against Armenian Narek Abgaryan in Manchester on December 18 while Taylor faces Jack Catterall in the new year. The duo were last in Vegas when Taylor was crowned undisputed light welterweight champion and partied in the aftermath. It’s all business this time as they’ve got to work in the famous Top Rank gym off the Strip, where legend Crawford did his hard yards before smashing Shawn Porter last weekend. McGregor said: “The last time I had no voice from the fight the night before! “It’s different this time – no pool parties. But I’m ALL BUSINESSMcGregor soaking up the experience and still enjoying it. There will be no celebration parties. It’s strictly business.” McGregor has taken the British, Commonwealth and European straps inside just 11 fights and is looking to move up to world level. Pound-for-pound star Naoya Inoue rules the division and is the longterm target. But a rematch with Scottish rival Kash Farooq is now set for early 2022, with McGregor having signed a co-promotion deal with Probellum and Eadie Hearn’s Matchroom. The 24-year-old said: “I’m fully focused on Abgaryan. But it’s no secret that the Farooq rematch is likely if we both come through our next fights.” Michael Gannon calls made for probe That’s probably the calmest I’ve been in a year-anda-half and the best attitude I’ve had bob macintyreON HIS NEW routine WHILE OUT ON THE COURSE easy decision Thompson Top talent Thompson staying a Warrior GLASGOW WARRIORS have agreed a contract extension with Ross Thompson through to at least the summer of 2024. The highly-rated 22-year-old has enjoyed a brilliant breakthrough year since making his debut off the bench against Edinburgh in January. Stand-off Thompson won his first Scotland cap against Tonga last month and has now scored 135 rugby points from his 19 appearances in Glasgow colours. Thompson said: “It was a pretty easy decision. I’ve really enjoyed my time with Glasgow, getting to know the boys and playing for this club. “I’m just looking to kick on and build now. I really enjoyed being in the Scotland environment and that’s definitely something I want to experience more of. “But my primary focus is giving my all for Glasgow and helping this club challenge at the top of the table.” Boss Danny Wilson said: “Ross is an outstanding individual who has really impressed us. “We’re pleased he has committed himself to the club for the future.” CRICKET SCOTLAND were branded “institutionally racist” as Majid Haq and Qasim Sheikh opened up. Haq is Scotland’s all-time leading wicket-taker but failed to play again after a race-related tweet during the 2015 World Cup. He wrote “always tougher when you’re in the minority! #colour #race” after he was not selected to play against Sri Lanka. On Sky, he said: “I was treated like a criminal. I was on the next flight home, that shows how tough it can be. I felt isolated and I felt I was right but I was told by the organisation to delete the tweet and apologise. I never did – why should I apologise for something I believe in? “Three months later, a white player complained about being left out of a squad and they did a massive U-turn within a day. There were different rules for him and me. “A lot of people have asked me if I think Cricket Scotland are institutionally racist – I think they are. An investigation would show they are.” Sheikh, 37, said: “I cricket was 25 and had scored backto-back centuries for my country. No other 25- year-olds had delivered those kind of results. I was dropped from the team for two bad performances. “I tried to get back in and it wasn’t happening so I spoke out in the Press. What followed was no one spoke to me for years and I never played for my country again after the age of 25.” A Cricket Scotland statement read: “Cricket Scotland operates a zerotolerance policy to all forms of racism and discrimination and condemns racism in all its forms. We won’t discuss individual cases at this stage but we would re-iterate that any allegations of racism or other forms of harassment – whether recent or historic incidents – that come out of that consultation, or that are reported separately to Cricket Scotland, will be thoroughly and properly investigated and dealt with. “We would encourage everyone to engage with those processes.”

Daily RecoRD Thursday, November 25, 2021 SCOTLAND MoRe aT DailyRecoRD.co.UK Craig: We have nothing to fear in play-offs if we go on front foot like we did against the Danes ROAD TO QATAR Play iT agaiN Gordon says a repeat display of one against Danes would boost bid as, far left, goalie promotes foodbank collection Page 63 SCOTLAND THE BRAVE Craig gordon reckons Scotland’s victory over denmark proves they have nothing to fear in the World Cup play-offs. Steve Clarke’s seeded national team will discover who they’ll face in the semi-finals when the draw is made in Zurich at 4pm tomorrow. Austria – who Scotland beat in Group F – Czech Republic, North Macedonia, Poland, Turkey and Ukraine are their potential opponents. Scotland will also have a better idea of who they could lock horns with should they progress, with Italy, Portugal, Russia, Sweden and Wales the other seeded nations. But after beating Denmark – ranked ninth in the world – 2-0 in their final group match having secured second spot, Hearts keeper Gordon insists Scotland won’t be short of belief. The 38-year-old said: “Denmark were missing a few players and probably weren’t at full strength. “But it was probably about McPake: Griffiths can still have a go at Qatar hero JAMES McPAKE believes that a revitalised Leigh Griffiths can make his mark for Dundee – and Scotland. The Celtic striker has struggled for form and fitness since joining the Dark Blues on a season-long loan at the end of August. The 31-year-old has just one goal in seven matches in his second stint at Dens. He’s been By alaN MaRSHall us and our performance. We managed to take the game to the opposition. No matter who it is in the play-offs, we have to do those same things again. “If we can do that, we give ourselves a great chance as we put together some great moves in the Denmark game and were unlucky not to score a few more. “That would have been fantastic but it was a good allround performance on both sides of the game. “Some of the counter attacks were also great when we had the chance.” Asked who he’d like to get in the semis, Gordon said: “I don’t mind. It’s going to be difficult. “All the teams have done well and got there through the Nations League or finished second in their group. They’ve all had good runs. “We need to win the first game, so let’s concentrate on that. We will try to win that and then see what happens.” Scotland will be at Hampden hampered by a niggling ankle injury but had an injection during the international break, which has allowed him to put in a power of work in training. McPake has chatted with both Griffiths and Hoops boss Ange Postecoglou. And he insists the frontman – who has 22 caps – still has plenty to offer club and country, for the semi-final while a draw will determine which sides will be at home for the final. After playing in front of a raucous National Stadium in crucial wins over the Danes and Israel, Gordon – now capped 64 times – knows how important that could be. He said: “Those two matches, the atmosphere was incredible. “Hampden is such a good place to play when it’s full. It can be difficult when it’s empty to create pressure against the other team. “But when it’s like that, you hear players talking about it and it was a factor. “If we can fill Hampden and have everyone pulling in the right direction... but that’s what it has been during this campaign from players, fans, the atmosphere around the national team has been so CONFIDENT Poland boss Paulo Sousa joined the Czechs in insisting his dream draw tomorrow would be Scotland. And he’s even looking to the final already. He said: “In the first match I would like to play away against Scotland. Then after that we want to play Sweden.” with Scotland involved in World Cup play-offs come March. McPake said: “Leigh had an injection as his ankle had been hampering him, there is no doubt about that. “He hadn’t played for a while before he came here and we asked a lot of him coming in. “But I’ve been really pleased with his work rate. He’s been positive. Everyone is fighting for the same thing. That makes a huge difference and hopefully we can continue to progress.” The youngsters have lit up the national squad and Gordon insists this group is among the strongest he has played with. The goalie, who earned his first cap in 2004, said: “This current squad will be close to the top. It has a bit of everything. “You have the togetherness e v er y on e has shown to get through difficult situations and games, but also the ability to pass the ball and create chances. “We are a really good team at the moment. “It’s always difficult to pit different teams against each other as it’s different eras and different styles of play. “But certainly at the moment it’s very enjoyable to be part of training well and shown a real hunger to work hard. “I’ve had talks with him. I also had a conversation with Ange and he spoke very highly about Leigh.

