The teenager left home seven weeks ago a relative unknown but after winning the US Open she has returned so famous she is planning to register her name as a trademark. On the lawn outside their home in Bromley, South London, where she practised against the garage during lockdown, Emma, 18, said she was delighted to be reunited with her City trader mum and dad, Renee and Ian. She said: “It’s a great feeling to be back. It’s nice to see my parents again. I haven’t thought about what’s next. I’m just enjoying it and relaxing.” PRoUD Mum Renee Ian said: “I am so happy. I am very proud of her.” Just weeks after getting an A* in maths and an A in economics at A level, his daughter is predicted to become the UK’s first £1billion athlete. Trademark experts have applied in the UK to safeguard “Emma Raducanu”, “Emma” and “Raducanu”, which she could use on her own cosmetics, perfumes, clothing and footwear lines. Her victory on Saturday, achieved without dropping a set in the tournament, won her £1.8million prize money. Emma flew back first class with BA, arriving at Heathrow at 6.30am.

More than 100,000 singleparent households and 11,000 families with disabled children will also see their income slashed. The Tory Government’s uplift in UC, worth over £1000 a year, was a lifeline over the pandemic. However, Boris Johnson is refusing to make the rise permanent and hard-pressed Scots will lose the cash from next month. SNP MSP Neil Gray blasted: “This Tory government’s choice to inflict the biggest overnight cut to social security since World War 2 – hammering people both in and out of work – is a crime against decency. “The sheer scale of misery they will inflict is horrific.” Work and Pensions Secretary Therese Coffey was savaged recently for saying claimants could make up the loss with longer hours. Johnson was also accused of insensitivity after saying he wanted people’s wages to rise “through their efforts”. The Scottish Parliament Information Centre (SPICE) has provided a breakdown of the households receiving the benefit. As of May, the number of people in work who were on UC was 176,935, while the figure for single parents was 104,536. The number of households on UC where the claim included an additional element for a disabled child stood at 11,887 and 33,143 for carers. The figure was 2737 for households with a “limited capability for work” and 63,406 for a “limited capability for work-related activity”. SPICE figures also showed there were 412,916 universal credit households in May. These included 63,339 in Johnson’s snatch of £1k-a-year uplift will hit vulnerable the hardest 104,536 Number of people in work who were single parents 11,887 412,916 Number of families with disabled child Glasgow, 32,022 in Edinburgh, 25,493 in South Lanarkshire and 29,496 in North Lanarkshire. Other research shows that withdrawing the uplift will move around 50,000 people, including 10,000 children, into poverty. Gray added: “It will have a devastating impact on working families, single-parent families, carer families and many others to find or stay in a job, stripping many of the ability to put food on the table or keep warm as we head into winter.” Labour MSP Pam Duncan- Glancy said: “The removal of the £20 uplift is a cruel decision, and it will leave single parents, carers WE NEED EXTRA TIME PAGES 10&11 Number of Universal Credit households across Scotland and disabled people without the money they desperately need. “The Tory government should reverse this unforgivable decision, and the Scottish Government must do more than just sit on its hands or point fingers. It has powers to mitigate this damaging move, and it must use them.” Nina Ballantyne from Citizens Advice Scotland said: “The decision to cut Universal Credit will hit hundreds of thousands of people across Scotland – including people in work.” Meanwhile, the Tory Government has admitted it has not assessed the impact of the cut. The SNP asked the Department of Work and Pensions if any impact assessment had been carried out on the £20 removal. They responded: “The Department has not completed an Impact Assessment of the removal of the UC temporary uplift as it was introduced as a temporary measure.” A UK Government spokesperson said: “The uplift to Universal Credit was always temporary. It was designed to help claimants through the economic shock and financial disruption of the toughest stages of the pandemic, and it has done so.”

Daily Record Friday, September 17, 2021 appeal Gary Stevens Ex-Ger in donor plea for his son by david meikle FORMER Rangers star Gary Stevens has issued an urgent plea for a stem cell donor to come forward for his four-year-old son who is battling cancer. Stevens, 58, now stays in Australia after emigrating with wife Louise and sons Joshua, Oliver and Jack. Last year, the family discovered that Jack had a rare blood cancer. He had been responding well to treatment but has suffered a relapse and will need more chemotherapy. Stevens said: “He was doing so well and the search is back on for a suitable stem cell donor. They used his brother, Oliver, the first time around but we’ve been told that can’t be an option this time.” Stevens pleaded for people to sign up to become a blood donor.

Malcolm McNee has been charged over the killing of John McGregor, 44, in Glasgow’s Milton area on August 26. Prosecutors claim he got out of a vehicle driven by an unknown male in Westray Street with a shotgun or similar item. He is said to have aimed it at unknown persons causing them to flee. McNee allegedly re-entered the car before getting out and presenting the shotgun at McGregor and discharging it and striking him on the body. McNee, of Stirling, made no plea to the murder charge at a private hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court yesterday and was remanded in custody. CALLOUS Aird slapped his tiny dog Archie so hard its skill was fractured A CARE home worker who hit his Chihuahua so hard it died from brain injuries has been banned from keeping a pet for 20 years. David Aird was also fined £420 after admitting hitting tiny Archie and causing a fatal haemorrhage. A post-mortem examination found he died from “blunt force trauma” and could have suffered severe pain. The Chihuahua is the smallest of toy dog breeds and usually weighs up to only three kilograms. Aird, 29, appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court yesterday and pleaded guilty to causing a protected a n i m a l unnecessary suffering. The court heard Aird struck the dog with his fined Aird admitted cruelty Archie suffered a fractured skull, severe brain injury and died after thug whacked him by alan mcewEn hand causing a “severe and extensive haemorrhage in the cranial vault” resulting in significant brain compression. The incident happened at his home in Tranent, East Lothian, on February 3. The court was told Aird did take Archie, a Chihuahua-Jack Russell cross, to a vet for treatment but he died. Fiscal depute Deborah King said a post-mortem examination was later conducted and it found Archie had suffered “blunt force trauma to the top of the skull” from what appeared to be a single blow. King said the examination concluded the injury could have been been caused by something similar to a stick or hammer, or a punch or kick. The prosecutor said the “force to fracture the skull might have rendered the dog unconscious” and that might have been immediate, but this wasn’t certain. She said Archie may have been in pain until falling unconsciousness. Aird, who represented himself, said he was a care home worker. Sheriff Peter McCormack banned him from owning or keeping a pet for 20 years and fined him £420. Scottish SPCA chief inspector Sarah Gregory said: “We are very pleased that David Aird has been given a 20-year ban and fine. “Aird was remorseful and did contact us and a vet for assistance after the incident but this does not diminish the amount of unnecessary suffering Archie was caused. “Aird’s actions were unacceptable and he is ultimately responsible for Archie’s death due to the extent of his injuries.”

The bus, which was meant to bring their Europa League opponents to Ibrox last night, was tagged in offensive graffiti. Rangers ultras are understood to be behind the vandalism. Photos emerged online appearing to show the French team’s bus covered in red, white and blue paint. RFC had also been scrawled on the side with the message “f *** Lyon”. The vehicle was targeted outside the hotel overnight. Rangers supporters branded the behaviour an “utter disgrace”.

Pic: Andy Buchanan/AFP/ Getty Images by viviEnnE AiTKEn & chRis MccAll THE Armed Forces are being called in to help tackle Scotland’s worsening ambulance service crisis. Nicola Sturgeon made the shock announcement yesterday as she apologised “unreservedly” to patients for the long delays and pledged extra cash to resolve the issue. The SNP leader acted after the Daily Record highlighted patients waiting hours for paramedics to reach them – then forced into further logjams as ambulances wait outside hard-pressed A&E departments. Sturgeon faced tough questions at Holyrood from opposition politicians who said problems of low morale and understaffing among ambulance crews were being reported before the pandemic began last year. MSPs raised two examples of how Scots are suffering as a result of the growing ambulances waiting times. The Record reported yesterday how Lilian Briggs, 86, was forced to wait eight hours for an ambulance after falling and suffering a double hip fracture. The First Minister was also asked about the case of Gerard Brown, 65, of Glasgow, who died after a 40-hour wait for an ambulance. His relatives were told the delay had cost the former engineer his life. Labour leader Anas Sarwar asked the First Minister: “How many more Lilian Briggs need to happen in the next week before you take urgent action? How many Gerard Browns need to happen?” An apologetic Sturgeon told MSPs: “Our ambulance service is working under acute pressure right now, largely due to Covid.” She went on: “I apologise unreservedly to anyone who has suffered or who is suffering unacceptably long waits.” As well as approving additional funding to support recruitment she said other actions were “under active consideration”. Sturgeon went on: “I can confirm this includes consideration of seeking targeted military assistance to help deal with short-term pressure points. “Such assistance is already being provided to ambulance services in England. “Of course, we have had military assistance for other aspects of the pandemic in the last 18 months.” Pressed by Sarwar on when the dailyrecord.co.uk facebook.com/TheSco tishDailyRecord Thursday, sepTember 16, 2021 scoTland’s champion twi ter.com/Daily_Record an Gran, 86, trapped for EXCLUSIVE ayr Gold cup FesTVal DAY ONE 8-PAGE PUNTER ambulance 8 hours waiting for ambulance Lilian left in agony on kitchen floor after hip fracture fall 16-paGe picTure pullouT leAG gran Lilian an ambulance to Last night, 86-yearold Lilian’s son Robert demanded urgent action to sort out Scotland’s 999 crisis.

This isn’t about the pandemic. There were problems before it. “This is an avoidable human tragedy on a heart-breaking scale. “Pandemic or no pandemic, there’s a simple truth – no one should be left to die on the floor while waiting 40 hours for an ambulance. Our NHS staff, paramedics, and call handlers are being failed too.” He added: “Things are so bad that the British Red Cross has been drafted in to deliver humanitarian aid at Glasgow’s flagship hospital.” Tory leader Douglas Ross backed calling in the Army and called for a major incident to be declared. He said: “Systemic failures are leaving ambulance crews to turn up and pronounce people dead, instead of having a chance of saving a life. For foR Revealing TRUTh place to get it into the public domain.” McNamee welcomed that the military were being brought in to “give us a bit of respite”. But he said: “I am hugely frustrated it has taken so long for the Government to recognise the delays and the impact they have on people’s suffering.” We told last month how a man of 94 died in the driveway of his home after waiting four-and-ahalf hours for an ambulance. We also revealed that stroke victim Helena Walker, 67, waited eight hours for an ambulance before spending eight more on a trolley in a hospital corridor. In the last week we told how the Red Cross had been drafted in to provide aid to waiting paramedics and patients. Paramedics also told us of two weeks in a row, Nicola Sturgeon has been in denial that our NHS is in crisis.” The Ministry of Defence confirmed it had spoken to SNP ministers. A spokesperson said: “The MoD has received a request from the Scottish Government under the Military Aid to Civilian Authority process. “We are working hard to identify where we can most effectively assist other government departments and civil authorities.” their frustrations and a week ago the Unite union called on the Scottish Ambulance Service to declare a major incident as the average waiting time rose to six hours. Unite also called for pop-up wards in marquees to be set up to allow paramedics to return to 999 pick-ups. Pressured GPs ‘may soon quit’ DOCTORS could be at risk of quitting if pressures on them are not addressed, the British Medical Association has warned. Dr Andrew Buist, chair of the BMA’s GP committee said GPs were under “immense pressure”, which risked “catastrophic” staff resignations. He said there was already a lack of GPs in Scotland and blasted suggestions for a timetable or target to increase face-toface consultation. Dr Buist added: “GPs have been working flat out throughout the pandemic and – contrary to some messaging – have continued to see patients face-to-face where it is clinically appropriate following an initial telephone consultation. “Believe me, every GP appreciates the frustration the general public feel and we are doing all we can to see as many patients as possible in the manner in which is most clinically appropriate. “But there needs to be honest and real messaging from all politicians about the capacity, time and the challenges and pressures that all doctors are facing right now.” cRiTical The man arrives at hospital in the van Soup staff took man to A&E in a van By claiRe galloway VOLUNTEERS had to rush a critically ill man to hospital themselves after being told of a long wait for an ambulance. The Project Scotland workers were afraid the homeless man was dying from an overdose when they called 999 at 9.30pm on Wednesday near their soup stall on Glasgow’s Argyle Street. But after being told no ambulance was available for three-and-a-half hours the volunteers rushed the man to hospital in the back of their outreach van. When the ambulance service finally called back to say paramedics were on the way, it was 5.15am the next morning – more than seven hours later. Charity chairman Colin McInnes revealed the man was given two naloxone pens but when they failed to work, and his pulse was very weak, they called 999 to be told of the long wait. He said: “We have 30 minutes from giving that man naloxone to getting him medical help, so we decided we’d lift him into the van and rush him to the Royal Infirmary. “The paramedics checked the guy there and he was unresponsive and a nurse brought a bed out from resus before they took him away into A&E. “If we hadn’t got that man to hospital, I believe he would have died.” The Scottish Ambulance Service said: “We are really sorry for the delay. We are currently facing significant, sustained pressure and extremely high demand.” The Scottish Government blamed “the global pandemic and its multiple knock-on effects” for the “extreme pressure” the ambulance service is under.

Page 8 MoRe aT DailyRecoRD.co.UK Daily RecoRD Friday, September 17, 2021 RecoRd View Crisis could not be ignored any longer FIRST Minister Nicola Sturgeon has called in the Army to help tackle the ambulance crisis – a week after the Daily Record highlighted the need for such a move. She also apologised “unreservedly” to patients who have had to suffer extraordinarily long waits to get the urgent assistance they need. Yesterday, we told how 86-year-old Lilian Briggs waited eight hours for an ambulance on a hard floor after suffering a double fracture to her hip. And the family of Gerard Brown, 65, told how medics have told them his 40-hour wait for an ambulance cost him his life. Sturgeon was forced to call in the military as ambulances backed up outside hospitals, preventing paramedics from providing emergency treatment to those who need it most. The First Minister has said the pandemic is partly to blame for the crisis. But unions – whose members are on the frontline – point out that Covid-19 has only exposed the underlying problems already there. Trade union Unite told last week how they feared lives would be lost if the situation wasn’t tackled immediately. They called for major incident status to be activated as waiting times rose to an average of six hours. They said this would enable the Army to be brought in to help out. It took several more days of the Daily Record highlighting cases of lengthy patient waits, ambulances lined up at hospitals and even the Red Cross being drafted into one hospital before the Government finally acted.

The extra cash boosted family incomes and provided added security during the pandemic. It was also long overdue as the Tories had always under-funded their flagship welfare policy. But true to form, they are living up to their reputation as the nasty party by refusing to make the uplift permanent. The lifeline increase will be withdrawn from next month – a cruel and callous act. New figures show that nearly 180,000 working Scots will be affected, as will over 100,000 single parents.

