pull, so to speak. but for these guys, they want the tournament, the wood rather roger be going through that match than me. to football now. and two huge british derbys this weekend — first up is the old firm match, between rangers and celtic. but once again, sectarian chanting has overshadowed build up to the fixture. with uefa charging rangers with racism for a second time. the club have been ordered to close a 3,000—seat section — for theirfirst europa league group game at ibrox. as punishment for sectarian chanting against legia warsaw last week. chris mclaughlin reports. in terms of football, rangers are moving on. through to the europa league group stages after a win over legia warsaw. this is a club that cannot escape the dark cloud of sectarianism. last week, it was ordered to leave 3000 seats free for last night's game against legia warsaw.
a uefa charge of racist behaviour, notably sectarian singing. today, something similar. a charge of racist behaviour once again relating to the game against legia warsaw last week. once again, rangers will have to leave part of the stadium closed for the next european game here. if it happens again, there is the real possibility this place will be closed down for the next fixture. it was also a bittersweet night for city rivals, celtic. the school helped them progress, 4—1 away. but the victory and european progression has been overshadowed by this. stewards and police clashing with celtic fans who had earlier set off a number of players. today, the celtic manager wouldn't be drawn on what happened. i have no comment on that. i wasn't aware of it. the club if there is anything to deal with, the club will deal
with it the best they can. the club believed locals infiltrated their section of the ground and would only see legia warsaw will be in trouble also for their fan's use of layers inside ibrox last night. for their fan's use of flares inside ibrox last night. but if the sectarian fog on the south side of glasgow can't be lifted, it's rangers who have it all to lose. romelu lukaku has hit back at criticism from gary neville, by saying the pundit should "never say i am unprofessional". the belgium striker was also called "overweight" by the former manchester united defender on twitter. lukaku left the old trafford club this summer to join serie a side inter milan for 7h million pounds on a five—year deal.
don't try to question my professionalism. i live for this game. i do not drink, i do not smoke, i'm at home on the time. i try to do everything to improve my game but last year wasjust a bad year and it can happen in football. but you just have to move on so, i'm not going to sit here and try to attack in the public eye. we are both grown men and i don't need to react in a negative way. he is a pundit, he gets paid to say certain kinds of stuff, i'm paid to play football. and ijust want to do my bestjob. ten—man fulham held cardiff city to a one all draw in tonight's game in the championship. it was cardiff who took the lead in the first half, josh murphy with an angled finish beyond the reach of marcus bettinelli, but fulham were level within minutes, alexandar mitrovic tapping in an ivan cavaliero cross. that's his fifth goal of the campaign. fulham were reduced to ten—men
in the second half after harry artur received a second yellow card for simulation. that's how it finished, with fulham moving up to fourth while cardiffjump to tenth. bury are not taking their expulsion from the english football league lying down. they now say they're considering legal action against the efl. members of the club's executive met earlier today to discuss their options, having earlier sent the efl a letter, questioning its handling of the affair. our sports editor dan roan, has spoken exclusively to bury‘s lawyer chris farnell. earlier today, senior members of bury senior and executive coaching team met at these offices behind me in cheshire. the offices of chris farnell who has been helping them try and secure a last—gasp rescue deal with a number of bidders the weekend, that early on this week. they all came to late because if it believed on tuesday night decided to expel bury from the football league and yesterday they refused to reconsider that decision. so earlier i spoke to chris, and asked him what their
next steps might be? we had a meeting this morning and we will try and take stock of the position. it would appear that bury have been expelled which is a huge upset to all of the fans. the club and the local community. and it is a community club. i think what we will have to try and do a sea where bury fits now i think what we will have to try and do a see where bury fits now within the pediment of football and to see whether they can come back in division two as opposed to being sent right down the leagues. and if you don't have any response or you don't get the response that you require, what options are open to you and the terms of legal action or forcing their hand? all actions are opened and it is never nice if you have to try and force somebody‘s hand, but all options remain on the table. what this amounts to of course as a last—ditch attempt by those who still work for bury football club, to try and force the football league to reconsider,
through political pressure. it may well be that they go down the legal route. as well and it is important to stress the supporters trust, forever bury have also said that that is something they may well consider but this is a desperately sad week for notjust bury but also league football generally. serving as a warning, a wake—up call for club finances. even at a time of extraordinary wealth at the top of the sport, and it has highlighted and shone a light on the fact there is growing concern over whether a not clubs are stretching themselves concern over whether or not clubs are stretching themselves beyond their limits and whether they now need to be some kind of governance reform by the football league and perhaps the fa to instill more discipline when it comes to the running of these clubs. vasiliy lomachenko aims to add a third belt to his collection of world lightweight titles. the ukrainian, who is widely regarded as the best pound—for—pound fighter in the world, takes on britain's luke campbell in london tomorrow for the vacant wbc belt.
