    Newcastle United face Benfica in the Europa League quarter-final first leg on Thursday night and Alan Pardew has been seeking advice from Celtic boss Neil Lennon. Celtic played Benfica in the UEFA Champions League group phase and Newcastle manager Pardew is keen to be as prepared as possible.
    We have good contacts regarding this team. I know this city quite well and I have some contacts here who know Benfica well. There is also Neil Lennon who we have been in contact with. I think it is important to get as much information as you can - as I'm sure Benfica have done with us.

    Here's part of Rangers' statement after the Ibrox club confirmed that Francisco Sandaza had been sacked following an investigation into a hoax phone call.
    Rangers have decided to terminate its contract with Francisco Sandaza. The player has been advised of the situation. Francisco spoke at length to someone posing as an agent and engaged in a conversation which the club believes to be a material breach of his contract of employment. The player was suspended but, after careful consideration and a hearing with Francisco and his representatives, the club, and our advisors, believe that dismissal is the appropriate course of action.

    Ferdy Murphy's Poker De Sivola has been scratched from the John Smith's Grand National. Murphy took the decision after getting the results of a scope on Wednesday.
    We had him scoped earlier today and the results have just come back. It's not good news unfortunately, he's just not quite right. There's nothing we can do about it but you can't run them if they're not right.