The Scotland midfielder was bafflingly overlooked on a regular basis by axed manager Daniel Farke as the German boss dragged the Canaries to the bottom.

Clarke wanted to call him up for World Cup qualifiers against Denmark, Moldova and Austria in September but Palmer opted to stay with his club where he was negotiating a new contract.

The winger was a constant thorn in Hibs’ side, working Josh Doig and Paul Hanlon hard on the flank. He should have made it 2-0 late on but that didn’t tarnish a display of energy, guile and invention. PREMIERSHIP LIVE FROM Hampden heaven to hell in the Highlands, Hibs’ mood shift was sharp and severe last night. A bizarre and fortuitous Blair Spittal goal sank the Edinburgh side in their fifth straight league defeat as the fireworks they produced at the National Stadium fizzled out in Dingwall’s drizzle. County’s game in hand was cashed in, earning them a second win of the campaign and taking the bottom-of-thetable side to within a point of nearest foes Dundee. Chances of recovery for the Easter Road club were dashed by a senseless red card for Christian Doidge late on. And Martin Boyle followed after full-time for raging at ref Gavin Duncan. Hibs headed north without suspended centre-half Ryan Porteous, the only absentee from Sunday’s monumental Premier Sports Cup semi-final victory over Rangers. They also travelled up the A9 with a burning sense of grievance. That was sparked on two fronts – the fixture pile-up looming through December and the SPFL’s award of just 17,500 tickets for next month’s final against Celtic at Hampden. Those concerns were set to one side, though, given the pressing need for Premiership recovery for Jack Ross’ side. County’s issue in the build-up to last night, far from being fixture overload, had been a lack of matches. The 4-2 Rangers defeat on November 7 was the Staggies’ only 90 minutes in almost a month since battering Dundee 5-1 at Dens Park to break a run of 10 winless league games. There was little of worth from both sides in the opening 12 minutes before Sunday’s hattrick man Boyle burst away on the right. The Australia international’s pace took him surging away from Connor Randall and his cross was perfectly hung up for pal Kevin Nisbet. Square on goal, the Scotland striker’s downward header went straight into the arms of goalie Ashley Maynard-Brewer. A couple of minutes later, Chris Cadden found space to the right of the box and a similarly dangerous delivery found Nisbet powering another header at goal, this time wide of the right-hand post.

I was told it was for violent conduct and from my position I can’t see how that was the case. “But the ref was a lot closer than me so I will look at it again. “Martin’s one is an interesting one because it’s down to something he said. “The referee has told me it was directed at him personally but Martin has told me he said it was about his performance. “To me, that’s two different things and the reaction should be different. “At the moment I’m not sure how that pans out, especially

County have rued their luck at times this term but the bizarre 73rd-minute breakthrough held a healthy dose of the stuff. Substitute Spittal’s first touch was a low cross from the left that went through a cluster of legs and deceived Macey before nestling fifth highest scorers in the league, with widemen Hungbo and Regan Charles-Cook always lively. Toward the hour mark, Boyle’s explosive pace again caused trouble for the home team before Josh Campbell’s lay-off found Nisbet drilling a shot low but again straight at Maynard-Brewer. Doidge, back fit for the first time since August, added to his substitute minutes against Rangers as a 67thminute replacement for the mostly ineffective Nisbet. It was County who threatened next, though, with Hungbo’s drive from sharp right of the box pushed from how it’s looked at it. It’s difficult then to say how one person is right and how one is wrong. We will need to look at that in the morning.” Ross, though, admitted there was uncertainty over the reds.

The Italian left England in 2018 after being shown the door by Chelsea despite winning the Premier League plus FA Cup in his two years in charge.

