THE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON HAILS BHOYS AFTER SUPER OLD FIRM WIN

first_imgFROM NEIL DOHERTY AT CELTIC PARK: Neil Lennon heaped praised on his team and fans – and had a good word for the Rangers manager and supporters too – as Celtic crowned a superb season with an easy 3-0 win over their Old Firm rivals.There is some speculation that this may be the last Old Firm game for a while because if Rangers do go into liquidation, they could be in Division 3 next season.“Rangers ’til I die” sang the visiting supporters. “Rangers ’til July” was the Hoops fans’ response.With the SPL title already sewn up, Celtic enjoyed this match and certainly the fans did too.It had all started differently this afternoon.Rangers had started brightly, but any resistance seemed to disappear when the brilliant Charlie Mulgrew dived unmarked to head Celtic into a 17th-minute lead. Kris Commons chipped beautifully over goalkeeper Allan McGregor with a super finish just 14 minutes.And Gary Hooper blasted in from distance nine minutes after the break to seal the win.Neil Lennon had a few words for Ally McCoist afterwards: “It was as emphatic an Old Firm win as I’ve seen for a Celtic team for quite a while.“I think Ally’s been left high and dry by a lot of people.“And basically he’s been the spokesperson for the club for the last three or four months.” “They’ve had a tough week and Ally’s had to deal with things that football managers shouldn’t have to deal with.“That’s a huge distraction from what he’s trying to do and, in his first season as well, he’s had to take on a lot.“I wouldn’t have liked to be in his shoes.”Celtic, who had already clinched the title, are now 21 points clear of the former champions, who were docked 10 points for going into administration. “What’s gone on, Rangers are getting punished for it, the fans are suffering for it, but I think Ally’s the one who’s suffered more than anybody,” said Lennon.Lennon and McCoist were at each other’s throats last March – but that’s way behind him.“There’s tensions always around these games, but I think we have a healthy respect professionally for each other,” he said.“It is a dog-eat-dog business, it’s me or him, and it’s my day today, but he’s had a couple of days at Ibrox this year where they’ve come out on top.“From a personal point of view, I’ve got a lot of time for the guy, but professionally I have to do my job and what’s best for Celtic.”Lennon was delighted with the performance of his side, who had lost the reverse fixture 3-2 at Ibrox last month.“It has been a great day for the club – and the players and the supporters,” he said.“I couldn’t be more happy with the performance.“We adapted to the system after about 15 to 20 minutes and we were excellent.“I wanted them to start the second half well and we did that and, to be fair, Allan McGregor’s made a brilliant save from Joe Ledley and then we score a great third goal.“And, after that, it could have been a question of how many.“But, overall, I can’t ask much more of the team today.“We were exceptional. It is really difficult to single out players, but the whole team as a unit was magnificent.”THE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON HAILS BHOYS AFTER SUPER OLD FIRM WIN was last modified: April 29th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:celtic 3 rangers 0THE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON HAILS BHOYS AFTER SUPER OLD FIRM WINlast_img read more

