    The mum at the centre of the Preston North End shirt row claims she has reported the incident - and subsequent social media abuse - to the police.

  • 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. Injury to Sturridge, which ruled him out of the first five months and last six weeks of the campaign, meant Sterling was pressed into service as Liverpool's main striker.

  • Analysis - May's market tremors could reflect fear of 'groupthink'

    For anyone expecting interest rates to be stuck near zero for years to come, the past month has been uncomfortable. The so-called "new normal" or "secular stagnation" theses that posit years of paltry world growth, lingering economic slack and downward pressure on prices and interest rates have fast become consensus thinking among top investors, financial and academic economists. This month's jolt higher in long-term borrowing rates around the world reflects some of those doubts, as much as angst about overstretch in the bond market combined with ebbing fears of chronic deflation, rebounding commodities and the euro zone's return to growth in the first quarter.