He sees tonight’s Europa Conference League tie with NS Mura as a chance to improve the fitness of his stars in a bid to get them shown The DooR Nuno punching their weight at the business end of the season. Conte said: “I have won trophies in the past but this is a new situation and you have to prove yourself again. “We have to be focused and work hard to improve. “I don’t see another way to reach our target. There is only this way.” Let’s bring Moyes as crowd cannot RaPiD vienna v wesT haM DAVID MOYES admits it will feel like West Ham are back in lockdown tonight as he challenged his side to seal top spot in Group H. The Hammers need a win on the road at Rapid Vienna to finish top of their Europa League section and avoid a play-off with a team dropping out of the Champions League. No fans are allowed in the stadium due to a national lockdown in Austria, which followed a UEFA ban on away fans. Moyes knows it will feel like a throwback to empty eMPTy Feeling Moyes houses at the height of the pandemic but backed his boys to get the job done. He said: “It’s a challenge. It’s a situation we hoped we’d never see again, that we wouldn’t be back in. “When it first happened it felt awkward. The voices, shouting, screaming. I hope we’re able to deal with it.” CAMERON CARTER-VICKERS admits it’s taken two months for the climate change at Celtic to move from net zero to something much more acceptable. A 4-0 Europa League home defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in September became the benchmark for early season woes as the Hoops racked up a fifth loss in eight games and sat pointless in Group G after two rounds of fixtures. Fast forward to tonight’s clash in the BayArena and Ange Postecoglou’s side are back in the qualification hunt after back-to-back wins over Ferencvaros. Defensive issues also appear to be remedied, having conceded only six goals in a nine-game unbeaten run since that painful previous meeting with the Bundesliga cracks. Sorry September feels like a lifetime ago as far as Carter-Vickers is concerned. He said: “It was a couple of months ago now and we have improved since then as a team, both attacking wise and defensively. “We are in a different kind of mood now as a squad. We are confident we can go there and play our football – and try to get a result. “It will be a good game and a real test for us. But with our recent run of results, I’m confident we can go there and get something. “Obviously overall we have had a tough group with Betis, Leverkusen and Ferencvaros. But at this stage we have six points and we’re still in with a shout of getting through to the knockout rounds in the Europa League so that’s what we’re going to try to do.” If Celtic can emerge from this test with at least a point, it will set up a December 9 shoot-out for second place with Betis who sit one point in front as they host the Hungarians tonight. It’s a proposition on-loan Tottenham defender Carter-Vickers has underlined as a priority. He said: “100 per cent, that’s the aim. As long as we can still qualify, that’s what we want to do. “We know if we can get something in Germany then it sets up a big game back at home against Betis. We would go into that one confident as well. “The big European nights at home are really good. To be fair, not just the European nights, I think all the games are good. “The stadium is always full for the league games as well as the European ones. “The atmosphere is incredible for every game. I look forward to them all.” And one note of encouragement for the 23-year-old comes in the shape of stats showing a Leverkusen side sitting fourth in the Bundesliga have shipped 11 goals in six home league games. Carter- Vickers If we can get something in Germany it sets up a big game back home with Betis CAMERON CARTER- VICKERS on squad’s PusH FoR KnoCKouT sTaGEs by goRDon PaRKs is equally aware of the attacking threats that will come his way but he’s adamant Celtic’s approach will be to take the game to the Germans. He said: “Leverkusen are a top side. They have great attacking players, quick attacking players who play in a top league in the Bundesliga. “We know it’ll be a test for us but we just have to go there, try to impose our style on the game and see what happens.” Celtic are already guaranteed European football beyond Christmas as they have the Conference League as security if they exit the Europa. But Carter-Vickers isn’t ready to consider the fallback option. He said: “It’s good to know we have that but while we can still qualify for the Europa League, that’s what we want to do. We want to aim as high as we can and at the moment we can still do it, so that’s what we want.” The Spurs man has been a consistent and impressive performer at the back for Postecoglou since making the temporary switch from London on deadline day and he hasn’t ruled out a permanent stay in Glasgow. Carter-Vickers, as yet, has had no conversations with new Tottenham boss Antonio Conte, below, and he conceded a long-term future with the Hoops could be on the horizon. He added: “It’s something that I’m open to but I haven’t given it much thought at this stage, to be fair. “I still have plenty of games left in this season and that is my focus. “I have really enjoyed it. The staff and the players have been really good with me and that’s helped me. “It’s still early days but for me personally – and as a team – we’ve got to keep going and keep the consistency. “For me at the moment, I’m here at Celtic, I’m a Celtic player, so my focus is more on impressing the manager here and trying to get results for Celtic. Anything further than that I haven’t really given much thought to. “I feel like I have adapted to the Scottish Premiership. That is partly down to the coaches and the players here making me feel so welcome from the beginning. “The coach has put in a system that is easy to adapt to and play in. That’s helpful. “Last season I was at Bournemouth and we got to the play-offs in the Championship. “The year before that I was at Luton. When I went there in January we were at the bottom and we managed to stay up. “So I have had a few good ones and a few where I’ve learned something but this is definitely one where I’m learning a lot. I’m enjoying my football.”

The Aussie believes there’s simply no other option across the board at a huge side as demanding as Celtic. Postecoglou said: “Well you’ve got no choice. “Unfortunately or fortunately, whatever way you want to put it, when you join this football club, that’s what you are signing up for. “You are not just signing up to play for a club that has great standing and has great support. You are signing up to be just that – to be hungry for success. “If you are not, you won’t last here. “Not if you are a player, or a manager or a member of staff here.” The 56-year-old is desperate to get his hands on silverware having taken over in the summer. And his new-look squad are hungry to get back into the winners’ circle after the club ended last term without any trophies. But immediately before that, the Parkhead club put together an incredible run of 12 straight domestic trophy triumphs for an unprecedented quadruple Treble as they managed to relentlessly maintain the highest standards. And Postecoglou said: “That’s the expectation. “You have got to walk around here – whether you have been here for a couple of months or for 10 years – and approach every game as if we haven’t had success for a long time. “That’s the demands and that’s how you stay on top of your game always.” Postecoglou also insists it would be pointless being shy and safe on the road against Bayer Leverkusen tonight as that will tell him nothing. The Hoops manager believes that negativity only breeds inferiority – and he would rather learn the hard way trying to be positive. Postecoglou said: “You’ll MeaSURiNg UP Seoane learn absolutely nothing if you go out there and shy away from it. “We can go and be conservative, try to hold on, try to survive. “But if we do that then we’ll learn nothing. “All you learn is that you’re inferior and you don’t believe you can be any better. “The only way we’ll learn anything in this game is if we go out there and take the game to them. “That may be a painful lesson for us all but ultimately it’s a better way for us to find out. “It may not be a painful lesson, it may show that we’re making a hell of a lot of progress. “I’d rather go there and find out about ourselves than just go there and try to survive. “That’s not the way that you develop or grow as a team. “If we want to get to these levels, then we’ve got to use these games as a measuring stick. “And the only way to get measured is to go out and put yourself out there.” With Real Betis a point clear in second spot, Celtic may need a positive result against Gerardo Seoane’s side to still stand a chance of getting out of Group G and into the Europa League knockouts. Postecoglou said: “There are also consequences on the result. “I’m sure we’ll have some bright spots.