Rioting in Paris suburbs spreads to other cities

first_imgAUBERVILLIERS, France – Marauding youths set fire to cars and warehouses and pelted rescuers with rocks early today, as the worst rioting in a decade spread from Paris to other French cities. The U.S. warned Americans against taking trains to the airport via strife-torn areas. A savage assault on a bus passenger highlighted the dangers of travel in Paris’ impoverished outlying neighborhoods, where the violence has entered its second week. Attackers doused the woman, in her 50s and on crutches, with a flammable liquid and set her afire as she tried to get off a bus in the suburb of Sevran on Wednesday, judicial officials said. The bus had been forced to stop because of burning objects in its path. She was rescued by the driver and hospitalized with severe burns. Justice Minister Pascal Clement deplored the incident, saying it caused him “great emotion.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Rioters burned more than 500 vehicles Friday as the unrest grew beyond the French capital for the first time. Unrest returned to the streets in the evening and early today, the ninth night in a row. Police said troublemakers fired bullets into a vandalized bus and burned 85 more cars in Paris and Suresnes, just to the west. In Meaux, east of Paris, officials said youths stoned rescuers aiding someone who had fallen ill. Meanwhile, warehouses in Suresnes and Aubervilliers, on the northern edge of Paris, were set ablaze. Officials said other fires raged outside the capital in Lille, Toulouse, and Rouen, while an incendiary device was tossed at the wall outside a synagogue in Pierrefitte, northwest of Paris. Some 30 mayors from the Seine-Saint-Denis region where the unrest started Oct. 27 met Friday to make a joint call for calm. Claude Pernes, mayor of Rosny-sous-Bois, denounced a “veritable guerrilla situation, urban insurrection” that has taken hold. A national police spokesman, Patrick Hamon, said there appeared to be no coordination among gangs in different areas. But he said youths in individual neighborhoods were communicating by cell-phone text messages or e-mail – arranging meetings and warning each other about police operations. The violence started Oct. 27 after the accidental electrocution of two teenagers who believed police were chasing them in the Seine-Saint-Denis region, dominated by low-income housing projects. Since then riots have swelled into a broader challenge against the French state and its security forces. The violence has exposed deep discontent in neighborhoods where African and Muslim immigrants and their French-born children are trapped by poverty, unemployment, racial discrimination, crime, poor education and housing. During the day Friday, the burned remains of at least 520 cars littered Parisian streets, an increase from previous nights. Five police officers were lightly injured by youths throwing stones or bottles, the Interior Ministry said. At a depot in Trappes, to the southwest, 27 buses were incinerated, officials said. The commuter train line linking Paris to Charles de Gaulle airport ran limited service Friday after two trains were targeted Wednesday night. The U.S. Embassy called the protests “extremely violent” and warned travelers against taking trains to the airport because they pass through the troubled area. Russia, meanwhile, warned citizens against visiting the suburbs. The Foreign Ministry said it was concerned that foreign media coverage was exaggerating the situation. “I don’t have the feeling that foreign tourists in Paris are in any way placed in danger by these events,” ministry spokesman Jean-Baptiste Mattei said, adding that officials were “sometimes a bit surprised” by the foreign coverage. Still, the violence has alarmed the government of President Jacques Chirac, whose calls for calm have gone unheeded. “This is the first time (suburban violence) has lasted so long and the government appears taken aback at the magnitude,” said Pascal Perrineau, director of the Center for Study of French Political Life. There were “few direct clashes” with security forces late Thursday and early Friday, however, no bullets fired at police, and far fewer large groups of rioters, said Jean-Francois Cordet, the top government official in Seine-Saint-Denis. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ballyness Bay farms spark call for debate on aquaculture licences

first_imgA debate is being sought in the Seanad following the granting of 14 aquaculture licences at Ballyness Bay in Falcarragh.The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine last week granted 14 of 18 applications for licenses to create clam and oyster farms at the bay near Cloughaneely. Local campaigners have strongly opposed the development over fears that the farms would affect the local landscape and tourism.In light of the issue, Donegal Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has called on the Minister to come before the Seanad to debate the processing of aquaculture licences. Senator Ó Domhnaill told the Dáil that the Save Ballyness Bay group will face costs of up to €2,800 to appeal the department’s decision.He raised questions over the timeframe of the application process: “The local community are deeply annoyed at the decision, taken swiftly by the Minister, in light of the fact that, in general, such applications take up to two years for a decision to be made.“The decision in this case was made within approximately six months of the applications being submitted.“There are significant questions to be answered about the public consultation process, given that the local community were not provided with the opportunity to make submissions prior to the Minister’s decision,” Senator Ó Domhnaill said. Speaking in the Seanad yesterday, Senator Ó Domhnaill asked the Minister to come before the House to discuss the issue early in the new year. Ballyness Bay farms spark call for debate on aquaculture licences was last modified: December 11th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