A freedom of information request submitted to Public Health Scotland (PHS) shows that 1455 schools in Scotland recorded a positive case between August 16 and August 27, the first two weeks of term. According to Scottish Government figures in December, there are 5063 schools registered in the country. PHS data also shows nearly 15 per cent of cases during the same time period could be linked to an educational setting, although higher education had not yet returned during the time the data covers. A total of 8,113 positive cases during the first two weeks of term reported having been in an educational setting. Most don’t see office return SEVEN in ten Brits do not feel a return to full-time office working is on the cards post-pandemic, a survey shows. The majority of those questioned by YouGov said they would favour to either work from home full-time, or have a hybrid arrangement. But the poll, commissioned by the BBC, also found concern from leaders that creativity and collaboration could suffer if employees stayed at home. In June, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he expected to see a “gradual return to work over the summer”, but the Westminster Government did not rule out a return to mandatory home working in its Covid-19 Autumn and Winter Plan. Long Covid in kids over by 12 weeks BY MaRK waghoRn LONG Covid in children rarely lasts more than 12 weeks, research has shown. The most common symptoms are headache, fatigue, sleep disturbance, concentration difficulties and abdominal pain. It was “reassuring” that the issue may be less of a concern than in adults, say paediatricians. Lead author Professor Nigel Curtis, of the University of Melbourne, said: “The low risk posed by acute disease means one of the key benefits of vaccination of children and adolescents might be to protect them from long Covid.” Children with Covid-19 usually have mild symptoms or none at all. But the risk and features of Long Covid were poorly understood. All 12 to 15 year olds in the UK are to be offered a jab. we need League boss Doncaster calls for a light-touch approach of spot checks amid fears over stewards’ workload BY ToM eDen Fans going to football may only be subjected to vaccine passport spot checks rather than everyone having to prove their vaccination status, John swinney has said. The Deputy First Minister said the Government was considering checks on a selection of fans when vaccine passports comes into force. Swinney, who is also Covid Recovery Secretary, told Holyrood’s Covid-19 Committee talks with football authorities were ongoing but he expected a “proportionate approach” when checking vaccine certification at large events. It followed a plea from SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster for a “light-touch approach of spot checking” rather than all fans having to show their vaccine passport to gain entry to grounds. Under the Scottish Government’s plans, proof of being double vaccinated is needed at indoor seated events of 500 people or more, unseated outdoor live events with more than 4,000, and “any event, of any nature, which has more than 10,000 people in attendance”. Doncaster, a member of Scottish football’s Covid-19 joint response group, estimated that the additional stewarding required to check the vaccines will cost clubs £5,000 for every match. He said scanning everyone’s QR codes would be a “reliance on technology which will be untried and untested – certainly at its introduction on October 1”. Giving evidence to the committee, Doncaster added: “Given the huge variation in IT infrastructure across stadia, we believe very strongly that a visual check is the way forward here so that stewards can visually check what passports are presented eviDence SPFL chief Neil Doncaster, below, told John Swinney, left, clubs may struggle with tech to them rather than any insistence on a particular type of technological check.” Scottish Conservative MSP Murdo Fraser raised concerns about how the vaccine passport system would work at football grounds and “whether spot checks will be deemed sufficient”. He said: “One of the issues is the practicality of stewarding football grounds. “Everybody knows there are issues in the labour market at the moment – trying to recruit the levels of stewards that will be required to make this system credible is a real challenge for clubs, notwithstanding the cost implications.” Swinney replied: “We are aware of the labour market challenges, they are visible to all of us, and the challenges about the availability of stewards are well documented, so I don’t in any way, shape or form dispute that point – I accept that. Hence the rationale within the Government’s paper that we published last week, where we indicated that there was a necessity for organisers to take ‘reasonable measures’, and there was likely to be a proportionate approach in different settings between a crowd of 200 versus a crowd of 60,000. “So we envisage that there will have to be differential approaches.” Reiterating that the measures could help increase vaccination numbers, he added: “The more we can do – even though it may not be a check on absolutely everybody that attends a football game – the more we can do to make these events safer, and less likely to be the place in which the virus is transmitted, the more we are contributing to the suppression of the virus.” Swinney avoided answering a question about whether the planned October 1 start date could be pushed back to give businesses more time to prepare, but insisted the system being developed was “very, very strong”. He added: “It’s absolutely vital that the scheme that we put in place is able to work effectively.”

The event at Glasgow Green took place before the planned introduction of vaccine passports, which will be needed for entry to nightclubs and larger events from October 1. Up to 50,000 music fans a day attended the three-day festival and had to provide proof of a negative NHS Covid-19 lateral flow test to be allowed in. Professor Leitch, Scotland ‘s national clinical director, said TRNSMT checked every single person and the process appeared to have gone “very smoothly”, but said talks are ongoing about the by PeTeR DaviDson logistics of checking vaccine passports at events like football matches. Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) chief executive Neil Doncaster revealed he is “concerned” about the practicalities of delivering the scheme and said spot-checking is the only way it can be done. Just days after the introduction of passports around 50,000 people will cram into Hampden for a World Cup qualifier against Israel. Professor Leitch said that spotchecks are “not a ridiculous idea” and that they are one option, while staggered entry is another. Speaking on the BBC’s Good Morning Scotland, he said: “TRNSMT tested every single person and they checked every single person, we had some meetings earlier in the week to debrief about how that had gone and it had gone very smoothly, now that is relatively simple visual check of an app or an email or a test, so it’s not impossible but we do need to work out what Neil’s saying, “Sixty-thousand people at Hampden all arriving at once, that does create some logistical difficulties. Spot-checks is not a ridiculous idea but we just need to get the balance right don’t we, between checking 60,000 and checking six, so somewhere in there is probably a sweet spot.” He said that authorities do not want to make attending football or rugby matches a chore, but that with more than 4,000 cases a day and 30 deaths reported on Wednesday such measures are necessary. Professor Leitch added: “Inconvenience is one of the things we’ve had for 18 months and inconvenience is going to continue until we can get on top of this wave.” He also said there were no signs the music festival or the return of students to further education has led to a big rise in cases. He said: “We’ve got no signs of TRNSMT causing us big levels of infection and I would have expected that to start to come through by now, although it is early days.”

There’s tension in the air.. Andrew’s not so blasé now High Court to serve sex case papers accUseR Andrew with Virginia when she was a teen gone Prince Philip died aged 99 There’s been a dramatic shift in mood.. the issue has become very pressing A SOURCE On THE ATmOSpHERE AROUnd pRinCE AndREw Phil’s will stays secret THE contents of Prince Philip’s will are to remain secret following a High Court ruling. After the death of a senior royal it has been convention for over a century that a bid to seal the will is made to the president of the court’s family division. This means they are not open to public inspection in the way one ordinarily is. President of the Family Division of the High Court Sir Andrew McFarlane yesterday ordered Philip’s remains sealed for 90 years. Even after that it may only be opened in private. Sir Andrew said: “There is a claiMs Prince at Balmoral this week need to enhance the protection afforded to truly private aspects of the lives of this limited group of individuals in order to maintain the dignity of close members of her family.” Prince Philip died aged 99 on April 9, just two months short of his 100th birthday. just last week Prince Andrew was convinced that he would easily beat Virginia Giuffre’s sex allegations against him. But sources have revealed his bullish mood has changed after the High Court announced on Monday that it will act to serve US civil case papers on him. And the Duke of York is now bracing himself for a legal battle that he fears could go on for years and end up costing him millions of pounds. Giuffre, a former sex slave of late paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, has accused Andrew, 61, of forcing her to sleep with him three times when she was 17, a claim he strenuously denies. Legal experts have predicted that she could be awarded around £14million if she wins. Our sister paper The Mirror revealed last week the Prince was so confident the case would collapse he planned to return to royal duties. But insiders revealed that he is now giving off a different vibe. One source said: “He’s not been his usual blasé self, acting like everything is in hand. “The issue has suddenly become very pressing and there is a distinct tension in the air. “There has been a dramatic shift in mood and the reality that this could not only go on for many months, if not years, as well as costing potentially millions of pounds is very real.” Another insider added: “The stark reality is that the Duke and his team need to face the fact they need to address this.” Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies said: “We are hopeful that Prince Andrew will now stop trying to evade and delay facing his accuser in court. “The bottom line is that Andrew is being served. He cannot refuse.” In another blow for Andrew, the High Court judge refused to unseal a document that the Prince’s lawyers claim would invalidate Giuffre’s claim. The document, signed by his accuser, allegedly prevents her from suing. But Andrew will now have to make a legal request for a copy and that would £14m Amount Virginia Giuffre could make if she wins sex claim against Prince exclusIVe by RUssell MyeRs then mean accepting that he has been served the lawsuit.

Once served, his legal team would have 21 days to respond. A US judge this week dismissed claims that Andrew could not respond to the suit launched by Giuffre as he had not received the documents despite them being left with a policeman at his Windsor home. Lewis A Kaplan has listed the case for a further hearing on October 17.

Former ballerina Arielle, 33, learned to dance at Knightswood Secondary school and was overcome with nostalgia when she enjoyed a summer break with her boyfriend George. And she also brought him up to speed on the gang culture in the city. Arielle, who is currently DJing in Ibiza with David Guetta, said: “I drove up when everything reopened in July to see my wee sister who works in the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Glasgow during the pandemic. It was a road trip with George. I took him round Drumchapel, Knightswood and Temple. “We went to Drumchapel for our holidays and saw all the sights. For me it was a real trip down memory lane. “I told George all about the Young Knightswood Fleeto, the Temple Scurvy and the Yoker Langy. “I wasn’t part of any of that but I went out with a boy who was a member of the Yoker Langy. “I was like, ‘This is where I went to high school, this is where I used to get the 44 bus up the road.’” Arielle also revealed her “old-fashioned courtship” with George that led to love. She said: “George is from down south and we met a couple of years ago when I was DJing for Craig David in Ibiza but we were never in London at the same time. He does events and travels a lot and I work weird hours during the week and DJ weekends. Then we started by JoHN DiNgwall courting during lockdown. It was really romantic dating because all we could do was go for walks and cycles. Nothing was open and it was like an old-school romance. “We’d meet up, have our walk, have a flask of coffee and walk along by the canal. I kind of miss that. “We’ve managed to make it last out of lockdown so far.” Arielle’s career is flying after she announced last month she’d been offered a permanent slot as early breakfast presenter on BBC Radio 1 weekends. Her successful Love Island: The Morning After podcast, which she co-hosted with ex-Islander Kem Cetinay, ranked as one of iTunes’ top 100 shows this year. Harry Potter fans may remember her as one of the Beauxbatons dancers in 2005 boy wizard flick The Goblet of Fire. Currently, the red-head is on the airwaves from 4am until 7am weekdays come rain or shine. And she’s developed a coping mechanism. She said: “I am the queen of disco naps.

And it helped her to see more of her home city than ever before. She said: “We cycled around. What I loved about OVO is I went to places I’d never been before. We went around this green route map they have created. It can be daunting getting on a bike if you haven’t cycled around the city, but there are cycle avenues everywhere now.

She said: “It could be risky because I don’t know what the weather will be like. Hopefully the tent will still be standing at the end.

Daily RecoRD Friday, September 17, 2021 MoRe aT DailyRecoRD.co.UK Page 17 habiTaTS iS UNdEr ThrEaT Rainforest SOS.. here in Scotland Charity warns native woods at risk from climate change chaMPion Malcolm is working to save forest the UK’s rainforests are nearing crisis point, with Scotland’s at particular risk. The Trust’s State of the UK’s Woods and Trees 2021 report said the area was “as important as tropical rainforest, but even rarer”. Native woods and trees help curb carbon emissions and reverse declines in wildlife. And failing to address the Magical Mists over the woodland problems they face will undermine efforts to tackle the climate and nature crises, the charity warned. It said the impact of climate change on woodland life cycles, pests, diseases, pollution and the slow rate of woodland expansion could be a “multiple whammy” for wildlife. Malcolm told how the insectr i c h habitat at t h e B e n Shieldaig Estate rainforest attracts migrant birds such as pied flycatchers, wood warblers and redstarts. The rare, chequered skipper butterfly is also only found here. He explained how the mosses and liverworts – tiny plants that produce spores instead of flowers and seeds – play a hugely important role in the health of our environment. He said: “Scotland is home to nearly 1000 different types of these plants which grow on the woodland floor and on tree branches. Some are not found anywhere else in the world. “They provide homes to tiny creatures and together they also act as a giant sponge, slowing the flow of rain into burns and rivers, and helping protect against flash floods.” As well as the threat from climate change, about 40 per cent of the rainforest vows to be able to say: I did all I could which is aimed at saving the planet. William said: “The damage we are doing is no longer incremental but exponential. We are fast reaching a tipping point.” Ahead of the release of Earthshot: How to Save Our Planet – a book tied in with the Earthshot Prize – Jason Knauf, chief of The Royal Foundation, said: “The challenge the duke set himself was, ‘What is the maximum contribution I can make in the next 10 years in the fight against climate change? What am I going to do that means I can look my children in the eye and say that I did my bit?’.” The project has a £50million prize fund which will be handed out over the next decade. Every year from now until 2030, a winner in each of five categories will receive £1million after being picked by a judging panel. It is hoped the ideas will help to repair the planet. Ahead of the announcement today of this year’s 15 finalists, William has paid tribute to his father Prince Charles and late grandfather Prince Philip, calling them “pioneers in the environmental movement”. William also said he hopes the Earthshot project will inspire hope. He said: “The facts look terrifying and I could see this risked making people feel like they might as well give up.” Where to find UK rainforests ausewell Woods, Ashburton, Devon Ben Shieldaig estate, Strathcarron, Scotland Bovey Valley Woods, Newton Abbot, Devon coed Felenrhyd & llennyrch, Gwynedd, Wales crinan Wood, Argyll, Scotland Dunollie Wood, Oban, Scotland Fingle Woods, Dartmouth National Park, Devon loch arkaig Pine Forest, Lochaber, Scotland, Uig Wood, Isle of Skye, Scotland is suffering high or very high levels of grazing, largely due to deer. Invasive rhododendron is also found in 40 per cent of rainforest, threatening to choke the woodland. But the Woodland Trust said “it is not too late to take action”. Together with Plantlife, it leads The Alliance for Scotland’s Rainforest, which hopes to address the threats, as well as working with landowners to restore and expand woodlands. Abi Bunker, director of conservation and external affairs for the Woodland Trust, said: “The warning signs are loud and clear. “If we don’t tackle the threats that are facing our woods and trees, we will severely damage the UK’s ability to address the climate and nature crises. “Our wildlife havens are suffering and we are storing up problems for future generations.”

Daily Record Friday, September 17, 2021 MORE AT DailyRecord.CO.UK It’s better not to know what lies ahead I HAVE just emerged from the 9/11 YouTube rabbit-hole. I’m sure you’ve ventured down there on occasion, too. It’s very grim, isn’t it? This year, as commentary on the 20th anniversary dominated media, I became slightly obsessed with the more morbid aspects of the attacks. Flight simulations which chart the planes from take-off to impact, scored by air-traffic controller recordings. Desperate phone-calls made from the upper-floors, moments before the towers collapsed. One in particular which sticks in my mind reveals a terrified New Yorker being advised to pray by an emergency call handler. There are, of course, the countless stories of heroism and bravery. But even the now infamous storming of the cockpit of United 93 by courageous passengers moments before it crashed is a gruelling horror story – if you really look into it. I didn’t emerge from the rabbit-hole with a sense of gratitude for what I have, or the urge to tell people I loved them. I was struck by the terrible reality that no matter what we might have planned when we leave the house in the morning, we truly have absolutely no idea what awaits us as we walk out the door. And I think it’s better that way. Page 19 loki the scottish rapper darren mcgarvey twitter@lokiscottishrap So sneer and yet so far.. the left-wingers’ comfort zone MESSAGE Ocasio- Cortez in her ‘tax the rich’ dress at the Met Gala ball DRESS for success, or so the saying goes. US Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) took that quite literally this week. Sporting an elegant get-up at the ultra-exclusive, $30,000-dollars-aplate Met Gala ball, the celebrity socialite…sorry…socialist, mingled with the rich and famous in a stunning gown with a daring “Tax the Rich” call-to-action emblazoned down the rear of her outfit. AOC’s apparent aim as she graced the red carpet was to raise the topic of wealth-redistribution – a radical concept whereby those who can afford to fund their own space programs should be expected to contribute more to the public purse. But it also raised interesting questions about the circular firing squad of the political left generally. It is on the left that you’ll find some of the harshest criticisms of AOC. On the far-left in the States, she is regarded widely as a sell-out. This, of course, should surprise no one. For many left-wing radicals, principles come before power. Even if that means never mounting a successful local campaign. Or standing for election. Or anyone ever knowing who you are, what you do or what you believe. Your politics are validated, not by public endorsement, but by using social media as a sneer dispensary Revellers’ boozefest where you grow increasingly confident in a certain simplistic view of the world, comforted by the certain knowledge you’ll never get close enough to power for your theories to be tested. The satisfaction for this kind of grumpy leftist comes not from trying to change anything but from finding opportunities to be sarcastic about other people’s attempts to change things. Anyone who manages to professionalise their politics, or becomes moderately well-known, is regarded as a grifter. Indeed, the fact AOC was even elected to Congress raises eyebrows on parts of the left automatically, for in order to be regarded as credible in the eyes of many a chin-stroker you must first demonstrate, beyond all doubt, that you are politically futureless. AOC’s public profile and knowing flirtations with the press are, for STAGING a music festival called TRNSMT during a pandemic requires a commendable level of character – or in Glasgow’s case, alcohol. Tens of thousands stared Covid in the face last weekend for a chance to pay £50 for a pint of Carling in a plastic container. No doubt a few anti-vaxxers were “jabbed” too. some, evidence that she has been effectively co-opted, and that her primary function is to provide the Democratic Party (and capitalism), with a leftish veneer. You wouldn’t catch Bernie Sanders (a millionaire) hanging out with rich people. That is, unless you were at Obama’s last White House Correspondents’ gig, or Joe Biden’s inauguration. Both being primary locations around which the proletariat are known to congregate. If making money or being famous corrupts you automatically, then why are intellectual rock stars like Noam Chomsky and Slavoj Zizek held up by so many as paragons of integrity and virtue? AOC is not in the easiest position ever. Even by making the statement with the dress she was then accused of pulling attention from the Black Lives Matter protest going on outside the venue – a protest which happens every year that has never drawn media attention. She is, of course, not the first person to make a literal political fashion statement. From abolitionists in the 18th century, to AIDS campaigners and anti-war activists in the 80s and 90s, political movements often utilise clothing or accessories as a means of generating visibility. I agree AOC is not going to be firing the starting gun of the revolution. But does that mean she is of no value in the struggle for equality? My view is that some on the left would do well to consider their own public relations strategies. Because if you are genuinely serious about radically reforming everyone and everything else in the world, you yourself might dare to try something new – like lightening up a bit. UNINSPIRING Liz Truss has been appointed foreign secretary BoJo’s hapless cabinet BORIS Johnson’s cabinet reshuffle (which appeared to act as somewhat of a distraction from the debate about cutting Universal Credit) was about the most exciting thing to happen this week – if your life is extremely tedious. The hapless Dominic Raab was punished for staying on holiday during the fall of Kabul by being allowed to remain in government and also made deputy prime minister. Ministerial code-breaker and resident hawk Priti Patel is to remain minister for scaring immigrants. While Michael Gove received a pat on the back for historic racist, classist and misogynistic comments he made in the 90s by being put in charge of Johnson’s “levelling up” agenda – something “toothless northerners” will be extremely happy about. The reshuffle was at least comprehensive. The list of appointments is almost as large as the search results produced if you Google “stupid things Liz Truss has said in the last 45 minutes”.