The Parkhead boss is aware his troops face a mammoth challenge against Bayer Leverkusen to keep alive their hopes of reaching the Europa League knockout stages. Celtic have already lost by four goals to the Bundesliga team on their own patch on the second evening of the Group G campaign. In Postecoglou’s opinion, his squad are basically facing a Champions League outfit in their backyard. With history also against the Hoops, having never won in 12 visits to Germany, the size of the task needs little outlining. But so long as his team are true to themselves and their values, Postecoglou will be undaunted. It might be big but this is a challenge he wants tackled head on. And the message to the group is simple – leave nothing behind in the effort. Postecoglou said: “Spot on and that’s the only way you can measure it. “If we fall short, at least we’ll know we’ve given it all and we’ll know where we need to improve. “But if you go out there sort of trying to just have selfpreservation or playing safe or not going out with the intention of leaving everything out there, you’ll never really know. “That’s what we’ll do in every game – take on the challenge – and hopefully we can be successful and move on from there. “It’ll be challenging. They are a good side, they have picked up their form in the league. “We have obviously played against them once and we know they are a side that are very quick on transition with quality players throughout their team. “We are going to have to put our best foot forward to match them. It’s a challenge for us to try to impose our game on them. “We are playing one of the top teams in Europe. To all intents and purposes they’re a Champions League side and we are playing SKIN IN THE GAME Christie them in their backyard, so that can’t be underestimated. “But we have to go there and see how we measure up.” Celtic will have to be in peak form to succeed but, despite the heavy scoreline, there were signs at Parkhead in the first meeting to offer some optimism. Although Joe Hart was beaten four times, Bayer counterpart Lukas Hradecky could have suffered the same fate had he not performed heroics due to the chances the home side created in Glasgow’s east end. Postecoglou acknowledged both angles – attacking and defensive – when it was put to him his team caused Leverkusen problems as he said: “Yes we did but we also conceded four goals. “We have to make sure that we are concentrating all of the time and are well disciplined. They are a team that will wait on any mistakes we make and punish us. “When the first game was at 0-0 in the first 20-odd minutes, we probably created the better chances. But then we made a mistake, they scored and we lost composure for a little bit. “It’s always a battle away from home in Europe and especially this one. It’s important we have our concentration levels and discipline when we have the ball and, if we make mistakes, we don’t let the opposition punish us.” Asked if Bayer would be facing he is planning to add to his collection. Christie left Parkhead for a £2.5million fee, which could rise to £4m with add-ons, this summer. He said: “I have already promised a lot of people that there will be a set of Cherries on me if we get promoted. I’ve not decided a different Celtic team now to the one from back in September, Postecoglou added: “I don’t think so. “We are obviously more settled now. Before that game Kyogo Furuhashi had been out for a month and that was his first game back. Callum McGregor had been out for three weeks and it was his first game back. “We were going through a very unsettled period and we are definitely more settled. But the fabric, the core of the side and the way we want to play, won’t be that different. “Irrespective, it is still a massive challenge. There’s no doubt results help with belief and our confidence but I’ve tried to make sure the attitude doesn’t change. “Even when we were going through a rocky spell, the way we train, the way we conduct ourselves, you can’t just be dependent on results. “We have got to believe in ourselves, go out and take a game to opponents. Work hard every day in training. “That is the key to being successful. If you just wait for things to go well for you, you are where – maybe on my heart! I have told the boys already, ‘Any suggestions let me know and I’ll add them to the list’.” As for the number of tattoos he has, Christie added: “I’ve no idea! I’m not going to count but there are a lot more hidden. “A lot is just nonsense! It going to miss opportunities. “We’re settled, the team have belief but in terms of approach and our daily interaction with each other, it’s still the same. “It’s the focus being on the best team we can be.” Postecoglou has confirmed Stephen Welsh will be available for the tie after sustaining a facial knock against St Johnstone five days ago but Tom Rogic, Carl Starfelt and Giorgos Giakoumakis are still sidelined. He said: “Welshy has trained OK. He got a decent whack on his cheekbone but he’s all good. “Tommy is the closest of the three but probably the weekend is more likely. Carl’s a couple of days behind him, so he might be midweek next week. “Giakoumakis’ knee is still giving some problems after that knock, so we are going to get that looked at again. “He’s definitely out. It’s nothing too serious but it’s something that is concerning him.” Christie plans to tattoo Cherries on heart RYAN CHRISTIE has pledged to get a tattoo of a bunch of Cherries if promoted to the Premier League with Bournemouth. The ex-Celtic playmaker already has an eclectic collection of body ink from Latin phrases to bananas. But with his club being nicknamed the Cherries, NICE TO BEAT YOU Florian Wirtz nets at Parkhead two months ago and, right, old Bhoy Jeremie Frimpong chats to Nir Bitton It’s vital if we make mistakes we don’t let the opposition punish us ANGE POSTECOGLOU TELLS HOOPS PLAYERS TO FOCUS started with there being a reason behind them and then my want for tattoos outgrew that. It’s a bit of the weird and wonderful. “The Latin quote was the first one. That is the only one that has semi got a good reason behind it because my dad loves his Roman history.” It’s cup to us to deal with the squeeze on fixtures CELTIC boss Ange Postecoglou understands Jack Ross’ frustrations about scheduling around next month’s Premier Sports Cup Final. But the Aussie admits he’s struggling to see an alternative due to his side’s packed programme. Postecoglou is also adamant his team will be finely tuned for the Hampden showpiece when it comes around on December 19. Hibs gaffer Ross has hit out at the brutal fixture demands around the clash and believes the log-jammed list could hurt the quality of the big match. The Easter Road club face Dundee on the Tuesday before the Sunday showdown but Celtic also have a pile-up with a game against Ross County the following night in the Highlands coming in the midst of 12 games in a 39-day spell. Asked if he could understand Ross’ concerns, Postecoglou said: “I absolutely do. “And ideally you’d love to have a seven-day break. “But the reality of it is, when you’re in multiple competitions like we are, we are going to be in Europe post-Christmas so we are going to have midweek games in the second half of the season. “I don’t know where else they could put a game. I’m sure they probably looked at it. “Ultimately for us as a club, the history suggests that when you sign up, you are going to play 50 or 60 games a year because that’s the expectations and you want to do well in all tournaments. “From our perspective, it’s about making sure that with the games we have got, we put our best foot forward, play the best football we can. “And, when it gets around to the final, we’ll make sure we’re well prepared so we don’t want to let an opportunity go by.” Ross has also expressed fears over the welfare of players and the potential for additional injuries during such heavy schedules. Postecoglou added: “That’s part of a worldwide issue. How much do you want players to play and still expect maximum levels? You have that extra load, which makes it even more challenging for our players.”

