Under-fire Kolo Toure backed by Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers

Two shameful mistakes by Kolo Toure led to a 2-0 victory for Borussia Monchengladbach at Celtic Park.
Despite defeat in Germany, Brendan Rodgers expresses pride in Celtic's performance against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers insists he will have no hesitation throwing Kolo Toure back into the Old Firm spotlight after his Champions League nightmare.

The Ivorian was to blame for both the goals the Hoops conceded in Wednesday night's 2-0 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach at Parkhead.

But Rodgers refuses to point the finger of blame at his former Liverpool lieutenant.

Saido Berahino will not play for West Brom at Liverpool on Saturday.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis has insisted that Saido Berahino needed to be taken out of the side and placed on a personal fitness plan.

The striker is now doing extra work as well as training with the first team after the club decided he was overweight and unfit to play.

Tests found he was eight pounds over his ideal weight and the 23-year-old will not feature at Liverpool on Saturday.

Berahino has not scored since February, a 14-game run, and has not played in the Baggies' past four matches having...

David Moyes can input long-term plan amid Sunderland relegation fight

David Moyes says last-place Sunderland need a win to get their season going and to gain some momentum.

David Moyes has insisted he is big enough to handle the pressure of implementing a long-term plan at Sunderland in the face of yet another battle for Premier League survival.

The 53-year-old has endured an eventful week in the wake of a 2-0 defeat at Stoke which left the Black Cats rooted to the foot of the table, a depressingly familiar situation in recent seasons.

Sources on Wearside have dismissed claims that a Chinese consortium is ready to reinstall Sam Allardyce as manager should it mount...

Barcelona's Arda Turan and Rafinha out vs. Valencia due to injuries

Barcelona will be without Jordi Alba and Gerard Pique, but the FC crew expect them to win easily at Valencia.

Both Arda Turan and Rafinha have been ruled out of Barcelona's La Liga game against Valencia on Saturday.

Turkish international Turan hurt his elbow in a training session on Friday, and Barca said in a statement that he will be absent for this weekend's...

Christian Benteke's penalty miss after a great week with Belgium disappoints Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew.

The Eagles manager sat down with Benteke after the defeat to discuss the penalty and, while he subsequently decided to keep the Belgian on penalty duty, he warned he has to "make sure" he scores his...