Tributes pour in following death of trailblazer behind home computer Home computing pioneer Sir Clive Sinclair has died at the age of 81. His daughter Belinda Sinclair revealed that the pocket calculator trailblazer and brains behind the Spectrum home computers died at his home in London yesterday morning. Sir Clive Sinclair launched the first affordable consumer computer in 1980, costing less than £100. The multimillionaire entrepreneur’s company launched the ZX models in a decade where personal computer use boomed. Sinclair became the first company in the world to sell more than a million computers, making Sir Clive’s surname a household word. His daughter said: “He was a rather amazing person. Of course, he was so clever and he was always interested in everything. “My daughter and her husband are engineers so he’d be chatting engineering with them.” Sir Clive’s projects also saw him explore new technology in the worlds of television and cars. One ill-fated initiative was the Sinclair C5 vehicle, an electric tricycle heralded as the future of eco-friendly transport but which turned out to be an expensive flop. Born in 1940, Sir Clive left school at the age of 17, becoming a technical journalist writing specialist manuals. Aged 22, he formed Sinclair Radionics, his first company, making mail order radio kits, including the smallest transistor radio in the world. Later in life, he pioneered the pocket calculator and was dubbed an “electronics wizard”. Other ventures included expansions into digital watches and the development of the world’s smallest television set. It was with another company, Sinclair Research, that Sir Clive found his home computing successes. He was so clever and was always interested in everything daughter belinda on her dad sir clive by record reporter The ZX 81 computer, launched in 1981, sold half a million and was followed by more powerful models. Film director Edgar Wright paid tribute to Sir Clive’s computing achievements on Twitter. He tweeted: “For someone whose first glimpses of a brave new world were the terrifying graphics of 3D Monster Maze on the ZX81, I’d like to salute tech pioneer Sir Clive Sinclair. “He made 21st Century dreams feel possible. Will bash away on the rubber keys of a Spectrum in your honour. RIP.” Tom Watson, former deputy leader of the Labour Party, tweeted: “Arguably, the digital age for us in the UK started with the Sinclair ZX80, when thousands of kids learnt to code using 1k of RAM. “For us, the Spectrum was like a Rolls- Royce with 48k.”

Ashley Roberts, 29, of Huddersfield, Yorkshire, was training William Peace, 59, and Richard Heppell before they were due to dive 148ft to the wreck of a U74E German submarine off Dunbar, East Lothian. He decided both men should take part in a free diving session rather than an official training dive. Roberts instructed both men to complete an assessment dive and the trio descended 43ft in July 2017. The instructor returned to the surface but Peace, 59, and Heppell continued to the seabed and got into trouble.

The Bake Off star turned TV chef revealed he was pleasantly surprised by the response. John, 32, said: “The reaction has been so positive. I genuinely did think I was going to receive a fair bit of hate in my inbox because you do as a gay man, you get a lot of hate. It’s something you grow up and you learn to deal with. “Shouldn’t have to, but we do. And I can honestly say that I haven’t had a single message of negativity.” The enormity of PaiRiNg what John was doing Johannes struck him as he spoke to & Quentin Matt Lucas on Radio 2 to reveal he was going to be a Strictly contestant. He said: “I realised how important a step forward this is. “Because kids who watch the show, to have same sex role models, it’ll give them a little bit of hope for the future. It won’t make them grow up with the same shame that I grew up with. “It’s not just about queer people. It’s about intimacy generally. Two men, whether they’re straight or gay, can be intimate with each other. I hope this comes to show that it breaks down that notion of toxic masculinity, which is so rife, especially in Britain. “If you look at Europe, people are much more intimate with each other there. So why can’t we have that here?” On this weekend’s Strictly launch celebs will be paired with their pro partners. And John is hoping he gets South African Johannes Radebe, who danced with Caroline Quentin last year. He said: “It has to be Johannes. It’d be really important for him to have the first all-male couple, it would be a really powerful message for him as well. That’s not to say in the future it has to be two gay men.” John told how he is looking forward most to dances that are filled with passion. He said: “I want to learn a really intense samba and really go for it. Or a rumba. “I want to do the queerest outfits possible. I want mesh. I want sequins. I want everything on the show basically. I want to be as glamorous as possible.” John, who won Bake Off in 2012, said he has no fear of criticism from the judges.

Margaret Dempster thought partner Brian, 61, was fatigued from working as a cleaner. But medics told her his excessive yawning signalled he was suffering a life-threatening stroke.

I thought he was just tired but then it turned out to be much more serious. “The paramedics said that the yawning meant he was having a stroke.

And now she has to deal with “ageist, misogynist” comments as an older pregnant female in the third series of Netflix’s Sex Education which begins streaming from today. The 53-year-old stars as sex therapist Dr Jean F Milburn, whose son Otis (Asa Butterfield) struggles with her job but often asks for relationship and sex advice in the brutally honest series about horny teens. At the end of series two, viewers discovered that Jean was pregnant with Jakob Nyman’s baby, despite Jakob (Mikael Persbrandt) having had a vasectomy. The new series opens with her seven months pregnant. Gillian – who has three children of her own, daughter Piper, 26, with her first husband and sons Oscar, 14, and Felix, 12, with a former partner – said: “We find her struggling with how to share that information with Jakob. “Jean is stressed as it is with being pregnant in her late 40s, and navigating the judgment she gets from people – she fields some ageist, misogynist comments this season that are quite surprising to her. “It’s a real hurdle for Jean and a real hurdle that Playing older mum was an Gillian Anderson talks about role as therapist, who faces misogyny and ageism in latest series of Netflix smash women face in real life.” The storyline was inspired by creator Laurie Nunn’s own mum, who had her siblings when she was older. Nunn said: “I was really interested in exploring the judgment from society that women face when they have babies later in life. “I watched my mum deal with similar experiences. Women still have to justify the choices we make about our own bodies.” It’s not the first time Gillian has played a character who becomes pregnant despite life being complicated enough. In the seventh series of The X-Files, she found out she was pregnant with partner Mulder’s (David Duchovny) baby as he was abducted by aliens. In the second series of the show’s reboot in 2018, Scully found she was expecting again – at the age of 54.

She said: “The level of detail they put into this belly was so amazing that they even included a little dark spot to mimic my o l d b e l l y button ring piercing.” Gillian went from filming the fourth series of The Crown as Margaret Thatcher back to playing Jean in Sex We’re ready to have a proper conversation about sex BRITAIN is ready to talk about sex, reckons Scots actor Ncuti Gatwa. The break-out star of Sex Education, 28, who was born in Rawanda and brought up in Edinburgh and Dunfermline, said: “We’re expanding so many conversations regarding gender and sexuality and I think Sex Education just ACCLAIM Ncuti A real hurdle for Jean that women face in real life PRAISE Gillian as Thatcher He laughed: “Blocking a sex scene with someone while remaining two metres apart? There were new breath mints this year, which was very exciting.” In the third series Eric travels to Nigeria, where homosexuality is illegal, for a family wedding. Ncuti said: “I’m not Nigerian, so I felt very strongly that this aspect of his story had to be done authentically. When I was 15, I went back to Rwanda for the first time after leaving when I was a kid, and touching the soil there and knowing that this is where I come from, these are my roots, was such a powerful moment for me.

Her portrayal of the former Conservative Prime Minister was lauded and has won a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award . She is up for an Emmy at this Sunday’s awards ceremony in the outstanding support actress in a drama series category. If she wins, it’ll be her second Emmy – 24 years after she won for her role as Dana Scully in The X-Files. The success of her Thatcher characterisation is down to her making sure she put to one side any pre-judgments on her part or worries about what people thought about the divisive leader. She added: “You really just have to focus on the framework of the story and within that try and stay true to the human being.” But playing such a character was difficult to shake. Gillian said: “It might just be me, but I think there were definitely a couple of moments where it felt like Margaret Thatcher snuck into Jean a little bit — mostly just facial expressions I hope!” For Sex Education fans there is a surprising final scene with Jean which shocked Gillian. She said: “I think I gasped when I first read it. “But you’ve got to keep Jean interesting, right? “And this ending will make for good future scenes and good future conflicts.” ● The third series of Sex Education starts streaming on Netflix from today. yoUNgeR yeaRS Ncuti

The singer, married to model Penny Lancaster, told how he had drawn from his own colourful love life to write the song. Speaking on BBc Radio Two, he said: “The story behind the song is you, know when you break up with somebody and the sex was amazing and you just want to do it one more time? “That’s what the song is about. it’s happened to all of us, i’m sure. “The songs are more or less life stories. “Unfortunately, a lot of them have got to do with love and sex on this album. Well not unfortunately, that’s the way i was feeling.” celtic fan Sir Rod said his favourite track on the album, Touchline, was a footballinspired tribute to his Edinburgh-born dad Robert. He said: “He was always on the touchline watching me and my brothers play in the same team. “He would always be there on the touchline in the pouring rain and shouting abuse and advice. “now i find that i do that with my sons and hopefully my sons will do it with their sons.

INSIDE Strictly bargain grub for night in front of box 32&33 MoRe aT DailyRecoRD.co.UK PLUS daily record 17.09.2021 Dance legends Orbital all set for Scots fest 36&37 life. Page 31 ediTed By SaLLy mcLEaN Deborah Mitchell massages the jowls and manipulates the jaws of some of the most famous faces in the world. Victoria Beckham, Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow, Claudia Schiffer and even Simon Cowell all trust her with their skin concerns. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, whose peachy complexion belies her 74 years, is a devotee and friend. Kate Middleton had one of Deborah’s famous bee venom facials just days before her wedding. It’s hard to imagine Deborah, 55, whose mother’s family is from Coatbridge, padding around the palace or swapping red carpet gossip with the AAA list. Her family left Lanarkshire and moved to Telford. Deborah, who is dyslexic, was bullied at school and suffered from severe acne. Now she has built a multi-million-pound business from her kitchen table beauty products – but without adding the airs and graces that the applier of the royal face pack might be expected to pick up. “I want my brand Heaven to be accessible to anyone,” she said on a recent visit to Glasgow. “That’s why it’s packaged at all price points. You can buy 10mls and feel really special. “It’s exactly the same cream that the top celebrities use. It’s not available everywhere, you have to buy it in an approved salon or directly from us.” Heaven products are certainly not pocket money prices but, in the bonkers world of super-luxe skincare, they are far from the priciest lotions and potions available. The entry-level bee venom mask, suitable for people whose skins are not yet used to being frozen by Deborah’s organic answer to Botox, is £86.50. This does rise to £352 for the most potent mask, which sounds like madness until you compare it to brands like Creme de la Mer, where a pot of mere moisturiser can cost £300. Abeetoxin, the ingredient that makes customers reach for their credit cards, was inspired by Deborah’s sister’s hives. After much trial and error, she came up with a mix of bee venom, Manuka honey and botulism Face cream of the crop Scots beautician to celebrities tells aNNa BURNSIDE about building her own brand harvested from bee hives. It controls the facial muscles to give a powerful temporary face-lifting effect. Since it has been patented, many other brands have attempted to do something similar. Recently Deborah has introduced nettles as a plant-based alternative. It’s also patented, as Nettatoxin. “I pick the nettle tips myself, brew them, do something witchy with them,” she said. This ingredient is particularly effective on puffy eyes. Like many of her most FaMoUS clieNT Deborah & Tess Daly successful products, this came to her while she was asleep. “I dream them up,” she said. She might be joking when she describes the nettle harvesting process but there is something supernatural about the way Deborah can diagnose a skin issue. “You grind your teeth,” she said to one client as soon as they are introduced. “We will do something about that.” There is a two-year waiting list for an appointment with Deborah at I want my brand to be accessible to anyone iN DeMaND Deborah in action and with television star Peter Andre, pictured below her HQ in Shropshire, near her barn-conversion home. The spa has its own helipad so Simon Cowell-level clients can pop in. And although she has trained therapists all over the world there is something special knowing that the X Factor supremo’s pores have been examined in exactly the same way. The nettles, venom, hylauronic acid and essential oils clearly work. Deborah’s masterstroke is to give them an air of exclusivity. In an Amazon-dominated world when just about everything is two clicks away, that makes her the queen bee. fashion maths.