Ange Postecoglou’s side will attempt to keep their Group G qualification hopes alive by claiming at least a point against the Bundesliga giants who put four past them without reply in Glasgow. Despite admitting the Hoops have been transformed since that defeat two months ago, Seoane is convinced soaking up pressure and hitting back with the sucker punch could be the answer to Celtic’s attack at all costs philosophy. He said: “Celtic have to go out and attack because in the last two games they need to get results. “That could mean we have more space. We have to make sure we are organised and defend well – but also have possession so we can control the game. “They have shown in recent games they are keen to play on the front foot all the time. But every team needs a balance of attack and defence. “Every coach has their own way of doing things and you can clearly see the way Celtic are approaching their games. “They are good in attack, so we will need to keep it lUc aWay Alario scored in Glasgow but is a doubt for matchday five far tighter than we did in Glasgow. They are definitely better organised in defence and also in their pressing.” Leverkusen will be without key Dutch defenders Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Mitchel Bakker as well as Austrian midfielder Julian Baumgartlinger. There are also doubts over winger Karim Bellarabi, Chilean midfielder Charles Aranguiz and Argentina international Lucas Alario. It is an injury list that has disrupted Bayer’s league form and Seoane insists it’s far from ideal going in against a side whose 4-0 defeat in their last meeting wasn’t a fair reflection of proceedings. He said: “In Glasgow we deserved to win but it wasn’t really a four-goal difference between the two teams. “We were very determined in our finishing and took our chances. Celtic produced good moves but didn’t score. “One thing that has changed is we’ve had to adapt our approach. We’ve faced many challenges since then, both in personnel and on the pitch. “But it’s positive for us to find solutions to those challenges. “Obviously we want to get players back as soon as possible and we have to act with the medical department in making decisions. “But we will field the best team we can and also try to produce the best performance we can. “I don’t think it’s good to hold back and hold on to what you’ve got. We want to play on the front foot, take more chances and improve all over.” Chris is a good pal Amine and he’ll be fine BAYER winger Amine Adli is backing ex-Toulouse teammate and Celtic comeback man Christopher Jullien to return better than ever. The French defender has been out of action for almost a year after a freak injury at Celtic Park left him with a serious knee injury. Jullien is recovering well and in recent weeks has been stepping up his rehab in a bid to kickstart his Hoops career under gaffer Ange Postecoglou. French wideman Adli is confident his former Ligue 1 pal will come back stronger from his setback. He said: “I know Chris from Toulouse. When I was young Bayer gaffer rejects all out attack tactic I trained with the professional squad sometimes when he was there. “He is a good defender, good with his head – better than me for sure! “He is a really good guy, good with the young players at the club. “When I was training with the first team in Toulouse he Celtic need results.. that means we could have more space on the pitch Gerardo Seoane plAns to HIt on tHE CoUntER helped me every time.

It was thought the Ibrox side would receive around 3000 tickets for the Group A clash on December 9 but the club are still awaiting confirmation of this. That’s left fans frustrated as they look to make plans but it comes at a time when Covid-19 infections have skyrocketed in France. A Rangers statement read: “We’re still awaiting confirmation of our away allocation. We appreciated frustrations at the lack of clarity on this fixture and appreciate the impact it can have on travel plans. “We greatly value our travelling support and have requested that we receive clarity as soon as possible.” Europe is battling a fifth wave of coronavirus building up to the festive period and France has seen rising cases despite being one of the most vaccinated countries in the world. Austria has gone back into full lockdown and there have been protests in Holland over restrictions.

