    Eddie Jones slams Scotland fans who threw plastic beer bottle at head of Neil Craig


    & # 39; We did not expect beer bottles to be thrown away, that's a new trick & # 39 ;: Eddie Jones touches fans who threw a plastic bottle at the head of staff in the back room before England conquered Scotland when officials launched probe into ugly scenes

    • Officials investigate the ugly scenes that unfolded before the Calcutta Cup
    • When England arrived, it became a member of the backroom team hit by a beer bottle
    • Eddie Jones expressed concern about the incident after the victory over Scotland

    Eddie Jones raised concerns about the incident that occurred after the England team coach arrived at the stadium.

    With fans busy on stairs and walkways above the vehicle, there was a typical hostile reception, including loud angry and offensive gestures.

    Jones was angry about what he saw as a deliberate act.

    & # 39; We did not expect beer bottles to be thrown away, that is a new trick, & # 39; said Jones. "It's a pretty good performance, throwing beer bottles. You must be brave to throw a beer bottle. Neil has a hard head and there is not much in it! He'll be fine. & # 39;

    Asked if there was a possibility that the RFU would make a formal complaint, Jones added: "It's not going to do anything?"

    "Everyone knows it, so someone can do something about it. It's not good behavior, right? If that is how Scottish fans will be respectful, then we must acknowledge it and continue. & # 39;

    The Scottish RU on Sunday night claimed that there was no evidence that the bottle was thrown away or that it hit anyone. But Nik Simon, the Mail on Sunday rugby correspondent, witnessed the incident and confirmed that Craig was hit.

    Ellis Genge, the try-scorer of England in the 13-6 win, was furious. & # 39; That's not right, & # 39; said the Leicester prop.

    & I'll tell you a fact, if that happened in Twickenham – which it never does – we would be called "English this" and "English that", and "Can't believe the lack to respect from the English, X, Y and Z ".

    & # 39; But it happens at Murrayfield and everyone is happy with it and says, "Oh, it's good for the game". & # 39;

    Unlike other Six Nations stadiums, the layout of Murrayfield forces the visiting team to enter the gallery among the supporters of the house on the walkways.

    This episode can put pressure on the SRU to address those arrangements for the safe arrival of visiting teams.

    Clyde 0-3 Celtic: Neil Lennon’s side ease towards Scottish Cup quarter finals with victory


    It is clearly going to cost more than 80 miles per hour for Celtic & hope for a fourth consecutive Scottish Cup – blow off success

    Even with Storm Ciara making circumstances on Broadwood, sometimes on Neil Lennon's side, the 33rd consecutive success in the old league and their now usual place in the last eight were not denied.

    The eighth in League One, the Clyde outfit of Danny Lennon was wild and brave, but devoid of the belief and quality that their class of 2006 showed, because they had the Celtic side of Gordon in an early round famously eliminated.

    Unlike that barely credible opportunity, Celtic did it here – not at their best, but sharp and dedicated enough to ensure that their stranglehold at the tournament would not be released. With the League Cup already under lock and key, their search for four trophies continues.

    The issue was almost resolved before the parties reached the sanctuary of the changing rooms. Olivier Ntcham sent a shot of corkscrew in the wind and in the far corner with Scott Brown, who turned five minutes after the break.

    The third came from a tap-in by substitute Vakoun Bayo when the clock struck 90 minutes. It was in more than the Lennon men earned.

    MATCH FACTS

    Clyde: Mitchell, Howie, Rumsby, Lang, Livingstone, Grant, Cuddihy (Johnston 85), McStay (Cunningham 69), Rankin, Lamont (Love 79), Goodwill

    Subs: Smith, Johnston, McNiff, Wylde, McGee

    Celtic : Bain, Bauer, Jullien, Ajer, Bolingoli Mbombo, Ntcham, Brown, Forrest (Hayes 71), Christie, Elyounoussi, Klimala (B ayo 75)

    Subs: Serum, Taylor, Griffiths, Shved, Forster

    Objectives : Ntcham 16, Brown 40, Bayo 90

    Booked : Lamont

    ]

    Referee : Bobby Madden (Scotland)

    While Celtic did not count the number goals achieved that they threatened after the result was brought over all reasonable, it was still a competent enough show in completely horrible circumstances.