life. 34 d a i l y r e c o r d 1 7 . 0 9 . 2 0 2 1 DearColeen.. The sTraighT-Talking problem page email dearcoleen@dailyrecord.co.uk I’m scaRED Of sTanDIng Up TO sTROppy wIfE Dear Coleen I WOULD to find out how I can be more assertive with my wife. I always end up backing down because I can’t stand the grief that comes with challenging her on anything. She either shouts and screams or sulks for days. It’s a very one-sided relationship – basically I do what I’m told or there’s hell to pay. I’m sick of this unequal balance and I feel she doesn’t respect me at all. It never used to be like this. What has gone wrong and what can I do about it? Coleen says DON’T enable it. I understand you back down all the time for an easier life, but it’s not really making life any easier for you in the long term because you’re deeply unhappy. I don’t know why things changed – that’s something for you to think about and discuss. However, when she starts shouting, walk out. You should refuse to stay and listen – explain you will when she’s calm. She’s almost behaving like a spoilt, naughty child and if she screams and shouts, she’ll get her own way. And the same goes for the sulking. It’s just about standing up for yourself, not in an aggressive or confrontational way. Explain that unless she can talk to you calmly and with respect (as an adult), then you don’t want to have the conversation. problems? Accused of messing about with school mum’s bloke Dear Coleen I’VE found myself in a really awkward situation and don’t know what to do about it. When I collect my daughter from school, I chat to one of the dads in her class, who’s a nice guy. We’re always joking around and, to be frank, I’d rather speak to him than most of the mums. Sometimes I’ll give him a lift back home after drop-off if the weather’s bad, as he usually walks his daughter to school. To cut a long story short, his wife came up to me in the playground the other day and accused me of “messing about” with her husband! I was so shocked, I actually laughed. She started going on about “cosy chats” at school and inviting him into my car. I basically told her that her suspicions couldn’t be any further from the truth and advised her to take it up with her husband, and then I made a swift exit. However, I feel really angry that I’ve been accused of something I didn’t do and wouldn’t do, as I have a husband and kids. This guy is just someone I pass time with on the school run. What you say I’d like to reply to the man who’s worried about taking on his girlfriend’s kids (Dear Coleen, September 13). For what it’s worth, I took on my wife and her four boys when I was 27. My mother was dubious as well, but it’s worked out great. We’ve been married for 47 years, had a son of our own, and now have 29 grandchildren. My life is brilliant and it was the best thing I ever did. At times, life has been a bit up and down, but I expected that. The decision is yours, but I would say go for it. Phil, by email always TOO TIRED OR BUsy TO HaVE sEX Dear Coleen I’M a 34-year-old mum of two with a full-time job and, the upshot is, I never have the time or energy to have sex with my husband. We’re lucky if we do it once a month. While neither of us seems particularly bothered that we do it so infrequently, I know deep down that it’s not good for our relationship in the long term. Any tips on how to revive things? Coleen says YOU have to make the time – even if it’s just a couple of hours a week to spend together. What about when the kids go to bed? When children come along, it’s a work in progress and it’s easy to ignore the fact that you’re a couple. Sex doesn’t have to be every day but, if the lack of it is “I’m angry I’ve been accused of something I didn’t do worrying you, then tell your hubby you don’t want to lose the intimate side of your relationship. The good thing is, you’ve realised now that it could become a problem, so sit down and work it out. With sex, I always think the more you have it, the more you want it. So, while you might have to make an effort initially, you’ll get into a rhythm. If all you feel should I do – tell him about the confrontation or just keep quiet and avoid him in the future? Coleen says THIS isn’t your problem and it sounds to me as if his wife has incredible trust issues. Maybe he’s had an affair in the past or she’s been hurt by someone else. Perhaps she thinks he fancies you and maybe he’s got form. Equally, though, you don’t want to get dragged into their mess and caught in the crossfire when it’s really nothing to do with you. I’d speak to guy and explain that you don’t want to cause a problem between him and his wife. If he wants more details, then explain that she told you she’s not happy with him talking to you or being in your car. I don’t think I would stop being friendly with him but just take a step back for your own sake and leave the two of them to sort it out. It also sounds as if one or more parents at the school are stirring things up a bit, which could be another reason for his wife’s anger. like doing at the end of the day is flopping on the couch, then flop on the couch together. Sometimes you get home at night and feel exhausted, but why not get a babysitter? Once you make an effort to go out, you’ll enjoy yourself. I’m sure when you first met, you were staying up until all hours and still getting up for work the next day. Tell Coleen Nolan about them and she’ll give you an honest answer… every weekday in the Daily Record If you have a problem, write to: Dear Coleen, Daily Record, One Central Quay, Glasgow G3 8DA or email dearcoleen@dailyrecord.co.uk. I cannot reply personally.

But with Gillian Anderson, Asa Butterworth and Ncuti Gatwa on screen, it’s possible to forget the plot holes and enjoy. On Netflix from today. netflix apple tv TECH IT OUT WarioWare: Get it toGether! FORGET mini games – it’s all about micro games this week on the Nintendo Switch. WarioWare: Get It Together! is a breath of fresh air on the handheld console and brings a whole new meaning to the triedand-tested genre. The long story, short, is that Wario has created his own video game only for the blinking thing to get infected by computer bugs. As is customary in this kind of situation, Wario and his work buddies get mysteriously sucked into the game itself. And they are tasked with WARIO bITTEN by THE bUGS playing their way back out, cleaning the game of any gremlins in a series of fun micro games in the process. In fact, there are more than 200 missions in this new Switch hit. You’ll be asked to yank out a bloke’s armpit hair, fight your way out of a bin bag, or simply turn on a light switch while stuck in complete darkness. WarioWare has absurdity at its heart. And the speed of the game, plus its generous amount of wildly differing micro games, make it a fun title to play over and over with pals. iPhone 13 is so lucky for some apple launches its new range and the impressive upgrades will blow you away THE MORNING SHOW APPLE TV’s flagship drama has become the compelling reason to get yet another streaming service.

The director didn’t think about it but she was slowly moving her face. She was absolutely amazing and now rightly so. She’s a Hollywood superstar because she is a brilliant actress, ORBITAL Have you played since the pandemic or is this your first gig in how many months? I have been shielding because I am high risk. It’s official. For the last 18 months. We played a gig in Manchester for the Hacienda. It was basically for filming really for streaming. There were about 200 Orbital fans there all in their little pens and been ordered not to drink vertically. So that was odd, very very intimate, then we got the plug by RICK FULTON pulled on us because people were jumping around too much and they didn’t want to get into trouble. So this will be the first proper gig. March 2019 was the last proper gig we did. So I’m really looking forward to it. How was lockdown for you? Really bad. Didn’t know who I was any more. Very difficult because I live this life of Orbital and a lot of my socialising was when I’m out and about doing gigs. When that stopped I sort of didn’t have anything, I didn’t realise until it was taken away. So it was pretty difficult, yeah. I bought four cats which did the trick. Paul is different. He kept busy.

Motion detection in the Switch controllers are used to keep track of your performance while strapped to your legs. The 30th anniversary of your debut album, though, so is the party back on? The party is back on. It’s called 30-something now. I think it’s coming out early next year so it’s definitely 30-something. It is little celebratory remixes from David Holme and John Hopkins and all sorts of wonderful things there. Followed by a new Orbital album shortly after. Did you ever think as a rave act you’d be talking about your music 30 years later? No I didn’t, I gave myself a year when it started. Will Playground set be greatest hits or remembering the first album? Our set is a mixture of all sorts of tracks over the years and a couple of new ones. We are trying out Treadmill first. It’s not really been homed in but that’s why we’re trying it live. Have you got a special game activities vary from kayaking to obstacle-filled races. As with anything this active, it is a case of more the merrier, so multiplayer takes it to another sweaty level allowing you to team up on some challenges while competing against each other elsewhere.

A defiantly, feel-fabulous film version of the awardwinning coming-of-age musical written by Tom MacRae, with music courtesy of Dan Gillespie Sells from The Feeling. Theatre director Jonathan Butterell makes his feature film debut with a faithful stage-to-screen adaptation, expanding the rousing song and dance numbers beyond the classrooms and hallways of a secondary school in Sheffield to follow the out and proud 16-year-old hero Jamie New (Max Harwood) as he chases a dream of attending the end-of-year prom as his authentic self, in heels and a dress – a gift from his supportive mother, Margaret (Sarah Lancashire).

And how the audience loved it, whooping and hollering until the last actor left the stage.

However, their pay will be hit by Boris Johnson’s hike in National Insurance. Record readers went on Facebook to discuss it.

CPC cards were brought out a few years ago where drivers sit in a classroom and get lectured, sometimes by people who have never driven an HGV. The only way you can learn about road safety is to be on the road, not watching videos. HGV driving is all hands-on work and the biggest mistake I see now is taking the reversing manoeuvre out of the test. It’s about the most important manoeuvre in an HGV and if you get it wrong people can be seriously injured or worse. It is something you will never learn in a classroom. There are thousands of HGV drivers in the UK who have the licence but don’t hold a CPC card as they left to do other jobs. They are the people we should be trying to encourage back.

Consumer champion Fergus Muirhead can help the If you haven’t organised your Will or Power of Attorney yet now is the time to take advantage of this offer Q I’VE been on furlough for three months now and I’m a bit worried about what will happen when the scheme comes to an end soon. I’m not sure that my employer will be able to continue employing me the way he did in the past and I’ve heard that some employers are asking their staff to sign something called Settlement Agreements when they are being made redundant. Can you explain what will happen when the furlough scheme ends and what a Settlement Agreement is? A THE furlough scheme was introduced in spring last year and at the beginning the Government agreed to pay 80 per cent of wages (up to £2500 a month) for employees who could not work or whose employers couldn’t afford to keep them on during the pandemic. The aim of the scheme was to protect jobs until the economy reopened and hopefully firms would be able to take their employees back to work. It seems to have done that successfully for many employers, which has helped thousands of employees up and down the country, but you are correct when you say that the scheme is coming to an end soon, and this will have an impact on workers whose firms are still struggling to trade normally. I asked I’m worried With furlough about to end for workers twitter Follow Fergus and tweet your comments, questions or suggestions to @fergusmuirhead Sally-Anne Anderson, a partner at Edinburgh solicitor Aberdein Considine, to explain what is happening next. She said: “The government’s contribution to wages has reduced over the last few months and on September 30 the scheme will come to an end. “The majority of employees who were furloughed have already gone back to work or some have been made redundant, but for those still on furlough, they will either be brought back to work on the same terms as they were on before the pandemic, be brought back to work but the employer may try to change some of the working terms and conditions (the employer would have to consult with them about any such changes), or if the business or organisation is still disrupted by the pandemic and/or there is no longer a requirement for employees to do certain jobs, they may face being made redundant. “If an employee is made redundant they will be entitled to notice/notice pay, the chance to take all accrued untaken holidays (or pay in lieu of those holidays) and, if they have two years’ service or more, a statutory redundancy payment.” I also asked Sally-Anne to answer your second question about a Settlement Agreement.

In return for the compensation payment, you agree you will not bring any court or employment tribunal claims against your employer (in effect waiving your legal rights). You are usually also required to agree to keep the circumstances surrounding the agreement and the terms of the agreement strictly confidential.” Sally-Anne said that you need to make sure you’re taking independent legal advice if faced with this situation. She added: “In order to enter into an agreement waiving your legal rights, it is a requirement that you get your own independent legal advice. “Your solicitor has to sign a certificate confirming that they have advised you on the terms and effect of the agreement.

The big issue Cash is still king for drivers when parking CASH is still the No1 option to pay for parking among drivers but young motorists prefer to leave their coins at home, according to a study by the AA. The research comes as local authorities across the UK changed their policies to allow cashless payments only during the height of the pandemic to reduce cash being handled by multiple people to reduce the spread of the virus. Some councils also said moving to cashless options reduced costs as it saved on repairs and meant thieves could not steal from cash machines. While offering cashless payments is popular among younger drivers, older drivers and low-income households prefer to manage their budgets with cash and want the flexibility to pay for parking with coins and then spend any change in the local High Street. Cash is the preferred option for about half of all drivers, followed by chip and pin, then contactless payments via a card or smartphone. The AA is asking councils to retain pay-by-cash parking machines to ensure drivers of all ages and backgrounds can access local shops and facilities, as Jack Cousens, head of roads policy for the AA, explained. “For now, comment Keep an interest in your bank accounts IT LOOKS as though loyalty to our banks, coupled with a bit of laziness, could be collectively costing us billions of pounds each year because of money that we’re leaving lying around in accounts that are paying little or no interest. Interest rates are low, we all know that, and so many of us think that it’s not worth the hassle of switching our money from the account it’s in to another one that might only be paying marginally more to us every month or year. But I can assure you that it is really worth the time and effort. Every extra pound that you earn in interest is another pound that you can spend some time down the line, and surely that money is better in your hands than your bank’s? Low interest rates is the most common reason that savers give for not shopping around to look for a better home for their money. Another reason is that some of the banks offering better rates are newer banks that savers might not have heard of and so we might be a bit more wary of DIVIDE Oldies prefer cash ticket machines cash remains king when paying for parking, however, a speedy transition to an increasingly cashless society is paving a way that could threaten to lock older drivers and low-income households out of their town centre. “Many households prefer to physically see their budgets and doing so gives them a heightened sense of how far their cash can go. Removing cash parking machines from town centres can have a knock-on effect to the local economy as would-be shoppers decide to take their business elsewhere. “With parking income the equivalent of three quarters of council tax revenue for some authorities, Council leaders will not want to lose a valuable source of funding. “ giving them our money. We need to remember that all banks are regulated in the same way and follow the same rules, and your money is just as safe, and protected within limits, in one bank as in another. It’s also worth bearing in mind that sometimes accounts that have held our money for a longer period of time are the ones where interest rates are reduced more often. This means you could be suffering even more if you don’t look to switch money out of these accounts. Unbelievably many of us still hold significant amounts of money in current accounts that pay no interest at all, and there really is no excuse for that. Work out how much you spend every month and then transfer any positive balance to a savings account at the end of the month. Better still, ask your bank to do it for you. There are lots of accounts where any positive balance is transferred from your current account to a savings account with the bank at the end of every month.

The deal means Amazon Prime customers will be able to buy the ethical retailer’s products with same-day delivery and scheduled twohour time slots. Initially available in Glasgow, the service will be expanded to other parts of the country later this year. Co-op boss Steve Murrells said the pandemic had accelerated changes in shopping habits and its Amazon deal will help meet consumer demands for greater convenience. However, the GMB union, which represents Amazon warehouse super steps to recovery SUPERDRy slashed its annual losses by 78 per cent to £36.7million despite shop closures in lockdown. Reporting on the 12 months to April 24, the fashion retailer said it was boosted by its wholesale arm and the axing of online discounts. Sales dived 21.1 per cent but boss Julian Dunkerton said: “Trading has been encouraging since the reopening of our stores.” Elsewhere, online retailer THG said it will float its beauty arm on the stock exchange next year. workers, said Co-op customers will be shocked by the tie-up given concerns over the online giant’s health and safety record, as well as the low tax it pays despite its huge revenues and profits. GMB national officer Andy Prendergast said: “It’s really disappointing to see a company with a proud ethical heritage like Co-op teaming up with Amazon.” Elsewhere, fellow mutual John Lewis announced that its half-year pre-tax losses had fallen from £635million to £29million. Chairwoman Sharon White said despite supply chain problems and the UK shortage of HGV drivers, John Lewis had taken steps to ensure Christmas will not be ruined. It is bringing in goods early and has hired more drivers, in addition to booking its own fleet of cargo ships.

It felt like autumn this morning though but through late August and September fry start loitering in the margins close to structure on big reservoirs. I’ve got a boat booked for next weekend and I’ve got some pattern to tie in advance, filling up with some 90s classics like Bob Church Appetizers, The Humungous and from the catch reports I’ll need some Sparklers and Dunkelds. As the fry shoal up around the likes of rocky dam walls or weed beds, the big grown trout show up to take advantage of an easy high-protein meal before winter. I have not managed to get down for fry time on the huge English waters like Grafham or Rutland, that are for producing huge fish at the back end of the trout season. We’ve got our own big waters though, Menteith and Loch Leven hold plenty of awesome fish and it could be your best chance of tempting a seasontopping trout. If you can time things right – and the fish are on fry – then you’re in for some of the most WHOPPER The fry season gives anglers the chance to land big trout exciting sport of the year, with big fish aplenty. Early morning offers the best chance of success but sport can come in bursts throughout the day as the fish switch on and eat their fill quickly. The important thing is that you are ready, armed with strong tackle, floating or intermediate line fishing a single fly with at least 8lb leader, preferably 10lb. Patterns that looks like a small fish are the order of the day, mix it up and match the hatch to the fry in the water depending on whether it’s perch, stickleback or other little fish. It’s a really visual and exciting type of trout that can be seen ploughing into the quantities of fry, making them shower into the air, creating exciting bow waves and vortices in the water. Rainbows have been known to herd the fish by hunting in packs then surging into the shoals, smacking them with their tails then returning to hoover up the stunned fry. Check for activity on the surface. As trout chase them, small fish can be seen jumping clear of the water in an attempt to escape the feeding frenzy. This is a good time to use a floating fry imitation dropped into the active area and erratically twitched back, then hold tight! When there is no evidence of surface action your best bet is to fish a sinking fry pattern. Keep the retrieve sporadic though mixing up fast and short pulls on the retrieve and don’t forget to pause the retrieve to imitate the easy pickings of an injured or wounded fish. If there is a lack of structure on the waters you fish, the margins are a great place to start. Happy fishing! Titus alarm & CCTV

The Canadian netminder will be between the pipes against Fife Flyers in the first of a pre-season doubleheader, with the teams meeting again in Kirkcaldy tomorrow night. Morrison, one of 15 new arrivals, said: “It has been a while – over 18 months for me –so I’m just looking forward to getting back out and competing. “I know the fans across in Fife have been waiting a while for this so it’s going to be special.” MoRe aT DailyRecoRD.co.UK GOLF RYDER CUP COUNTDOWN KISS & WAKE UP Hole loT oF loVe Fleetwood kisses Molinari and pair in bed, inset, with Ryder Cup Page 49 BaN iS UPHelD Salazar Salazar in appeal KO aTHleTicS ALBERTO SALAZAR has lost his appeal against a four-year doping suspension.