It comes after Sparta claimed they were bombarded with “disgusting threats” following their controversial first meeting in September. Rangers will introduce boss Gio van Bronckhorst for his first game in charge in the penultimate match in the Europa League group stage, with the sides both on four points. But there is lingering bad blood between the clubs and UEFA will take the unusual precaution of assigning their own special security officer to the match while Sparta have urged their fans to keep a low profile in Glasgow. Rangers star Glen Kamara, who was racially abused by Slavia Prague’s Ondrej Kudela last season, was booed by a crowd of AGONY Boyle fires past Gers’ McGregor for Hibs at Hampden rangers v sparta prague MORE AT Da PRAGUE BOOS Kamara mostly schookids when Sparta won 1-0 in Group A. UEFA only allowed kids into that game following a sanction for previous racist abuse. But the governing body took no action when they investigated the booing of Kamara in Prague. Now Sparta, who are also taking their own security staff to Glasgow, have put Czech diplomats in the UK on alert for the return. Sparta communications director Ondrej Kasik said: “We are approaching this match in a much different way to our normal European away matches. “That was made clear to us just a few hours after the first game when our club’s email and social media networks were flooded with threats and disgusting content. So we are in constant contact with Czech diplomatic representatives in Great Britain and they will help us.” SILENCE IS beyond Christmas and tee up ALLAN McGREGOR has never been a man to pay much attention to the world outside the Rangers dressing room. Even if it’s just a few yards away on the touchline The Ibrox keeper famously keeps his own thoughts under wraps so he was never going to voice an opinion on someone else’s take. Connor Goldson’s admission after Sunday’s Premier Sports Cup semi-final slump against Hibs about some of the Light Blues losing their hunger sparked outrage among a section of the support. It’s not a claim that’s likely to ever be levelled at McGregor, mind you, but he certainly wasn’t going to get involved in McGregor isn’t interested in Connor’s ‘hunger’ comments as keeper eyes Sparta clean sheet by Michael Gannon a slanging match with his vice captain on the eve of tonight’s crucial Europa League clash with Sparta Prague. When the comments were put to him, the 39-year-old did the opposite of what he usually does on the pitch. He dived right out of the way. McGregor said: “I never saw it. As you probably well know, I don’t read newspapers or listen to things so I haven’t heard what he’s said. This is about Thursday’s game. That didn’t happen. It’s nothing to do with tomorrow.” Whether or not that’s a feeling shared behind closed doors will only be known by the men involved. Either way, McGregor won’t want to dwell on a miserable afternoon at Hampden. Goldson’s been slaughtered for his comments but Gers fans will fear he had a point. The team have lacked something at times this season. It might be a spark, it might be the hunger. They look like a side who used up so much energy climbing the mountain last season, they’ve decided to catch their breath and stand around admiring the view. In fairness, for all the mood has become darker around Govan, with some iffy displays and Steven Gerrard jumping ship, the scene doesn’t exactly look bleak. Rangers are four points clear at the top of the table and a two-goal victory tonight would guarantee European football another Europa League knockout stages jaunt. There’s also a new manager with Gio van Bronckhorst now the main man – and he’s looking to get off to a flier. The Dutchman has the backing of the whole support, who worshipped him as a player and have been impressed with the start he’s made to his managerial career, ending Feyenoord’s 18-year wait for the title before his short Covid-hit spell in China. The new gaffer will bring his own ideas but he’ll need some of the trusted lieutenants to help him out in the short term. It’s incredible to think McGregor was just coming through the system when van

The game has gone full circle and now the keeper is a key component at the club as he approaches 40. Van Bronckhorst won’t need to pull the shot-stopper to one side and ask him to play a leading role in the new regime. He does that anyway. McGregor is never a man for big answers. Or any answers. And it’s the same when he was asked about his role in the next phase. It’ll be business as usual. McGregor said: “I don’t think it changes. I’m still the same person so I just need to keep on doing what I’m doing. “Outwith playing games and around training I don’t think anything changes really.” Some things might need to change in the short term for the side, though. They can’t keep giving away goals of a start in particular. Gers allowed Aberdeen, Motherwell, St Mirren, Ross County and Brondby in recent weeks to get a leg up but they managed to bounce back. They were at it again at Hampden against Hibs. But this time they were made to pay. It’s one thing gifting a start, it’s another chucking in three before you get going. Van Bronckhorst might have been sold on the move with a vision of the club being top of the table, in a semi-final and in the hunt in Europe. Shuffling uncomfortably in his seat at Hampden, he must have wondered if he’d overlooked EARLY SLIPS Sparta’s David Hancko laps up his winner against Gers, left, and Goldson is gutted at Hampden something in the home report. It’s probably a tougher job than van Bronckhorst might have expected – but he has been backed to build something special at Ibrox. His old Holland team-mate Nigel de Jong is convinced the appointment is a match made in heaven. And former Manchester City midfielder de Jong also reckons his old pal will install some Dutch courage at Ibrox again. He said: “Gio will bring the Dutch attitude to Rangers – always attacking, going forward in every aspect of the game. “He’ll also have excellent man management skills. “As a young manager he understands the transition from player to boss, he’ll understand dick quits iraq role FORMER Rangers boss Dick Advocaat could retire for a fifth time at the age of 74 after quitting as Iraq boss after just three months. The Dutch manager was hired by the Middle East country to salvage their qualifying campaign for next year’s World Cup and he took charge on six occasions, with Iraq’s home games played in Qatar. But he failed to guide them to a single win and walked away from his 24th managerial role for what looks certain to be the last time. Advocaat said: “The expectations were high and unfortunately we were unable to meet them. I’ll take a break before deciding the next step.” He was supposed to quit football after leaving Feyenoord last season, which was the fourth time Advocaat announced he was retiring from the game. But he was tempted back to manage Iraq in August. good one. “He also knows the club as a former player and that’s very important. It’ll be good for their fanbase and he’ll need their support. He’ll be a success. “In the management world it’s not that easy to get a job but eventually he got the right one. “Patience is key. I’m pleased for him and interested in seeing how he’ll get on. It’s fantastic seeing him going to Rangers after Stevie G went to Aston Villa. “It’s a great opportunity for him to excel in Europe. He’s a young coach but he had some good experience at Feyenoord. “He doesn’t have a great deal of experience but it’s a good step up, going to a club with a great set-up and legacy left by Steven.” Page 73 Hotline GORDON PARKS ANSWERS YOUR CALLS GIO VAN BRONCKHORST has barely got his feet under his desk at Ibrox but the Rangers boss needs to get down to business sharpish. Sparta Prague are in town tonight but Celtic fans have taken a glance at the fixture list and they reckon the Light Blues gaffer is in for a tough start on his return to Scotland. Kevin Kean, Inchinnan, said: “GVB has a daunting bedding-in period. A first experience on Livingston’s plastic pitch, Easter Road, Tynecastle, Pittodrie and Parkhead are coming up in the next six weeks. The four-point lead will evaporate long before the Celtic game.” Tam Williamson, Lanarkshire, said: “The only way that GVB can make Rangers hungry again is to close down the Ibrox staff canteen.” Gers fans are still fizzing about Sunday’s Premier Sports Cup defeat to Hibs and the post-match soundbites from Connor Goldson. Robert Robertson, Barnsley, said: “If players choose to make stupid comments to the media about games being lost at half-time, then he deserves all the flak coming his way. James Tavernier, excellent last season but a country mile off it this, should have been man enough to face the cameras after the game.” Raymond Davidson emailed: “For Goldson to slag off his team-mates was disgraceful as he was the culprit as the worst Rangers player. It’s obvious he doesn’t want to be at Rangers anymore.” Some Rangers supporters have told Celts to cool their jets. George Wilson, West Sussex, said: “Just a reminder to caller Gordon Ashley who says Rangers can’t win in front of their own supporters, we are four quote of the day ‘The only way that Giovanni van Bronckhorst can make Rangers hungry again is to close down Ibrox staff canteen’ points clear at the top of the league, are unbeaten in the league at Ibrox since the season before last and have beaten his beloved Celtic this season in front of over 50,000 of our own supporters Ian McKendrick emailed: “Can I remind Mr Ashley that Celtic haven’t won anything yet and just scraped past St Johnstone.” On to Celtic and some advice for Ange Postecoglou. David Bryce, Troon, said: “If Ange goes toe to toe with Leverkusen we’ll get absolutely thrashed again. We simply do not have the players to carry out this approach. He needs to adapt tactically and show he is not a one-trick pony. “The great coaches always adapt and find ways to grind out results. Ange must take note.” Record Sport’s Chris Sutton is on pundit duty for BT Sport tonight – but he will be locked out of Ibrox. Martin Leggat emailed: “Another disgraceful decision from Ibrox. Chris Sutton once more not allowed to do his work for BT Sport from the home of Rangers. It says more about their own fear of their own fans’ treatment of an ex-Celtic player.” Meanwhile, the row over giving cop Bernard Higgins a gig at Parkhead rumbles on. Kevin Lord, Edinburgh, said: “If the Celtic board crumbles in their appointment of staff, due to fans who obviously do not relish being called to task over bigotry and violence complaining, they have no right to be in control of any law-abiding company.” Lastly, Dundee owner John Nelms wants to finally get hold of Dens Park but United fans aren’t convinced. Kenny Goff emailed: “The only reason Nelms wants to buy Dens is to sell it on for multi-millions for housing. John Bennett would be a right mug to sell it for the price being said but I can imagine it as a car and coach park for the big matches over the road.” HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE BIGGEST ISSUES IN SPORT AND EMAIL: hotline@dailyrecord.co.uk