    Patryk Klimala got his first start through Lennon with Mohamed Elyounoussi who made his first performance of the year. Although Scott Bain started for Fraser Forster, this was – in any case – a strong Celtic side.

    You should have lived in a bunker for the past week to be unaware of the current Clyde side connections with Celtic. The backbone of their team was Chris McStay and Raymond Grant, sons of Paul and Peter, respectively, who put their stuff in the back of Danny Lennon.

    While a repeat of the 2006 shock against Roy Keane et al. Never looked at truthfully on the cards, the Bully Wee will take some comfort that they remained competitive all the time.

     Olivier Ntcham, celebrating his 24th birthday, scored his seventh goal in all competitions. "Class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Olivier Ntcham celebrating its 24th birthday scored its seventh goal in all competitions

    Scott Rumsby clattered within two minutes from Klimala that if they went down, they would fight down.

    With the corner flags sometimes bent horizontally, a certain degree of error had to be forgiven, Christopher The pass from Jullien to Moritz Bauer who went straight out of the park, an early example of that.

    Clyde had their moments of hope before Celtic took the game past them. Mark Lamont wisely took the option to shoot at sight from 25 meters with his shot just wide bent.

    In general, however, the traffic was toward the goal of David Mitchell.

    With Celtic beginnings to settle, Brown found Olivier Ntcham. The Frenchman's powerful shot was deflected and had no sting by the time it reached into the keeper's arms.

    Michell then did well to understand Elyounoussi's effort, the stock came from Bauer's cross from the right.

    Clyde's resistance lasted exactly 16 minutes. Boli Bolingoli, selected for Greg Taylor in the back left, unpacked Ntcham in a seemingly non-threatening position on the left.

    After observing the conditions, Ntcham took them a few times to make them fly. The ball moved in one direction than the other, cheating on the helpless Mitchell and found the far corner. It already felt like a question how much Celtic would win over it.

    Christie took a good chance for a quick second and hit the wall with a free kick after John Rankin flattened Klimala.

    Clyde did everything they could to prevent Celtic from coming into their stride. They cut and nibbled ankles, launched themselves into tackles, even tripled if necessary.

    But although the gusts of sweeping Broadwood certainly helped them in that respect, they also prevented them from bringing the ball down and having a great effect. David Goodwillie seemed to be in a different zip code at that time.

    Slackness from Bolingoli had an unfounded chance of leveling them. But McStay's shot was defective and didn't go as far as Bain.

    Christie looked into the mood here. He had saved a quick attempt and, after taking a short corner from Forrest, struck a shot in the corner that Mitchell had struck but just drifted wide at the last minute.

    The draw should have been more than eight minutes from the break.

    Ntcham & # 39; s long ball ours was collected by Forrest who subsequently released Klimala. Pole took a firm first touch and then tied the keeper only for him to throw a hand to block instinctively.

    But Clyde & # 39; s hope for an unlikely comeback evaporated even before she drank a welcome cup of tea.

    At 40 minutes, Christie & # 39; s corner was spurred from the left by Klimala. Brown stopped Barry Cuddihy and pushed the ball over the line at the nearby post.

    Michell & # 39; s afternoon was just as busy as he had expected. He did well to handle Christie's swishing efforts shortly after the turn, and then pulled Klimala's attempt to dump out of the sky.

    The second half was a more pedestrian affair. In the absence of Odsonne Edouard, Christie saw his chances of a free kick, but rather wasted a chance to get his name on the score sheet that way, not being able to hit the goal with a dead ball chance that dead center used to be.

    Jonny Hayes replaced Forrest with Bayo which relieved Klimala.