FRANCESCO MOLINARI insists he won’t be jealous if Tommy Fleetwood ends up in bed with the Ryder Cup and another partner next weekend. And the Italian wants to get back with the Englishman in 2023 to rekindle their bromance. The Moliwood pairing famously combined to win all four Paris matches together in 2018 as Europe romped to victory over the USA. And the enduring image of the long French weekend will be the video of Molinari and Fleetwood waking up together with the trophy after a drunken night of celebration. The Italian became the first European ever to win all five of his matches in 2018 but will be watching Whistling Straits from his LA home after failing to qualify this year. The world No.167 said: “I wish I could be there but it is not going to be too weird. “I wish them all the best and I hope to see Tommy and the rest of the team celebrating at the end – however they do it!

Daily RecoRD Friday, September 17, 2021 coNFiDeNT Charles-Cook MOTHERWELL manager Graham Alexander reckons Stephen Glass’ gripe over Kevin van Veen was a smokescreen for their defeat at Fir Park. Alexander hit back at Aberdeen boss Glass over his claim that Well striker van Veen should have been sent off in the Steelmen’s 2-0 win. Glass, who was booked by referee John Beaton for his protests, was adamant van Veen should have picked up a second booking for a second-half challenge on Ross McCrorie. Alexander, however, insists that was just an excuse and reckons even the Dutchman’s first-half booking on Saturday was harsh. And the Well boss claims opposing managers are quick to claim foul play when they lose out to the Steelmen. Alexander said: “I didn’t see anything bad from Kevin at all. “I think what happens is when an opponent beats you that you look for reasons. “Because we’re Motherwell, it can’t be through quality or skill. “It has to be something outside of the rulebook. “I didn’t see anything that either team did differently last week. “I saw them making good tackles on us, I saw us making good tackles on them. “I think it was a bit of a smokescreen trying to say Kevin did this, that or the other. “I didn’t see it all.

Scottish fans demand their team is competitive.” Alexander insists van Veen is a special talent and is putting in the hard graft to match his ability.

Jason Cummings will TangeRine icon McLean led United to glory at home and in Europe and Gallacher, above left, is glad to see a lasting tribute DUNDEE UNITED will take the wraps off a statue to the legendary Jim McLean outside Tannadice tomorrow. And according to one of his most esteemed prodigies, Kevin Gallacher, the best way to honour the club’s greatest manager would be to knock Dundee off their pedestal 24 hours later. Gallacher won’t be in Tayside for the unveiling of his former gaffer’s tribute as he will be busy working as a pundit down south. But that won’t stop the former United striker taking a quiet minute to remember the man who made him as a footballer and who made United a force in Europe. Gallacher – grandson of Celtic icon Patsy – had been destined to follow the family footsteps to Parkhead. But when McLean stepped into the bargaining for the then 13-year-old in the early 1980s there was no turning back. He went on to blossom in the McLean school of hard knocks, helping the club reach the UEFA Cup Final in 1987 before forging a career that took him to England’s top flight with Coventry, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle as well as winning 53 caps. He was a teenager on the fringes of the first team when United won their only Premier League title under McLean in 1983 – beating their city rivals at Dens on the final day. Now, almost 40 years later, Gallacher is hoping Tam Courts’ current side can make the weekend extra special by get it, Charlie Adam will get it and Leigh Griffiths will get it. “I’d say they’ll enjoy it and Gowser certainly does. He’s the kind of boy who gets abuse going to the shops but he loves it! “Hearing it on the walk down to Tannadice fires him up, it gets him going and ready for the game. So MoRe aT DailyRecoRD.co.UK following up Saturday’s statue unveiling with a derby-day drubbing and finally regain bragging rights after the Dens club relegated United five years ago. He said: “The 2 dAYS TO GO exclUSive By FRaSeR wilSon most fitting tribute United can pay Jim this weekend would be to win the derby. “It’s a massive game, always is. Back in our day if you went into the town then half would love you and the other half hated you. “It’s just how it is and it’s great to see it back in the top flight. It’s about who wants to rule the roost and thankfully in my era it was very much United who had the bragging rights. “They were always physical games. Form didn’t matter a bit. Dundee were often struggling but when it came to the derby they always upped their game. “Dundee rubbed it in when United were relegated and rightly so. It worked the other way when United were on top. “It’s payback time for United now. These two teams belong in the top league and it’s just a matter of who’s on top of who when they are there. It’s brilliant that it coincides with the statue. “ J i m deserves a fantastic turnout. He was a h a r d t a s k m a st e r, everyone knows that. But without him giving me the opportunity and sometimes managing me the way he did then I might not have been successful as I was. “So I will always hold him in the highest esteem. “He took a gamble on a skinny kid and believed in my ability. “I had been destined for Celtic. But at 13 Jim sold Dundee United to me. It was his simple words, ‘I don’t care about your size – if you’re good enough you will play for me.’ “The rest is history. I’m working on Saturday but I will definitely have a wee thought about Jim.” Gallacher insists the legacy left by his former mentor will be lasting across Scottish football for generations to come. The 54-year-old added: derby banter is just like water off a duck’s back for him hopefully on Sunday he’ll be able to help us keep them quiet.” Dundee are still looking for their first Premiership victory after the opening five matches of the league campaign. Byrne added: “We are excited and looking forward to the derby. “It would be the perfect time to get He took a gamble on a skinny kid and believed in my ability KEVIN GALLACHER is a mcLean fan “People say success is about winning trophies but that’s not all. It’s about turning a small football club in a two-club city into the biggest club in the city. “What Dundee had done in the 1960s then United had to emulate in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Jim McLean did that. “He put the club on the footballing map across the whole of Europe. “He won the Premier League, he got them to a European Cup semi-final and then a European final. There were many finals on a domestic level too. “If he’d won a few of those he’d have been put on an even higher pedestal if that was even possible. “If you look at Scottish football in the era of the 80s and 90s, when Dundee United and Aberdeen were at the forefront with Jim and Alex Ferguson, then you could argue that kick-started our game and that real quality of Scottish managers that emerged. “Walter Smith went on and became a fantastic manager for Rangers and Scotland.

But Gallacher knows only too well that form goes out the window when the two Tayside forces collide. He said: “Sunday could be anything. I’ve seen derby matches won on a single piece of brilliance – like Ralph Milne with that exquisite chip that won us the league at Dens Park in 1983. “I’ve seen games won by a goalmouth scramble. “They have been fantastic games down the decades – it could be one goal, it could be seven goals – you just never know what you’re going to get.” the first win. We have been playing well and if we keep those displays up, we’ll start winning. “It’s about putting the ball in the back of the net and we have been a bit unlucky on that front. “I think we have a lot of goals in the team and I’m sure they will start coming soon.” WILL Scotland’s women make a winning start to World Cup qualifying in Hungary?

MoRe aT DailyReco Page 54 Daily RecoRD Friday, September 17, 2021 SPORTS VIEW FRIDAY Andy Newport Forget Firhill for twirls – Hendry left PSG in a spin FROM going round in circles at Firhill to almost running rings around Messi, Neymar and Mbappe. It’s been some journey for Jack Hendry. We all remember that viral clip of the then Celtic defender spinning out of control in Maryhill in 2018. Round and round he went as he desperately sought a green and white jersey to pass to. But he the more he spiralled, the more dizzy he became and it was not long before he was embarrassingly stripped of possession. It was an image of a player struggling to get to grips with life at a major club and for many Celtic supporters it was proof Hendry did not have what it takes to make it at Parkhead. Yet three years on and the same Jack Hendry has just doused the hottest frontline in world football with new side Club Brugge. Forget Firhill for twirls, Hendry is back on the straight and narrow after helping the Belgians cause the shock of the opening round of Champions League fixtures as they held PSG to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday night. It was former Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera who gave the French giants their lead at the Jan Breydel Stadium as Messi’s first PSG appearance in UEFA’s top competition ended in a blank for their trio of superstars up top. Brugge had to ride their luck at times, like when Messi smashed the bar with his only attempt of note, but it could also have been Hendry’s team snatching a win. Only a last-ditch block from Abdou Diallo prevented the Scot from stealing the limelight as his goal-bound shot was diverted away second half after Hans Vanaken’s strike had sent the sides in level at the break. It’s an astonishing turnaround for a player who was written off by many, especially when he was dispatched Down Under to Melbourne for the first six months of last year. Things turned around when he took the chance to join Oostende after his return from Oz and the bold move paid off as he was named the best player in Belgian’s top flight after an impressive debut campaign. But even that was not enough to win over those who had seen him struggle with Celtic. And the doubters were back out in force after his Hampden howler against the Czech Republic in Scotland’s Euro 2020 opener. Yes he was daft to take on that long-range shot with his side exposed behind him but who could have expected Patrik Schick to ping one over David Marshall from 50 Clarke’s faith was restored ... Surely it’s time the rest of us gave the kid a break? yards out? Hendry paid a heavy toll as he sat out the rest of the tournament. But Steve Clarke’s faith was restored on the back of Hendry’s £3.5million switch to Brugge and he was as a starter in both of Scotland’s crucial World Cup qualifiers with Moldova and Austria. Surely it’s time the rest of us gave the kid a break? Some will claim it is revisionism to say Celtic made a mistake by failing to take him back over the summer. But he’s not the first player to reinvent himself in comfier surrounds and he couldn’t do any worse than Carl Starfelt managed in his first couple of months. Football is a game of cycles. Right now it looks like it’s Hendry time to take a turn for the better. our top writers give their fearless verdicts every day in record sport eyeiNg ReTURN Steve Kean Ex-Rovers boss is Kean on Forest BY aNDy NeWPoRT Steve Kean could be set for a return to management at nottingham Forest. the Glaswegian is among the list of contenders battling to replace Chris Hughton at the City Ground after the former newcastle and Brighton manager was axed yesterday. Kean had a two-year stint in charge of troubled Blackburn a decade ago. He moved to australia last year to assist Grant Bremner at ange Postecoglou’s former a-League side Melbourne victory before taking interim charge for three months when Bremner was sacked. ex-Swansea boss Steve Cooper is understood to be the leading candidate for Forest but Kean is hopeful he can force his way into the running. iNeligiBle KiD Bilham Ayr face cup KO and Gers may benefit BY FRaSeR WilSoN aYR could be booted out of the SPFL trust trophy – and Rangers reinstated – after fielding two ineligible players in the 3-0 win over the Ibrox B team. the Honest Men handed senior debuts to youngsters Kinlay Bilham and alex Jeanes in the last 10 minutes of their secondround victory in Dumbarton on tuesday. But both are currently on temporary transfers to West of Scotland League clubs Irvine Meadow and Girvan and should not have been involved. ayr, due to face alloa in the next round, will discover their fate at a disciplinary hearing on Monday. albion Rovers were expelled from the competition in 2017-18 for fielding an ineligible player. FaNFaRe Kyle Magennis and Josh Doig, right, applaud Hibs supporters after goalless draw against Hearts at Tynecastle on Sunday co.UK HIBS Don’t dare claim that we were celebrating a draw FRoM BacK Page boss by comparing the sight of his disappointed Jambos trudging back to their dressing room in frustration with the scenes of the Hibs squad applauding their travelling fans at full-time. the Hearts head coach reckoned that was proof of the superior mentality within his squad after the first clash of the new season between the edinburgh foes ended goalless. But Ross claimed his opposite number read the situation wrong as he insisted all his players did was thank the away support for their vocal backing. a sked about ne i l s o n’s comments, the Hibs boss said: “I don’t pay attention to what other managers say, to be honest. “Particularly when the word ‘celebration’ was used. It’s just not true, is it? “So I don’t concern myself with two things. One, external opinions from other clubs and, two, untruths. “I think we proven for a long time at this club, the last year and a half in particular, the mentality we’ve got in the group and where we’re trying to get to. “I think anybody who was in the stadium or who watched the game on television would know that [we were just recognising the fans]. “ that’s why [ne i l s o n’s comments] didn’t really concern me. “anybody would know there’s a significant difference between a celebration and an acknowledgement or an appreciation. I think that happens up and down the country every single week. “even after defeats, we regularly see players acknowledge and appreciate travelling fans and home fans.” Both sides had chances to win last Sunday’s showdown – only for goalkeepers Craig Gordon and Matt Macey to pull off a string of outstanding saves. But neilson suggested earlier this week the green half of the capital were far happier with the result than his side. “You saw Hibs after the game – they were away celebrating with their fans and it seemed like they were delighted to get a point against us,” he said.

Daily Record Friday, September 17, 2021 JACK ROSS insists there’s nothing wrong with the quality of the product on offer in Scottish football - but he does think it’s time to give the packaging a spruce-up. The Hibs boss is fully behind Easter Road owner Ron Gordon’s attempts to ensure the days of our game being short-changed are over. Gordon has joined up with chiefs from Aberdeen, Dundee, Dundee United and Hearts to launch a major review of the SPFL’s finances and structures as they embark on an ambitious bid to double the current revenue streams from £27million up to £50m a year. Ross is honest enough to admit he has no idea how easy that will be to do. As a football man, his grasp of numbers is limited to 4-4-2 and 4-3-3. But the former Alloa, St Mirren and Sunderland manager has seen enough in his time in the game to know more could be done to sell what Scottish football has to offer to advertisers and sponsors. He said: “It’s difficult for me to say with any certainty that those who are in charge aren’t maximising the commercial revenues because I don’t know how difficult that is to do. “But one thing I’ve always felt following my time in England is we don’t necessarily promote our game in the best possible way all the time. It’s a brilliant product. “I’ve got a good relationship with our owner and I know he’s blown away with how big a deal football is in Scotland and how much it matters to people. “I do think there’s scope to market it better. There might be people who have expertise and say I’m talking rubbish and they have every right to do so. “But given how important it is to society in Scotland we might have a more collaborative MORE AT DailyRecord.CO.UK TIME TO TALK A GOOD GAME Scottish football’s a brilliant product ...we need to start telling people that says hibs boss jack ross by ANDY NEWPORT approach to marketing and investment. That’s the direction they want to take it. “Ron has asked me regularly what I think we could do better in the game in Scotland and we share dialogue on it. “He’s a good communicator and he likes discussion and debate. He has a genuine wish to improve – not just Hibs but Scottish football – and some of that is born out of the background he comes from.” In yesterday’s Record Sport, former First Minister Henry McLeish confessed he had concerns over the motives of the new review given four out of the five clubs involved have owners based in America. Ross is among those who takes his orders from across the Atlantic, with Peru-born Gordon now based in Miami. The Hibs owner, whose background is in broadcasting and banking, has shown a ruthless streak when it comes to local sentiment having espoused the benefits of slashing the number of senior clubs in Scotland from 42 to 24. But Ross boss believes there are some valuable lessons to be learned from looking to those with experience Stateside. He said: “The MLS is completely different and can’t be compared because there’s no relegation and it has different dynamics. “But they do a huge amount of collaborative work for the betterment of the league rather than the TALKing it up Jack Ross individual clubs. There are maybe things we can learn from that and work together more as clubs to promote the game. “A lot of American sport is like that. The NFL and NBA have no relegation. They’re different but the collaborative effort to strengthen the league all the time is there. “The biggest thing we’re a little bit guilty of – and I include myself in that – is to be afraid of change. “But sometimes change does bring benefits and it might be even a little bit of change can strengthen the game. “We have a good product that a lot of people are interested in but maybe we tend to rely o n the fact people will always love it and will always come, rather than trying to think of ways to make sure people keep doing that. Especially for future generations.” The current generation of fans in Edinburgh made the most of their first chance for 18 months to see the city’s top two clubs go head to head. The opening derby was played out amid an ear-shattering din. Ross would be saddened to see a cap put on capacities again because of the Scottish Government’s plans to introduce vaccine passports for outdoor events staged in front of more than 10,000 people. He added: “From a purely football point of view, we wouldn’t want to take a step back in that regard. But it always will be, as it has been the last 18 months, determined by factors outwith football.” Page 55 PROGRESSINGLee McCulloch Lee: Hearts’ aim is to top the Old Firm by FRASER WILSON LEE McCULLOCH insists splitting the Old Firm isn’t the only focus for Hearts – because they want to topple BOTH. The Tynecastle assistant boss says nothing is out of the question as the club strives to get back to the very top. Gaffer Robbie Neilson has overseen an unbeaten start to the Premiership season after the Jambos’ promotion from the second tier, including an opening-day victory over Celtic. And in the build-up to last week’s table-topping Edinburgh derby, Neilson admitted the Hoops and Rangers were the long-term target. Now his No.2, former Ibrox midfielder McCulloch, insists getting in between the Glasgow giants is just the first objective. McCulloch said: “That’s what this club is all about – trying to split the Old Firm and then can we go above and beyond that? “It’s high expectations but it’s a massive club and we need to cope with the expectations. “As a staff and dressing room we have done that so far. It’s that message – can we get better week by week? “Time will tell how quickly we can do that. It’s been a good start but that’s all it’s been. “Before we came in the club had won four league games the previous season so it speaks volumes for the management and change of mentality.