Fleck hit the deck in the 72nd minute with no one near him and needed more than 10 minutes of urgent medical attention. The midfielder was stretchered off and taken to Royal Berkshire Hospital but Blades chiefs said he was conscious when he left the ground and had comprehensive tests before being allowed to return home yesterday to recuperate. United won the match 1-0 but goalscorer Jayden Bogle admitted the squad were left shaken up by the incident, with memories still fresh of Denmark playmaker Christian Eriksen collapsing on the pitch during the Euros. The Inter Milan star recovered after being diagnosed with a heart issue. It is unknown what caused Fleck’s collapse. Bogle insisted he is just relieved his Blades pal is back out of hospital after the side were left holding their breath in Berkshire. He said: “Yes, you fear the worst definitely – especially when it happened so quickly. “It is horrible when you see something like that happen on the pitch. “The main thing is that he is OK and he is stable. You don’t expect things like that to happen. “You just go out there expecting to play a normal football match. “You don’t think about something like that going into games. But they can happen. It was hard to switch your focus back on to the game. “Obviously you don’t relieved Goalscorer Bogle want something like that to happen and after it did, you have to focus on the game and finish the game for him.” Boss Slavisa Jokanovic admitted Fleck’s sudden collapse was traumatic for everyone but he’s hopeful the playmaker is already on the road to recovery with no lasting effects. Jokanovic said: “The experience we all had was so dramatic and horrible, you hope that John will return as soon as possible in good shape and to his normal life, playing football like he did before. “We send him the best regarding support to his friends and family.” Sheffield United last night confirmed Fleck had been allowed to return home while Scotland squad stars such as skipper Andy Robertson posted their support for the star on social media. The club said: “Sheffield United are grateful to report John Fleck has been discharged from hospital and will return to Sheffield. “He was conscious when he was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital and was communicative with club and medical personnel, as well as his family. After comprehensive medical examinations and staying in hospital overnight for observation, he has been allowed home.” Ex-Ger Dorrans is ready to lead Pars by example GRAHAM DORRANS thanked his new gaffer for keeping the faith after being handed the armband at Dunfermline. The former Rangers midfielder has been made captain by John Hughes after the manager helped lift Pars off the bottom of the Championship with a 3-0 win over Ayr.