    Goodwill had at least had to work for Bain when he was seen 20 meters outside, but his weak effort left Bain undisturbed.

    Bayo had a decent chance at the counter, making it three, but after he had done the heavy part, planing was done. Clearly steered by Christie, he threw a shot into the side net when it seemed easier to score.

    Christie hit the top of the bar with a floating attempt after being played by Brown before Bayo finally had a moment to enjoy.

    Moritz Bauer was the provider with an eruption on the sidelines and a cut. This time Bayo could not miss it and not.

    Neil Critchley wants Liverpool starlets to push on after they ‘did club proud’ in Shrewsbury win  


    & # 39; This is we, this is what we stand for and you'd better be ready & # 39 ;: Neil Critchley wants his stars in Liverpool to keep pushing themselves on Anfield after they & # 39 were proud of the club & # 39; win in FA Cup

    by Dominic King for MailOnline

    Neil Critchley insisted Liverpool & # 39; s young stars to use theirs FA Cup heroic as a springboard for better things while enjoying the best night of his career.

    Liverpool made it clear that their Jurgen Klopp and their senior players were absent with a calm and measured performance at Anfield that was too much for Shrewsbury, whose manager Sam Ricketts admitted that his team & # 39 could not get close to the novices because they lost 1-0.

    Critchley, the head coach under the age of 23, celebrated for the Cup at the final whistle and then returned to the locker room to find messages of congratulations from Klopp, whose advice to Critchley was for the fourth repeat for his team to & # 39; go play the Liverpool way & # 39 ;.

    " I enjoyed it; the players did that, you could see the looks in the eyes of the supporters. There is real passion. The connection after the Aston Villa (Carabao Cup) match may have become somewhat stronger and I think we have done it again.

    & # 39; The players have made the club proud. Full body, absolutely ridiculous. They stayed until the end and saw the boys give everything. & # 39;

    Critchley added: & # 39; Jurgen only gives you total clarity; believe, play the Liverpool way, go for it. And that is what the first team does. This is us, this is how we play, this is what we stand for and you'd better be ready. That is fantastic for me to share. & # 39;

    Curtis Jones rises to the challenge after Neil Critchley made him Liverpool’s youngest captain


    Captain Curtis Jones takes up the challenge after Liverpool's Neil Critchley gives him the best gift as the club's youngest skipper ever

    • Curtis Jones led Liverpool against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup on Tuesday
    • That made Jones, 19, the youngest club captain ever
    • Jones was the hero of round three when he was a excellent goal scored against Everton

    There was a lot of entertainment in the Melwood media room on Monday when the subject of who was supposed to be captain Liverpool .

    Pedro Chirivella – the oldest and most experienced member of this boy's brigade – seemed the natural choice, given that he had fulfilled the role in the Carabao Cup quarterfinals in Aston Villa when the senior team was 4,000 miles away in Qatar. The other candidate was Curtis Jones.

    "It's really a shot at the coin," Neil Crithley, the Liverpool coach under 23 with a significant smile. "But if Curtis gives me the coin, you know for sure it's a two-headed person!"

    Jones, the hero of round three, when he scored a pretty magnificent goal to beat Everton out of competition, grew up in the center of town and glorified Steven Gerrard with dreams that one day he would imitate his hero.

    Despite all his natural self-confidence and self-confidence, he could never have believed that it would happen so quickly. This was the ultimate birthday present: five days after 19 years, Jones entered the history books and became Liverpool's youngest skipper. year and 250 days). Whatever your feelings are about the fact that the main players are gone and Jurgen Klopp is not present, nothing will dilute this specific moment in Jones & # 39; career.

<p> <noscript> <img id= Jones was one of Liverpool & # 39 ; s star players on a night when young people really kept their own

    You could see at an early stage that the responsibility for leading a team of newcomers would not be a heavy burden. Jones was in the middle of it right from the start, aggressive and determined and bursting with desire to push Liverpool forward.