But we showed character and belief to change the result.” EUROPA LEAGUE DON’T LOSE HART ReUNioN Betis boss Pellegrini with his old City No.1 Hart ANTHONY RALSTON insists Celtic shouldn’t be beating themselves up over their collapse to Real Betis after claiming they still put credit in the bank against the Spaniards. The Hoops full-back is convinced the performance against the La Liga cracks is a sign of progress despite blowing a two-goal lead as their Europa League Group campaign began with a crazy night in Seville. Albian Ajeti’s strike and a Josip Juranovic penalty allowed the Glasgow giants to gain an early advantage only for Jota to miss a golden chance for a third. It was to trigger an opening of the floodgates as Joe Hart was beaten four times and Ralston is adamant it left a sour taste after flying out of the blocks. He said: “It’s disappointing to lose the game as clearly our intention was to come here and try to win the game. “We had a good start in the game and managed to get ourselves into a two-goal lead and we were looking strong but we lost that. “The important thing was that Joe beaten four times by ruthless Betis but Ralston takes positives from a Euro thriller by goRDoN PaRKS we kept going and we dug in especially when Betis took the lead. We also managed to keep going to the very end so there are a lot of positives to take away from the game. “We need to take that into the other European games as well as into the league.” The 22-year-old nodded home late on to put something of a flattering look to a 4-3 scoreline which remained respectable due to fine first-half saves from Hart. Hoops boss Ange Postecoglou also went down the route of there being better days ahead for a side which remains a work in progress. And Ralston echoed his manager in insisting the belief in the systems and style under the Australian won’t be altered any time soon. He said: “I definitely feel that there’s a lot more to come from this group of players. We’ve got a quality team, on top of that we have the desire to go places and a strong belief in how the gaffer wants us to play. “I feel we are implementing that, even at this level as well. So it’s important we continue to do that and believe in each other. “We have to focus on each game and try to keep climbing and do what we can. “It’s just important we keep to what we believe in and what we’re trying to do and I am sure we will be fine.” Defeat in the opener leaves Celtic third in Group G after Bayer Leverkusen fought back to beat Ferencvaros 2-1. But Ralston is convinced the latest Seville hard luck story could have had a better ending had they been more clinical. He said: “We had our chances we missed but we need to look at the fact we’re creating them as another positive. In another day if we managed to take them then it’s a different result. “It’s disappointing to lose the game but we need to take all of those positives into the future.” There was a lot to credit Celtic for, especially in a frantic first half hour against Los Verdiblancos, where they created a host of chances. And Ralston is adamant the star quality within the Spanish ranks should be factored into any criticism which comes their way. He said: “Betis are a topquality side, we knew that. We didn’t fear that and we believed we could come here and win. We wanted to play our football and it’s unfortunate that we lost. “But it means that we’re now ready to put all of those positives into our future games. “They’re a quality side and we lost the goals in quick succession after we took a 2-0 lead. “That’s football, it’s how you a Real SicKeNeR Ralston is gutted at final whistle after Hoops lose out in seven-goal thriller react to that and I felt we reacted in the right way. We came out and we fought, even though they took the lead.” A roasting hot Spanish night sapped the energy from the Celtic legs as Betis threatened to run amok. But Ralston is adamant it will prove a valuable learning curve as they face the prospect of trying to get their Europa League campaign back on track against German giants Leverkusen at the end of the month. He said: “It was tiring but these are the types of games you want to play in – they’re going to be hard, they’re going to be physical. It’s how you adapt to the climate and the style of play of the opposition but I felt we did that well. “You just need to keep going to the end. You never know in football. You don’t give up in these types of ties, you want to try and get a result, especially away from home. “On another day we take our chances and it’s a different result but we’ve lost the game. We’ll regroup and focus on the next one.”

Daily RecoRD Friday, September 17, 2021 MoRe aT DailyRecoRD.co.UK MORE PAIN IN SPAIN Ring of steel on the outside.. soft under belly on the inside ORGANISED chaos and Celtic have had an unholy alliance under Ange Postecoglou. Messy and shambolic, Champions League exit apart, there was just enough up their cuff to wing it. But it was always a safe bet Real Betis would lay bare the defensive disarray that has been on show all season. Even allowing for the absence of seven of Postecoglou’s recruits in the defeat in Spain last night, it always had the look of another display littered with mistakes amid the attacking gusto. Just why the search for a win on Spanish soil continues for Celtic is difficult to fathom. A two-goal lead before being ripped apart by a Betis side sensing blood and the heart of the Hoops backline was where they found it. It was billed as a nostalgic return to Seville. Eighteen years have passed since that UEFA Cup Final defeat by Porto and this trip wasn’t one to savour. There was also an historic theme as Betis faced Scottish opposition for the first time and talk was about an old alliance. A common bond exists due to the sharing of green and white strips, accompanied by a quaint tale of Betis founding member Manuel Asensio Ramos returning from a spell studying in Scotland and adopting the colours after becoming hooked on Celtic. Those relations may be a bit strained after a temperamental contest that always looked capable of boiling over. This test was always going to be daunting, however you want to gauge it. Budget, standard of weekly competition or the fact out of Europe’s top five leagues the Andalusians have lost the least amount of games in 2021 – three against Barcelona, Sevilla JEREMIE FRIMPONG showed Celtic just what they’re missing with a blockbuster display in Bayer Leverkusen’s fine start to Group G. The Dutch wing-back set up both goals for the Germans ahead of a return to Parkhead later this month. But it was the Turks who took the aNalySiS goRDoN PaRKS iN SeVille and Real Madrid. Throw in melting hot temperatures and this Europa League Group G opening tie had the feeling of a clash fraught with trouble and no Hoops fans there to see it. Always inventive, the Celtic support discovered the strictest security protocols were in place, as a Seville address was required for starters and no briefs were to be found on the black market. A ring of steel around the Benito Villamarin Stadium came in the shape of baton-armed police who looked ready to do FRiMPoNg’S aMoNg THe Big BHoyS leVeRKUSeN........2 FeReNcVaRoS......1 lead in just eight minutes when Tokmac Chol Nguen burst clear and squared for Ryan Mmaee to tap in. Leverkusen dug deep and they business. Yet some supporters made the journey on a wing and a prayer that they’d be able to get their hands on tickets. Dozens arrived outside the ground a few hours before kick-off before accepting their fate by wandering off to watch the match in a boozer. An early booking for Ismaila Soro was as much to do with the amateur dramatics of Nabil Fekir as he hit the deck. Some more theatre saw Celtic take the lead in the 13th minute through Albian Ajeti, cleared to celebrate by VAR after a couple took control, finally finding a leveller in 37 minutes when Frimpong crossed for Exequiel Palacios to net from inside the box. And the 20-year-old was involved again for the winner, picking out Florian Wirtz to rattle home in the 69th minute. ToUgH jUaN Starfelt, right, after Miranda goal and lockout for fans, below Celtic defence far easier to breach than stadium of minutes. Soro was treading a thin line with another foul. Frantic and chaotic, two teams were going at each other’s throats as Betis hosted one of the biggest crowds of the Covid era at 60 per cent capacity. They were appalled by what they saw. Celtic were two the good as Ajeti was felled by Betis keeper Claudio Bravo and Josip Juranovic cracked home the penalty. Too good to be true. Juan Miranda and Juanmi delivered a double whammy in the space of three minutes. The game was up when Borja Iglesias and Juanmi edged the contest out of sight, despite Anthony Ralston’s late header. A group-stage win on the road remains elusive since Lazio almost two years ago.

The 32-year-old, making his return to Germany after a bust-up with the national team saw him quit international football, was clinical for the Turks. He curled home the opening goal in 10 minutes only for Sam Lammers to rattle in a leveller before the break. In stoppage time Kevin Trapp saved a penalty from Dimitris Pelkas to secure a point for the Germans. Monaco took full points in Group B as they edged out a stubborn Sturm Graz side thanks to Krepin Diatta’s 66th-minute goal. Meanwhile, in Group E there was a big win for Galatasaray as a first-half own goal from Thomas Strkosha handed them a 1-0 victory against Lazio. The other clash saw Lokomotiv Moscow hold Marseille to a 1-1 draw with 10 men. Nayair RoUND-UP Tiknizyan walked for a second booking in 58 minutes, with Cengiz Under tucking away the penalty for the French. But with just a minute left, Faustino Anjorin popped up to make sure of a point. In the Europa Conference League, Tammy Abraham was among the scorers as Jose Mourinho’s Roma thrashed CSKA Sofia 5-1. Graham Carey gave the away side the lead in the 10th minute before Lorenzo Pellegrini’s superb curling effort levelled it. Stephan El Shaarawy put Mourinho’s men in front with a 38th-minute strike, Pellegrini added their third just past the hour mark and, after CSKA’s Yanic Wildschut saw red, Gianluca Mancini then Abraham sealed it. Slavia Prague won 3-1 at home against 10-man Union Berlin in Group E after late goals from Jan Kuchta and Ivan Schranz.

CRUELLA Spot the difference as another trip to Spanish city ends in heartache for Bhoys as they blow two-goal lead more pain in Spain – more sorrow in Seville. Yet it could have been so different for Ange Postecoglou’s patched-up Celtic had they not blown a two-goal lead – after Albian Ajeti’s opener and Josip Juranovic’s penalty – in the Benito Villamarin Stadium. The Hoops’ defensive frailties came back to haunt them again as they were blitzed by Real Betis. A double from Juanmi and goals from Juan Miranda and Borja Iglesias gave the Spanish side an opening Group G win – although Anthony Ralston’s late header ensured it was a nervier end than it should have been for the locals. There were positives for Celtic. They started and finished the game well – and three goals away from home is always a decent haul. But if they continue to defend the way they did last night they will be lucky to win a game in this group. Betis didn’t have to be brilliant to cut through a Hoops backline that EUROPA LEAGUE ReAl BetiS....4 celtic....3 ScOtt BURNS iN SeVille was hardly inexperienced, with Juranovic, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Carl Starfelt all proven international players. You also had an experienced former England No.1 Joe Hart behind them – although in fairness he did nothing wrong! Yet Betis looked like they could carve Celtic apart at will. Postecoglou has brought in the majority of this defence and, okay, Juranovic was asked to play out of position on the left. But they have to be a lot better and reliable than on this showing. Celtic now have home games against Bayer Leverkusen and Ferencvaros and will be praying the Parkhead atmosphere can help get them back into contention. This trip to Seville was in sharp contrast to the last one back in 2003. Martin O’Neill’s side had travelled knowing they were potentially 90 minutes away from UEFA Cup glory. This time Postecoglou’s side were coming in as the underdogs and very much under-strength, through an unfortunate mix of injury, Covid and religious reasons. Captain Callum McGregor, Liel Abada, James Forrest, Nir Bitton, Giorgos Giakoumakis, Greg Taylor and Kyogo Furuhashi were just some of the names who were unavailable. The Betis squad, managed by the highly experienced Manuel Pellegrini, were at the opposite end, settled and battle-hardened. The Chilean coach also had a real insight into Celtic at both ends of the park, having worked with Hart at Manchester City before signing Ajeti for West Ham in 2019 just a few month before he was sacked. Adam Montgomery was handed his first European start for Celtic, as were Juranovic, Carter-Vickers and winger Jota. These sides are known for greenand-white kits but both took to the field wearing their change strips. Postecoglou went out on the front foot. Some good battling from Ismaila Soro won the ball and allowed Tom Rogic to thread a ball through to Jota but keeper Claudio Bravo came off his line bravely to deny him. Soro then went into the book early for an early foul on Nabil Fekir. The Seville sun was beating down but it was Celtic who turned up the heat and took a deserved lead. David Turnbull fed Jota who beat his full-back and put in a delightful cross that Ajeti bundled into the net in the 13th minute. Ref Fran Jovic initially whistled for handball but the VAR assistant Bastian Dankert intervened and after

Betis battled back and Hart got down well to deny Andres Guardado. Soro was lucky not to walk for a clumsy challenge on Joaquin. When the whistle went the home fans expected a second yellow to be shown but instead Guardado was booked for his protests. The Hoops were delighted with the Croatian referee again when Ajeti nipped in ahead of Bravo who took him down. Juranovic was an unlikely penalty taker but he coolly stepped up to slam the ball confidently into the top right-hand corner of the net in the 28th minute. Celtic suddenly looked to be on course for their first win in Spain after a wait of almost 60 years – but that was to quickly change.

