  • Premier League - Keegan: Sterling not ready to lead

    Former Liverpool striker Kevin Keegan believes Brendan Rodgers was misguided in thinking youngster Raheem Sterling could help fill the void left by Luis Suarez. The 20-year-old was expected to maintain the progress made playing alongside the Uruguay international and Daniel Sturridge last season but things did not pan out as either would have wanted.

  • No return to Corrie for Jimi Mistry

    Coronation Street star Jimi Mistry has revealed it had always been the plan for his character to be killed off. Kal Nazir, played by Jimi, was caught up in the fire drama at Victoria Court flats in the ITV soap, where he failed to escape the inferno after waving brand-new fiancee Leanne (Jane Danson) off to safety shortly before a gas canister next to him exploded in the blaze. In the history of Corrie I think it's one of the most dramatic story arcs there's ever been, so to be a part of that was a perfect ending.

  • 2022 World Cup host Qatar stays silent on FIFA probes

    Qatar is keeping quiet about the American and Swiss raids that have rocked FIFA and thrown another unwelcome spotlight on the tiny Gulf nation's hosting of the 2022 World Cup.

The silence stands in sharp contrast to comments by Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose country will host the World Cup four years before Qatar.