Daily RecoRD Thursday, November 25, 2021 MoRe aT DailyRecoRD.co.UK TONIGHT, 8PM, BT SPORT 3 Page 75 Step by step the players will understand the way I work and the way I want to play giovanni van bronckhorst on his ibrox plans by KeiTH jacKSoN THINGS are going to change. Giovanni van Bronckhorst could hardly have sent out a clearer message yesterday after spending two days hammering the same thing home to his Rangers players behind the closed gates of Auchenhowie. This is not just the start of a working relationship with a new boss after three-and-a-half years of life according to Steven Gerrard. This is a moment for recalibration. An improved mindset is required given the gloomy, half-hearted mood music that surrounded Sunday’s rock-bottom semi-final defeat to Hibs. A fresh sense of hunger too. And, judging by what van Bronckhorst was saying yesterday, an on the spot overhaul of the way they go about the business of winning football matches too. The Dutchman is clearly expecting instant and obvious results when he sends his side out to face Sparta Prague tonight in what is shaping up to be a winner-takes-all Europa League showdown. Van Bronckhorst said: “It’s been a very short time. I’ve only trained with the players for two days. But they can already sense the things I want to change and what is needed to become successful again. “It’s not only on the pitch but also the way we behave as a team, the way we have to be prepared mentally. You can’t do everything in two days. I will need more time. But step by step I’m sure the players will understand the way I work and also the way I want to play.” Given the staleness that has settled over the blue side of Glasgow this season, van Bronckhorst’s manifesto is likely to be a crowd-pleaser. The former player will be welcomed back like some long lost son by a sell-out crowd when he takes his seat in the home dugout. But it’s the players van Bronckhorst really must get on board at a time when one or two of them appear to be of a mind to down tools. Connor Goldson’s admission that this team may have lost its appetite for success, having won just a single trophy from the last available 10, has heightened the suspicion that Rangers are experiencing some kind of internal crisis – even if they are one game away from the knockout stages of Europe and sit four points clear at the top of the domestic pile. Van Bronckhorst had better hope they are ready to learn and willing to pay attention. He went on: “I have a certain way of working and there are certain things I expect from my players. I don’t know how previous managers worked, Gerrard worked in a certain way and I’ll work in a certain way. “But I demand that we are playing as a team and that we do everything we can to play as a team, whether it’s defending or attacking. “The players have their tasks on the pitch and they know that because we’ve talked a lot about that over the last couple of days. “So now they need to execute that and make sure we’re ready for Prague.” Tactically too, expect tweaks. Van Bronckhorst may be a true believer in the 4-3-3 formation but his preferred version is different from the one Gerrard rolled out at Rangers over the last three-and-a-half campaigns. While the previous manager liked to talk about deploying all manner of “No.10s”, van Bronckhorst has a reputation for encouraging his wingers to operate the old-fashioned way – on the wing. He said: “I’m here as the new manager. I have certain ways of playing against different systems but you will see a team on Thursday in the system I like to play and also the best system to play against Prague. “I’m a different coach with different ideas and different ways of playing, so you will definitely see some changes.” He’ll also be looking for signs that his new players are on message. Asked yesterday if he wants to see this missing “hunger” return to the collective belly of his squad, he nodded and said: “Yes, of course, because we need that in every game. You have to have that to achieve something. “It’s a home game, a special game in Europe, which are great nights at Ibrox. Of course, with the support of all the fans in the stadium we have to create an atmosphere and an environment in which we play well and win.” Goldson’s brutally honest post- Hampden assessment, though, continues to echo around this camp. It’s hard to imagine those words will not have been playing heavily on the mind of the new man in charge. He added: “Obviously the team wasn’t happy and wasn’t in a good place on Sunday. It was quite an emotional game for the club, going out of the cup. After the game the most important thing is to look forward. “As a player, you need to work hard to keep the hunger, to keep the desire. You have to work hard and that’s what I demand from day one. “So far it’s been really good. The most important thing is to want to be a better player, a better team in the coming days, weeks, months, years.” GIO’S HOLDING OUT FOR ZERO FRoM BacK Page vast improvement from his leaky defence to shut out the away side – and set up a result that will shut up their racist supporters. Sparta’s ground was shut down by UEFA after home fans aimed monkey chants at Monaco players during a Champions League qualifier, only for the governing body to allow 10,000 schoolkids to attend the first group match against Rangers in September. And that game was marred by constant jeering of Ibrox star Glen Kamara, who had been subjected to vile racist abuse during a previous Euro tie with Sparta’s rivals Slavia Prague. The bad blood looks sure to create a powderkeg atmosphere for this winner-takes-all clash but van Bronckhorst has warned his new players not to be distracted from their aim of securing second place in Group A. He said: “We’ve seen a lot of circumstances in the stands, not only in the games we played against Prague but you can see it in football. “It’s definitely a thing we want to get rid of but we also know it’s hard to get rid of. It’s still there. “We have to be focused on the match and make sure we are performing well on the pitch. We have to be fully focused on the thing we want to do and that’s win against Prague.” But after running the rule over his new team for the first time in Sunday’s Hampden thrashing off Hibs, van Bronckhorst is acutely aware Gers will need to tighten up at the back to stand any chance of keeping Sparta at bay. And he insisted that his priority target is to oversee a first clean sheet in all competitions since a 2-0 win over the group’s bottom side Brondby at Ibrox last month. He said: “We must make sure we are defensively much more focused, much more compact. “For me, the defending part of the game is for everyone, so we trained olD gaFFeR Advocaat tactically the last few days to make sure we are well prepared for Prague. “The first thing you want to do, not only in Europe but in every game, is to be defensively solid – to keep the zero – and try to win the game by scoring goals. “That’s the match’s main objective. To defend really well and to make sure we keep the zero.” Tonight’s tie will see the former Feyenoord boss take a bow in front of a packed Ibrox for the first time since his playing days under Dick Advocaat more than 20 years ago. He said: “I’m looking forward to my first game back in the stadium. “It will bring back many good memories of my time as a player and I can’t wait to feel the atmosphere again in the stadium. “But I’m old enough to separate my emotions into the focus I need to perform with the team. “Before the game there might be mixed feelings but once the whistle goes I will be fully focused on my task – to guide the team to victory. “I think they are ready. This is a new start for them as well with me coming in as the new manager. “Of course, they are disappointed from the result at the weekend but all we do is look positively at this next game. “The players worked hard – they look very fresh and sharp and that is what we’ll need against Sparta Prague. “We are very well prepared for the game and we’ll go for a good result at home because we want to still be in Europe after Christmas. That’s our main objective.” al iSN’T HUNgRy To geT iNVolVeD see pages 72&73