Fekir played the ball into the box and Miranda got a break when it fell into his path. He slotted it low under Hart in the 32nd minute. Iglesias then wasn’t picked up as he broke the offside trap and unselfishly squared to give Juanmi the easiest of tap-ins. Celtic had worked hard for their goals and then much too easily surrendered to go in level at the break. It took just five minutes No caSe FoR DeFeNce after the restart for Betis Gaffer Ange Postecoglou to inevitably go ahead. watches his Celts stars sink Miranda found Sergio Canales and he was given too much time in space to put in a cross for Iglesias to knock home. By now the visitors were a shambles at the back and Betis’ fourth wasn’t long in arriving. A corner was only half-cleared and it fell to Juanmi before he arrowed a shot in off Hart’s right-hand post. James McCarthy came on for Soro as Postecoglou tried to salvage something while Pellegrini took off his big guns. Jota was Celtic’s best player on the night. He fired a cross towards Rogic but the Aussie’s volley came back off the post. Celtic rallied in the closing minutes and Ralston headed home Turnbull’s free-kick. The Hoops tried to rescue a point but it was too little too late. That late goal put a different reflection on the scoreline – if not the game. FRoM bacK Page Celtic boss hopes that will be the case for the next two European games when they have Bayer Leverkusen and Ferencvaros at home. Postecoglou said: “Don’t get me wrong, I’m disappointed we didn’t win and I’m disappointed the players didn’t get their rewards but it doesn’t deter my bullishness about where we’re heading. “We’re just going to get stronger, there’s no doubt about that. Tonight, that’s our baseline against a very good opponent. “We’ll get some players back who are going to help us absolutely, particularly to settle the team down a bit. We’ll be stronger. “Hopefully over the next week to 10 days we’ll have three or four back.” Captain Callum McGregor, Kyogo Furuhashi, James Forrest, Giorgos Giakoumakis, Greg Taylor, Liel Abada and Nir Bitton were some of the top stars missing. Postecoglou admitted his first instinct is always to go out and attack. He said: “Yeah, I’ve got mixed emotions. I’m really proud of the team and the football we played. “The opposition are a good team, we’re away from home and the football was good. But they have some quality and there were periods of the game where they got momentum and some big goals. On the other side of that, we had other opportunities to go further ahead, so it’s disappointing the players didn’t get the rewards for the efforts they showed. “I was really proud of the football we played and the efforts the players put in. We had some resilience to show irrespective of circumstances, we will be a certain kind of football team. “We wanted to take the game to a good team and I don’t think there was much between the sides.” Celtic’s defensive woes cost them dearly in Seville. But Postecoglou said: “Tony Ralston has been outstanding but he’s missed a few games. It was Cameron (Carter-Vicker)’s second game, Carl (Starfelt) has just come in this year. It’s Josip’s (Juranovic) third or fourth game. It’s going to take time for us to get that understanding. “I see in them a desire to get better and improve and that’s the most important thing.” Celtic’s top performers were at the top end of the pitch. Jota, in particular, shone like a beacon. His manager added: “It’s still a team learning to play together. We’re throwing players in but Jota was outstanding. He posed a threat all night.” Betis boss Manuel Pellegrini believed there was only going to be one outcome when they pulled it back to 2-2. He said: “We played a big team in Europe. The first 25 minutes were our worst but we were able to solve it.” RalSToN looKiNg aT THe PoSiTiVeS see page 56

Daily RecoRD Friday, September 17, 2021 RANGERS were looking forward to enjoying a golden anniversary party at Ibrox but an old ex turned up to make it an awkward evening. Steven Gerrard wanted to celebrate his 50th European tie in style before former foes Lyon took the shine off it. Rangers fans will always have a space in their hearts for the French town after their love affair back in 2007. A fair few choose to ignore the second date when Lyon pitched up in Glasgow and reversed the scoreline to send Walter Smith’s men out the Champions League. There were no hard feelings back then, though, as it was better to have loved and lost – plus it sent Gers on their way to the UEFA Cup Final in Manchester. But it was tough love last night as ruthless Lyon left the Light Blues searching for a silver lining. A lot has happened in the 14 years since that showpiece. Rangers have made a remarkable journey back to the top level but it’s not exactly been much fun for French outfits such as Lyon since PSG got turbo-charged by Qatari cash, They’ve not won Ligue 1 in that time but they still landed in Scotland with a side that looked capable of doing damage. The talk had been about former Celtic man Moussa Dembele coming back to his old Scottish stomping ground but the frontman was left at home crocked on the couch. Gers fans weren’t wary at facing a former tormentor, though. They were keen to show the grinning assassin how far their side have come since he was rag-dolling defenders around these parts. Rangers under Gerrard are unrecognisable from those dark days and have firmly become part of the Europa League furniture. Plenty of big names have come and gone over his 50 games in charge, with teams including Porto, Feyenoord and Galatasaray crawling out of Govan. But Lyon were a different beast. Gerrard reckoned going in that the side might be the best of the 25 he’s faced on the continent and he was proved right. They were simply a cut above. OL might not have got off to a flier in France this season but things are taking shape under new boss Peter Bosz. And they still have players who can produce moments of quality. There wasn’t much between the sides when Karl Toko Ekambi produced a piece of brilliance. If MoRe aT DailyRecoRD.co.UK EX MARKS THE SPOT Anniversary bash to forget for Stevie G as new Bosz turns party pooper Gerrard hits 50 but French aren’t Lyon down BooT in THe BoSZ Lyon boss Peter and, right, Kent in pain analySiS S MicHael gannon anything, Gers were shading it. But that’s what can happen at this level. It only takes a drop of the shoulder and a swing of a boot to land a blow. Ryan Kent got caught out in possession but there was still a ton of work to do. John Lundstram could maybe have showed Ekambi outside but the finish was unreal. That’s the difference. Rangers had chances as well, arguably some of the better ones. Kent was back on it and back to his best, Joe Aribo was a threat, while Alfredo Morelos was selflessly taking the hits against defenders as well as dropping deep to create space for others. Lundstram has yet to win over the Ibrox fans and while he might have been beaten for the goal, there were a few hints in his performance to suggest he could kick on. The second goal was a sore one. If the opener was magical, No.2 was more farcical as the ball DeFenSive Dig iS DaneS’ DangeR BRONDBY marked their return to European football group stage after a 16-year absence by snatching a well-earned point in Group A.

Brondby travel to Glasgow on October 21 but will first head to France for their second clash. pinballed around before ending up in the net after hitting skipper James Tavernier. It gave Lyon the cushion they wanted to feel more comfortable while Rangers supporters were shifting uneasily in their seats. Kent limping off was the last thing they needed and another sign the night was heading south. Lyon were happy to keep their shape and hit on the break while the home side just couldn’t find the ex-factor. Gerrard’s Ibrox marriage has been a match made in heaven but this was an anniversary bash to forget. RUnning Man Radosevic Page 61 Hotline anDy newPoRT anSweRS yoUR callS RANGERS fans are creaking like an old IKEA wardrobe after learning Swedish centre-back Filip Helander is ruled out until December. Steven Gerrard still has Connor Goldson, Leon Balogun and Jack Simpson to fall back on – although the latter has been left out of their squad for the Europa League. And craig Murray, east Kilbride, reckons that is a mistake the Ibrox boss might live to regret. He said: “I know the UEFA rules on who can and cannot be included in your squad are complex but surely Rangers should have ensured they had four centre-backs on their list.” Niko Katic would have been an option had he not been sent out on loan to Hajduk Split in order to build up his fitness following last year’s serious knee injury. Bluenose Davie Phillips, clydebank, said: “I really wish we had kept big Katic here in Glasgow this season. For me, he’s a much stronger option at the back than Balogun or Simpson.” Celtic fan David Bryce, Troon, is also worried about the lengthy injury list at Parkhead. He said: “Celtic’s injury list is shocking and simply not good enough. Guys like James Forrest and Mikey Johnston are never available for selection. “And for Ange Postecoglou to say Giorgos Giakoumakis is not up to speed, in the middle of September, is simply shocking. Do players not play when they have a knock these days?” We learned earlier this week that Aberdeen, Hearts, Hibs, Dundee United and Dundee have launched a probe into the SPFL’s finances as they look to double the revenue Scottish football can generate. But andrew lamb, Fraserburgh, said: “The quote of tHe day ‘For Ange Postecoglou to say Giorgos Giakoumakis is not up to speed, in the middle of September, is simply shocking’ search for new money by five of the SPFL clubs simply proves that there are far too many teams in the SPFL chasing a small pot of cash. The Premiership can support no more than 10 clubs, max.” Hotline regular gordon ashley, ayr, was back for his daily bicker as he said: “Caller Chris Lowe must be nominated for a comedy award after his Alfredo Morelos gag in yesterday’s paper. “His list of so-called big names he has netted against that ‘goes on and on’ but actually ends after the three clubs he mentions. He’s worth £6million tops.” But Frank McFerran, carrickfergus, just wishes we could all get along. He said: “As a Rangers fan, unlike the famous Celtic fan on this site, I want both teams to do well in Europe.” alan lough, Dunbar, wasn’t impressed by what he saw from PSG’s star-studded line-up after they failed to overcome a Club Brugge defence marshalled by Scotland’s Jack Hendry on Wednesday night. He said: “PSG were awful against a brilliant Club Brugge team who played them off the park and were unfortunate not to get the umpteen goals their performance deserved.” Dons fan andrew lamb, Fraserburgh, emailed: “I wish Aberdeen players would stop all the gung-ho battle cries and do their talking on the park, starting with a win against St Johnstone on Saturday. The Perth side are so dull and haven’t won a game yet.” Bankie Stephen Mclaren said: “I would just like to say good luck to Clydebank FC, who will be playing their first Scottish Cup tie in the town for 25 this years on Saturday.” And Frank Scanlan, Shawlands, said: “Well done for printing an Ayr Gold Cup version of The Punter!

Origi, 26, made his first Reds start since January in Wednesday night’s 3-2 win over AC Milan in the Champions League. The Belgium forward impressed with an assist for Mo Salah’s vital second-half equaliser before cramp forced him off after the hour mark. Klopp is happy to have him at the club but admits he thought he’d be off in the last transfer window. The German said: “To be 100 per cent honest, of course I thought he would maybe leave in the summer. But the football world is a crazy place and people obviously forgot how good he is. “It is really difficult to get into this team. That’s just how it is and I have to decide about different positions, who I bring on, how I want to react before a game. “That’s why Div was not in, he did nothing wrong. “He trains, he gives everything and sometimes you still don’t make it into the squad. “That really can happen, especially when everybody is fit. “But for this game he was the right player to do it and he did really well. “He was not injured, he had cramps, that’s normal and so now let’s see. “I’m really happy I could give him the opportunity. “Divock is a great guy By cHRis McKeNNa and in 10 years when we look back he will be a Liverpool legend. But he is too young to be already seen as a legend so he has to play football.” Origi has scored some big goals for the Reds including two in the fightback victory against Barcelona in the 2019 Champions League. He then netted the second in the final to beat Spurs and lift the trophy. After Origi’s comeback show, AC Milan boss Stefano Pioli labelled Liverpool “dangerous” but admitted his side were overpowered. The Italians overturned a 1-0 deficit at the end of the first half thanks to quick goals from Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz against the run of play. But Liverpool’s dominance paid off after the interval as Salah made up for his earlier penalty miss with a goal and Jordan Henderson struck the winner. Pioli said: “We played a really tough opponent and we put in a huge effort right to the very end. It is pretty indicative of the level we have achieved thus far. “Liverpool are at a high level but we are not quite there yet.

Friday, September 17, 2021 in association with @Road_Record facebook.com/ScottishRoadRecord www.roadrecord.co.uk Classic rally event raises smiles of fun See more at www.road record. co.uk Pictures: BLUE PASSION and WILL BROADHEAD SCOTS petrolheads and classic car fans might have been lucky enough to catch sight of a feast of fine machines over the last few days. That’s because the Scottish Malts Rally, run by HERO-ERA, has been taking place across the country – covering 930 miles in total. The field of about 60 cars that entered has included everything from a 1928 4.5-litre Bentley Le Mans to a 1990 1.8-litre BMW 318i. Marques also among the mix take in Riley, Chevrolet, Jaguar, MG, Morgan, Datsun, Triumph, Austin Healey, Porsche, Lotus, Alfa Romeo, Mercedes, Renault and Rover. The eclectic bunch has been competing in challenging drives and performance tests starting at Dalmahoy Hotel on the western outskirts of Edinburgh and finishing there later today. But the scenic route has included the likes of the Tay Forest, Pitlochry, Cairngorms, Inverness, Spey Valley, Aberdeen, Strathmore, Crieff and Loch Lomond. Visits to distilleries and significant stately homes and castles has also been part of the fun for those taking part. After being forced to cancel last year’s event because of the Covid pandemic, it’s been a welcome 17th running of the event along a brand new route. Wake up to dangers By Giles Blair g.blair@roadrecord.co.uk MOTORISTS are being given advice on how to stay alert at the wheel as many return to the grind of the daily commute after a year of working from home. Research shows that most crashes are likely to happen within five miles of the home, as motorists switch off on repetitive journeys. In fact, one in every 25 fatal car crashes is related to fatigue – so experts from vehicle leasing firm Vanarama have come up with top tips to staying awake at the wheel. Firstly, if possible, time your journeys to avoid peak sleepiness periods. Drivers are 20 times more likely to fall Commuters get top tips on ways to avoid crashing while they’re tired More motoring news, videos and reviews at www.roadrecord.co.uk asleep at the wheel at 6am than at 10pm. Most people’s body clock has a natural dip, which causes drowsiness and reduced concentration, in the early morning between 2am and 6am and afternoon between 2pm and 4pm. Get cold air circulating around your car. If your vehicle is stuffy or overly warm, this will make you feel sleepy while driving. Open your windows or turn your air con on full blast to wake you up – but aim the air vents away from your eyes to avoid drying them out. Interestingly, research shows that chewing gum helps alleviate tiredness due to it stopping you from yawning. Play some upbeat music and try picking songs that you know the words to so that you can sing along and stimulate your brain. Vanarama recommends listening to punk or indie music, as an earlier study found they were the two genres that increase motorists’ heartbeats the most when driving – keeping them alert. Refrain from eating heavy carbs and sugary snacks before driving. While you may be tempted to eat crisps and chocolate as an afternoon pick-me-up in the office, they could be doing you more harm than good. Once they metabolise and the sugar spike in your bloodstream wears off, your drowsiness can increase even more – making you sleepier and more prone to an accident on your drive home. Exercise before you drive – working out increases the blood flow to your brain, which helps lower your level of stress hormones. So, cramming in a 20-minute workout on a morning before you drive to work will not only improve your fitness levels, but will help you feel more alert when driving. Vanarama also submitted a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to uncover the cities with the sleepiest drivers. It asked the DVLA for the number of drivers that have reported a sleep or tiredness-causing condition, which can affect their driving ability. Unsurprisingly, given its size, London topped the table with 1100 motorists with sleep-related conditions. This was then followed by Bristol in second place (477) and Birmingham (440). Glasgow, with 434 cases, was ranked fifth while Edinburgh with a listing of 177 drivers, was placed 15th. You can find out full details at www. vanarama.com.

2 @Road_Record facebook.com/ScottishRoadRecord www.roadrecord.co.uk Daily Record Prices revealed for new Fabia THE fourth generation of Skoda’s Fabia supermini will be priced from £14,905 when it arrives later in the year. That’s an increase of about £1000 over the current model but the newcomer is bigger all round and comes with more equipment. Built on one of parent group VW’s latest platforms, it has exceeded the four-metre length for the first time and boot space is up by 50 litres to 380 litres. Four trim grades will be available initially, with the line-up topping out from £18,980 for SE L models. The range will consist of S, SE Comfort, SE L and Colour Edition grades, with the SE Comfort and SE L trims aimed at drivers looking for a good-handling car that is well equipped. Colour Edition versions focus on style and have contrasting paintwork for the roof, wing mirror caps and alloy wheels. A sporty Monte Carlo trim will follow early 2022, with more details to be announced later. The engines are from VW’s EVO 1.0-litre range and will be available in 65, 85, 95 and 110PS outputs, with the higher-powered version coming with a seven-speed DSG box as standard. Skoda says that the boot capacity of the new model is the largest in the supermini class and all new Fabias will come with LED headlights, a range of driver assistance systems including road-edge detection and a colour touchscreen. High grade SE L versions will have a 9.2in display panel, sat nav and dual-zone air conditioning among their standard features. Mid-grade SE Comfort models are priced from £16,795 while the Colour Edition costs from £17,495. 33ENJOYABLE The MG5 EV SW is fun to drive, has plenty of creature comforts and good room to keep families happy on their travels See more at www.road record. co.uk Mazda upgrades CX-5 family SUV AN UPDATED version of the Mazda CX-5 will be on the road next year as the Japanese car maker goes about improving its popular SUV. It will be the first model to come with the Japanese brand’s new intelligent drive system, which enables the driver to select the most appropriate set-up with one touch of a switch. Mazda’s next generation of SkyActiv-Vehicle Architecture is also being used on the 2022 CX-5, further evolving the bodyshell, suspension and seats to improve ride comfort and reduce fatigue. Road noise has also been greatly reduced, particularly when driving on rough surfaces such as gravel. Some 4x4 model grades equipped with Mazda’s i-Activ AWD system further benefit from an Off-Road Mode, which makes driving feel easier on unmade, slippery surfaces. Externally, the car gets a new-look grille and front wing design, while the front and rear lamp clusters have also been restyled. New trim levels are also being introduced, with the three model line-up now being called Newground, Sport Black and GT Sport. The interior now comes with a wireless phone charging tray in the centre console and changes in the boot see the two-piece, reversible loadspace floorboard and the tailgate sill at same level to aid loading. Updated safety systems now include cruising and traffic support that helps reduce driver fatigue when stuck in congestion. Prices will be announced later in the year. Mighty Good.. THE MG5 is a breath of fresh air in the electric-car market for its genuine practicality, affordability and quality. Wearing the badge of the famous British marque, the MG5 EV SW (to use its Sunday name) is a smaller family estate car with a price that really makes eco-friendly motoring a possibility for many. By comparison, many alternative electric vehicles are either too small or too expensive for the average motorist – and sometimes both. But the MG5 doesn’t just win on those fronts as it also delivers a dynamic driving experience, which you might not expect for the money. Talking of which, there are four versions – the Excite costing from £25,095, on the road after the plug-in car grant, Exclusive at £27,595 and Long Range versions of both priced £26,495 and £28,995. All feature a 115kW/156PS motor driving the front wheels, with either a 52.5 or 61.1kWh battery – giving average ranges of 214 or 250 miles, which is more than enough for most people’s needs. I tested the car in the highest-spec version and found it enjoyable to drive thanks to its liveliness. In common with other electric vehicles, the linear acceleration created by the one-speed automatic gearbox is delightful and the MG hits A brand with a massive sporting heritage is helping to propel motorists into electric cars with the MG5 EV SW estate, reckons GILES BLAIR 60mph in just 7.3 seconds and tops out at 115mph. A smart, large, centre-console dial control for the gearing is supported by buttons that add to the pleasure by offering three drive modes and increasing the force of the brakes to regenerate battery power. The Eco, Normal and Sport modes are brilliant at providing the kind of relaxing or more engaging driving experiences you might want. They influence various factors concerning energy efficiency and the car’s handling and responses to driver input – in the same way that many such options work in traditionally powered cars. So I found myself enjoying relaxed cruising along motorways and having some real fun accelerating out of corners on country roads. A low centre of gravity created by the combination of the chassis-placing of the battery pack and the estate-car styling ensured excellent dynamics. And the MG5 drove well over all road surfaces except the most weather-ravaged. But even then, I’ve had much more expensive vehicles perform far worse. When it comes to rejuicing it, a 50kW charger will get you to 80 per cent in an hour, while a domestic 7kW wall box will get to 100 per cent in nine and a half hours. Handily, if you find you need to, a three-pin household plug charging option is also available and works well for topping up if you have concerns. The charging connection point is also cleverly concealed behind the MG badge on the front grille, which I thought was another nice touch. Otherwise, the MG5’s sleek looks make it stand out in the EV market and I admired the great use of pronounced contoured lines on the bodywork, along with the bright 16in alloy wheels. The flowing design was complemented by great use of chrome brightwork all around. I felt the way it was used to connect the front grille to the headlamps and integrate the tail lights across the boot was particularl effective. Step inside and the family practicalities are immediately obviou – but unexpected luxuries for the money are likely to impress as much The lack of a transmission tunnel creates genuine room for two adults up front and three kids in the back, with good storage options and four USB ports. The boot offers a minimum capacit of 464 litres – which is good for the holiday luggage – or 1456 litres for your DIY/flat pack furniture needs with the rear seats folded. The Exclusive comes with extreme comfortable leather seating and som fine interior chrome detailing as wel as a good feeling of durability. An eight-inch infotainment touchscreen significantly adds to proceedings with sat nav, smartphon integration, rear parking camera and access to other in-car functions. Other creature comforts on the tes model include keyless entry and star auto lights and wipers, cruise contro and an informative instrument cluste And the MG Pilot safety system features active emergency braking with pedestrian and bike detection, lane keep assist, traffic jam assist, intelligent speed limit assist and auto high beam. MG is certainly proving that electr vehicles can be a reality for the everyday motorist. More motoring news, videos and reviews at www.roadrecord.co.uk