    He is of course a player who still has a lot to learn, but one thing is certain that his attitude – and ability – have given him the ability to fulfill his potential in a club where you have to be an elite if you want thrive.

    One flurry, from the 27th minute to the 31st, gave you the best example of his character. Jones smashed Ro-Shaun Williams with a drag back that fooled the Shrewsbury defender, but he was slapped in the face for his problems.

    Medical attention was required and because Jones was treated before the end of Anfield Road, he was confronted with chants of "he is going to cry!"; if the noisy traveling fans thought he could be a cow, Jones's next act was to offer a bold & # 39; Rabona & # 39; cross.

    Jones is not a conventional artist, but his ability to take risks, his willingness to entertain and – above all – his determination to thrive helps him stand out. This is one from the Academy that has the opportunity to graduate cum laude.

    Neil Danns in dreamland as 37-year-old prepares to face Man United in the FA Cup with Tranmere


    In August Neil Danns stood outside Gigg Lane, umbrella in his hand, and not only encouraged the throbbing rain, but whatever questions the Bury supporters had for the captain of their club about its future.

    The answers came to the fore of what they had all been afraid of, with the Shakers expelled from the Football League days later. Danns knew, just like everyone else, from the players to the kitman, that he would have to look for another job.

    Five months later and Danns will stand in line for the FA Cup fourth round against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon. Even Danns did not expect that.

    Danns knows he was one of the lucky ones. He is now 37, more than 12 years since he last appeared in the Premier League for Birmingham in a career that has brought him to Crystal Palace, Bolton and Leicester City.

    He was on his way to international service at Guyana when he received a call from Tranmere asking if he would like to meet manager Micky Mellon.

    & I was immediately enthusiastic & # 39 ;, says Danns. & # 39; As a Merseyside boy, I had always grown up with a view to Tranmere, one of the local clubs. I always felt that I would end up there someday. & # 39;

    Danns has 19 appearances for Rovers this season, the last time when Tranmere eliminated the Premier League-side Watford in their re-arranged repeat in Prenton Park, rescheduled for a field full of water, 3- 0 came to take a draw in the first meeting.

    United comes to town on Sunday and the opportunity is up. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under increasing pressure, the United fans have engaged the owners. Has there ever been a better time to cope with them, especially on Tranmere & # 39; s own pitch? Solskjaer has told his players to expect divots.

    & # 39; Everyone buzzes & # 39 ;, says Danns. & # 39; You can already feel the excitement. It is such a huge game and we are really looking forward to it. & # 39;

    & Everyone who participates in the game and does not believe we have a chance has the wrong attitude. We are realistic, we know that it is a big question.

    & # 39; Regardless of whether they are struggling, they have talent. They only struggle by their standard. We cannot precede ourselves.

    & # 39; They are still fifth in the Premier League, which is no easy feat. Struggling for Manchester United is different than struggling for a lower division. & # 39;

    Tranmere wrestles herself, in the relegation zone of League One that has achieved successive promotions, but Danns believes the FA Cup has given the club the belief that it can & # 39; really try & # 39; in the second half of the season – and there is still the belief that the Cup trip can continue.

    & # 39; We know that in one-off games anything can happen. You must have that faith. But we also have to enjoy, especially when you think where the club comes from. & # 39;

    There is also a personal side to the band for Danns. As a lifelong fan of Liverpool, where his son Jayden is also part of the academy, it is always nice to beat United. But above all, he knows that the time he has left on the field, at 37, will not last forever.

    Looking for a straight red in the corner pocket and then screwing the cueball in a sturdy red suit, Maguire took the shot with great force.

    But it didn't quite go according to plan, the red rattles with the jaws of the bag before it bounces up while the cueball somehow jumped over the pack and onto the table.

    Incredibly, the red landed with such a spider that he rolled back and into the bag, much to the delight of Maguire.

     But while Maguire celebrated the red pot, he did not notice the cueball on the table "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>

    Instead, he was greeted by an unbelieving expression on Robertson's face before and both players and the referee broke out laughing.
