Celtic star: ‘I’ve signed for Rangers but don’t tell anyone!’

first_imgCeltic play Rangers on Sunday 1 February in the first Old Firm meeting since 2012.Ahead of the Hampden Park clash, talkSPORT caught up with Hoops fan Jim Kerr of Simple Minds fame (and Alan Brazil’s mate) to discuss a fixture he thinks is wilder than the English and Milan derbies he has seen.Kerr also revealed how Simple Minds were probably among the first people to know about former Celtic player Mo Johnston’s controversial move to Rangers from Nantes in 1989.However, when the player told the band the news over a few beers, they did not believe it. Surely if Johnston was returning to Scotland after two years in France, it would only be to one club, right?Simple Minds’ new album, ‘Big Music’ is out now. See for more.last_img

Classic Transfer: Liverpool break British transfer record to sign Dutch international

first_imgLiverpool splashed out £4 million to sign Sander Westerveld from Dutch outfit Vitesse in June 1999.Such a sum would be regarded as a knock-down price in today’s vastly inflated market, but the fee broke the British transfer record for a goalkeeper 16 years ago.The towering Netherlands shot stopper had earned his first senior international cap against Brazil just one week prior to his move to Anfield, having helped Vitesse qualify for Europe, and deserved his shot at the big time.Although Westerveld was far from a household name, it seemed as though the Merseysiders were in safe hands due to Gerard Houllier’s previously shrewd transfer business.The Dutchman replaced David James between the sticks and achieved instant success during his debut season on these shores, conceding the fewest amount of goals in the Premier League. 2 2 Sander Westerveld The goalkeeper went on to play in the FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup finals as Liverpool landed a treble, of sorts, a year later.However, Westerveld had failed to convince the club’s fan base fully, due to several lapses in concentration.The shot-stopper began the next season as first-choice, despite doubts in regards to his longevity.Yet, after Westerveld allowed a somewhat feeble long-range strike from Bolton Wanderers’s Dean Holdsworth squirm under his body and into the net in August 2001, the ongoing debate over the Dutchman’s long-term future was reopened.Houllier had seen enough.Seven days after Westerveld’s clanger at the Reebok Stadium, which proved to be his final game for the club, Liverpool completed a double swoop for Chris Kirkland and Jerzy Dudek from Coventry City and Feyenoord respectively.Having lost his place for both club and country, Westerveld was urged to move on to reignite his career and, crucially, get more game time.Real Sociedad offered the Dutchman an escape route and he duly signed for the Spanish outfit for £3.4 million in December 2001. Not the most glamorous of exits, we’re sure you’ll agree.last_img read more

Lukaku UPDATE: Everton striker ‘agrees terms’ to join new club

first_imgRomelu Lukaku is poised to leave Everton this summer after ‘agreeing terms’ to join a new club, according to widespread reports.The Belgian striker’s future at Goodison Park has been an ongoing topic of debate over the past season after hitting another impressive tally of 25 Premier League goals.Lukaku is desperate to play Champions League football and to win the Premier League title, and he has been linked with a move back to former club Chelsea as well as a switch to Manchester United.But now the striker has revealed talks have begun and an agreement has already been reached with ‘THE club’, though he has kept his next destination close to his chest.Speaking after Belgium’s 2-1 win over the Czech Republic on Monday, the 25-year-old revealed that he and his agent have a clear idea of where his future lies…and that is it not on Merseyside.Lukaku told Belgian newspaper HLN: “We are now in talks with the [unnamed] club and I am looking forward.“I want to play in the Champions League and try to win the Premier League – that would be best of all.”Asked by the Belgian press if he could stay at Everton, Lukaku is quoted as saying: “That’s not really an option, I think. That was quite clear.”Then, quizzed if a return to Chelsea is on the cards, he added with a wink and a laugh: “No comment. We will see.“My agent knows what’s going to happen and I know as well,” he later told Sky Sports.“I’m staying calm and we have an agreement with the club as well. We stay calm and at least we have a direction where we want to go.“I’m just going to rest for a few days and then just prepare for next season.”This latest development comes as a big blow to Everton fans, who were assured earlier in the season that their star man would pen a new and improved deal with the club.Lukaku’s agent Mino Raiola told talkSPORT in December that the striker ‘s new contract was ’99 per cent agreed’, but he revealed last month that Lukaku is instead likely to make the next step in his career this summer.Speaking to talkSPORT host Jim White, Raiola said: “[Lukaku] had a promise that if certain clubs came in for him this summer [he’d leave].“We are not in concrete talks at the moment, but if the price is right for Everton and the project is right [for Lukaku] he will make another step. But we are not there yet.”Read that story IN FULL here! Is Lukaku set for a move back to Stamford Bridge? 1last_img read more