ly e l t t, l r. Daily Record @Road_Record facebook.com/ScottishRoadRecord www.roadrecord.co.uk 3 Why it’s now easier to switch to an EV By Giles Blair g.blair@roadrecord.co.uk A LEADING Scottish electromobility expert has been explaining how electric cars really are becoming accessible to all motorists. Dave Pickles’ timely words of wisdom come after last week’s World EV Day and ahead of the global COP26 climate change conference being held in Glasgow in November. He highlighted the increasing affordability of new and secondhand electric cars, massive strides in battery technology, rapid rise in charging opportunities and government grants available. But, Dave, the boss of Glasgowbased Jorro sustainable energy company, is under no illusions and knows the public need to be better informed. Equally, he takes a pragmatic approach to the situation and accepts that the EV solution won’t yet work for drivers who travel for more than 25,000 miles a year. Nonetheless, Dave makes a strong case for the fact that electric cars are ideal for the majority of motorists. He said: “There’s a big disconnect between people’s perceptions about battery power and the reality. Battery technology has moved on massively in 10 years – it’s like the equivalent of going from a floppy disk to hard drive. “The battery packs now have a JJPUTTING MOTORISTS IN CHARGE Companies such as Jorro can fit domestic wallboxes to new-build and established properties warranty for at least 100,000 miles and some early EVs have managed more than 300,000 miles on the original battery. “There’s also a bigger range between charging that’s gone from about 60 miles in the early days to about 240 on average. “And owners of older cars can refresh them with more powerful, modern batteries because they are the same size. You can also just replace individual cells in the packs.” Dave was also keen to dispel myths about problems with electricity supplies in older properties when it comes to fitting domestic wallbox charging points. He explained: “Home chargers have been developed to protect against overload. All new chargers need to be able to handle varying levels of voltage supply. “It’s massively rare for us not to be able to install a charge point – and they can be put in most homes that have a private parking space.” And that applies to modern blocks of flats with car parks. Jorro has just installed the capability for 144 points at a complex in Edinburgh. The home owners can simply sign up to activate the points when they switch to using an EV. And for the many thousands of people in cities who don’t have off-street parking, Dave highlighted the rise in public facilities. He said: “Public charging is now coming through at quite a pace. Workplaces, supermarkets, fast-food outlets and hotel groups are all putting in charge points. “They realise that you can easily put in charging facilities for staff or customers – but you can’t put in petrol stations the same way!” As for users, he pointed out that for most commuters who travel less than 250 miles a week, it might mean they have to visit a public fast-charging facility once a week or so for less than an hour. Finally, Dave stressed that owning and driving electric cars is more affordable than many people think – especially now many mainstream marques are making them. He said: “Not everyone knows about the latest grants or zero per cent loans from the Scottish Government. “But these open up options for new and used electric cars. If you look at what’s available at the budget end of the market, you’ll find they have good specs and all the gadgets. “They are enjoyable to drive and can be engaging – with differing regeneration modes, for example. “And they are more practical, with more space inside for families because there’s no gearbox system or large engine taking up room.” More motoring news, videos and reviews at www.roadrecord.co.uk y . s y e ic

4 @Road_Record facebook.com/ScottishRoadRecord www.roadrecord.co.uk Daily Record Doune action is going to be a peak attraction this weekend THE King of hillclimbs is extending a royal welcome back to spectators as one of Scotland’s most famous motorsport venues gears up for a weekend of thrills over the next few days. This is the first time in two years that visitors have been allowed at Doune, known as the King of the Hills for its snaking 1350-metre course through the Perthshire countryside. It’s rightly regarded as one of the most challenging hillclimbs in the world. And to give motoring fans and others looking for a family day out an extra reason to come and By Al Suttie see Scotland’s fastest race cars in action, the ticket price has been reduced to just £5 for adults. Children aged 14 and under enjoy free entry when accompanied by adults, making the Doune Hillclimb an ideal family day out in the fresh air. There’s a packed competitive entry for the weekend, with cars ranging from pre-war classics to the latest high-tech single-seaters, and everything in between. And the Scottish Hillclimb Championship reaches its climax at Doune with the final rounds held on the Saturday and Sunday. There will be guaranteed close racing as Stuart Sugden in his GWR Raptor and Les Mutch in another Raptor battle it out for the national title. There are also plenty of class honours at stake, so keep an eye out for the fight between David Reid in his Subaru Impreza and Renault Clio driver Derek Rothnie.

Meanwhile, rally crews put on a top showing left and below Galloway Hills Rally images: Eddie Kelly Motorsport Photography See more at www.road record. co.uk Chasing the titles MOTORSPORT By Giles Blair g.blair@roadrecord.co.uk SCOTS motorsport aces were battling it out in style last weekend to ensure a thrilling end to the 2021 season. Reigning British GT champion Sandy Mitchell kept himself in the mix to retain the overall title, while Stewart Proctor and son Lewis succeeded in clinching the Silver-Am crown. On gravel, the Galloway Hills Rally was full of drama and incident to leave the Scottish Rally Championship (SRC) crown up for grabs for a few crews. Elsewhere, Tarran Mackenzie continued to press for the British Superbike Championship (BSB) and Wallace Menzies secured the British Hillclimb Championship (BHC). The Scottish Motor Racing Club (SMRC) also had an entertaining round as its competitors travelled south to Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire. The British GT contenders, which included Scotland’s Jonny Adam and Ian Loggie, faced the challenge of one Scots racers and rally crews are very much in the mix as season heads to a climax dry and another very wet race at Oulton Park in Cheshire. While none of the tartan talent got on the podium at the end of the first 60-minute encounter, better was to follow in the soaking second contest. Mitchell and Barwell motorsport team-mate Adam Balon managed to grab the number two step on the podium in their Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo. And not far behind was Loggie and Yelmer Buurman in their RAM Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3. The results mean that four crews are now realistically scrapping for glory in the decider at Donington on October 17. Forfar 21-year-old Mitchell said: “We’ve achieved exactly what we wanted to do this weekend, and that More motoring news, videos and reviews at www.roadrecord.co.uk was to make sure we’re in the fight to win the title in the final round. “Adam and I will go there determined to win the race. That’s all we can control. Do that, then we’ll see where we end up in the championship.” The Proctors were able to put in a couple of decent performances in their Balfe Motorsport 720S GT3 to secure the Silver-Am honours. Lewis said: “We’re pleased to win and it was fun out there this weekend. We’ve learned a lot and look forward to Donington.” Meanwhile, after struggling in the early stages, MINI WRC crew David Bogie and John Rowan eventually romped home with a 29-second lead in the Galloway Hills Rally. But as they were not in the SRC title fight, that meant the competition behind them was fierce. And Borders driver Garry Pearson and his Skoda Fabia R5 co-pilot Niall Burns finished second, despite losing their roof scoop, to strengthen their bid for the championship. There was a really intense battle for third place but Aberdeenshire’s Scott Beattie and former Scottish Champion co-driver Paula Swinscoe, from Lancashire, claimed the place in their Mitsubishi Evo 7. Securing the Scottish 2WD title, it was another good day out for Mark McCulloch and Michael Hendry in their Ford Escort Mk2. The battle for the overall title in the 2021 Championship is now a two-horse race going into the final round, the Carlisle Stages on October 24, between Ford Fiesta R5 pair Jock Armstrong/ Cammy Fair and Pearson/Burns. There was also plenty of drama in the BSB as McAMS Yamaha riders Jason O’Halloran and Tarran Mackenzie clashed and crashed out while leading the first of the races at Silverstone. But despite injuries – including broken hand and wrist bones for the Scot, who was initially declared unfit for the remaining encounters – they bounced back to claim the top two places in the brace of contests on Sunday, swapping the top step. Mackenzie now lies a very close second to his team-mate as the championship heads towards its “Showdown” conclusion involving the top contenders. Gould GR59M driver Wallace Menzies, however, has secured the BHC title in a closely fought season at Craigantlet, Northern Ireland, with one round to go. It was a double celebration as wife Nicola set a new ladies’ record at the same event. The SMRC adventure down south took in Citroen C1, MINI, Classics and Fiesta championships, as wells as an all-comers race for extra spice. Kyle Nisbet took the honours in both Citroen Cup races as did Triumph TR8 driver Andrew Graham in the classics, while Liam McGill and Simon Smail shared the Fiesta ST top steps. The MINI races are a favourite with everyone and Jamie Blake won the first two, with Michael Weddell also victorious. And John Kinmond was delighted to get the all-comers trophy in his Rover 3500. Overseas, Ryan Dalziel was in second place in his Era Motorsport LMP2 Oreca at Laguna Seca in California when he was shunted off the track by a rival in the final lap. It meant the Scot could only finish fourth in class the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race. This weekend sees Gordon Shedden, Rory Butcher and Aiden Moffat all heading south to Croft Circuit in North Yorkshire for the British Touring Car Championship. Midlothian’s Colin Noble and his Nielsen Racing Ligier team-mate Tony Wells will be hoping to further cement their lead in the Le Mans Cup LMP3 class at Belgium’s Spa Francorchamps. They will also be worth looking out for in the related European Le Mans Series competition.

Warm 4/1 favourite Poet’s Magic tried to make all but he had no answer to a late challenge from his rival, who scored by a neck under Paul Mulrennan. Tim Easterby is thriving and kicked off a double when Bollin Margaret (2/1 Fav) took the Premier Fillies’ Handicap. The four-year-old was sent on a furlong out by David Allen and stayed on grimly to beat market rival Alyara (7/2) by a length.

Michael Dods’ AZURE BLUE (1.0) rates a highly confident selection in the opening novices’ contest. The El Kabeir filly made a decent debut when third to Milbanke in a fair event at Redcar in July. The juvenile soon built on that effort when just held by the progressive Perfect News at Carlisle. LETHAL LEVI (1.35) should gun down his rivals for in-form handler Karl Burke in the EBF Nursery. The colt relished tackling six furlongs when chinning Burning Emotion in a strong Hamilton maiden. An excellent second on his next two starts, he hacked up from Van Zant in a decent Redcar novice. The juvenile still sits on a winning mark so ought to go one better under the skilled Pierre-Louis Jamin. Joseph Murphy’s WHITE LAVENDER (2.45) should breeze to victory in the Scottish Sprint Stakes. Impressive on debut at Navan, the speedster stayed on track with fine efforts at Cork and Naas. The filly ran another stormer when pipped by Frenetic in an ultra competitive handicap at Cork. She was then a shade unlucky not to reel in Master Matt in Listed company at Tipperary last time. The three-year-old was staying-on gamely that day so stands to gain some compensation slightly up in trip. MARK’S CHOICE (3.20) can lift the valuable Ayr Bronze Cup for skilled handler Sam England. The sprinter was sent for wind surgery by his connections after a string of poor efforts in the spring. That proved to be an inspired choice as he went on to thrash Ventura Express in the Silver Trophy at Ripon. The gelding ran another blinder when second to the progressive Wade’s Magic at the same track. The five-year-old should be primed so ought to strike at a venue where he has excelled. PRINCE IMPERIAL (3.55) can reign supreme for Richard Hughes in the Virgin Bet Handicap. The four-year-old stayed upwardly mobile as a stayer when routing Tashkhan at Pontefract. He then ran better than the bare result when sixth to Arcadian Sunrise in a better event at York. The tough gelding remains well treated so can resume winning ways in these calmer waters.

The gelding ran a blinder when third behind Golden Melody in a competitive Beverly handicap. The three-year-old produced another career best when taking second to Empirestateofmind at Thirsk. That race is working out pretty well so this likeable type can score under the excellent Ben Curtis. NUANCE (2.20) is also looking good to extend William Haggas’ winning streak in a cracking nursery at Newbury. The son of Frankel put in his best shift yet when outbattling Prosperous Voyage at Chester. That was a high-class novice so the juvenile can defy a welter burden on his handicap bow. WESTOVER (2.55) can land the ever informative Haynes, Hanson & Clark Conditions Stakes. Ralph Beckett’s colt oozed class when hosing up from Bullet Force on debut at Sandown. The juvenile looks a real group performer so seems set to get the better of some exciting rivals. D’BAI (3.30) can give Charlie Appley more big-race glory in the Dubai Duty Free Cup. The gelding hit back when second to Glorious Journey in a Doncaster Group Two on Saturday. The seven-year-old should be fighting fit so can add this tricky Listed contest to his CV. Roger Charlton has hit form so MAKRAM (4.05) stands out in the Dubai Duty Free Handicap. The gelding handled the step up to 1m 4f well when edged by Volcanic Sky at Newmarket. The four-yearold remains nicely unexposed so can triumph under top rider James Doyle. NEENEE’S CHOICE (4.35) should seal a sparkling four-timer for thriving Andrew Balding. The gelding improved again when routing Lady Reset on his first run over 1m 2f at Salisbury. That is excellent form so this admirably consistent type ought to make light of another 4lb penalty to power home. SERGEANT (3.38) can take command for Milton Harris over the jumps at Newton Abbot. The hurdler left last season’s form behind when crushing Gerard Mentor over track and trip. The gelding is open to progress in handicaps so stands primed to shrug off a well-deserved 9lb penalty. EASYRUN DE VASSY (4.13) can continue Paul Nicholls flying start in the conditionals’ hurdle.
