Men's Andrej Nestrasil Premier Black Adidas Jersey: NHL Carolina Hurricanes #15 1917-2017 100th Anniversary

Lionel Messi produced yet another masterclass as Barcelona marked the end of Luis Enrique’s Camp Nou reign by lifting the Copa del Rey. Barcelona became Gary Carter Womens Jersey the first team since the early 1950s to lift the cup three seasons running as Messi masterminded a 3-1 victory at the final game to be staged at Atlético Madrid’s Vicente Calderón home. Messi set Barcelona on their way with his 54th goal of the season and Neymar and Paco Alcácer were also on target in the first half, with Theo Hernández offering Alavés brief hope with a wonderful free-kick. From Belvedere to Barcelona, Bulgaria and beyond: the life of a football nomad Read more Alavés had waited 96 years to reach a Copa del Rey final, and they did not disgrace themselves at the end of a season in which they finished ninth in La Liga after winning promotion. But, as is so often the case, they had no answer to the brilliance of Messi and, after a season in which Barcelona have fallen short of their high standards, the favourites ended with a trophy. A ninth piece of silverware was a fitting end to Enrique’s three-year spell in charge of Barcelona. Messi sounded his intent with a brilliant diagonal pass that almost set up Jordi Alba for a sixth-minute opener. But Barcelona’s momentum was slowed by a nasty ninth-minute clash of heads between Javier Mascherano and Alavés’s on-loan midfielder Marcos Llorente, which led to the former leaving the field on a stretcher. With talk that the Argentina defender is set to leave Barcelona this summer after seven years at the club, it would represent a sad end to Mascherano’s trophy-filled http://www.officialmetsproshop.com/Jacob_Degrom_Jerseytime in Catalonia if that was the case. Barcelona had a hold on possession, but chances were limited as Alavés stifled the midfield and denied Messi space around the fringes of the penalty area. And Alaves nearly struck against the run of play when Ibai Gómez intercepted Gerard Piqué’s pass out of defence. Gómez’s shot squirmed under the body of Jasper Cillessen and, when it hit the back of the Barcelona goalkeeper on the way out, it rolled agonisingly along the line.

Barcelona made the most of their good fortune to take the lead three minutes later on the half-hour mark. Messi played a clever one-two with Neymar before curling the ball into the corner of the net from 18 yards. The Alavés miracle: ‘We know what lies behind it: the work, sacrifice and effort’ Read more But Alavés equalised within three minutes as Hernández, on loan from Atlético and on familiar turf, struck a sensational 25-yard free-kick past Cillessen. Messi and Ivan Rakitic went http://www.officialkingsteamstore.com/Jake_Muzzin_Jersey close to restoring Barcelona’s lead, but Alaves’s hopes of reaching the break level were ruined in a cruel three-minute spell. A sweeping team move released the substitute André Gomes and his cross was turned home by Neymar, scoring for the third successive Copa del Rey final despite looking in an offside position. Worse was to come for Alavés in the third minute of stoppage time as Messi dribbled his way past several defenders before allowing Alcácer to finish neatly. The Alavés goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco prevented Alcácer from claiming a second soon after the restart, and the Basque side refused to surrender in a competitive contest. Gomes blocked Ruben Sobrino’s goalbound shot and Cillessen stuck out a foot to stop Rodrigo Ely’s stabbed attempt embarrassing him at the near post. But Barcelona saw the game out Jeff Carter Womens Jersey to claim a third straight Copa del Rey and some tangible reward after Real Madrid’s La Liga triumph
Nuno Espírito Santo will become Wolves’ new manager after Paul Lambert’s exit. The 43-year-old former Porto manager is expected to be appointed http://www.ramsofficialsonline.com/Mo_Alexander_Jersey_Cheapthe club’s fourth boss in 10 months in the next 48 hours. Lambert left on Monday, just six months after joining, following a club review of football operations which took place at the end of the season. The Scot had only joined in November but was unhappy at Wolves’ stance on new signings with super agent Jorge Mendes, a close associate of owners Fosun, having a large say in deals. Nuno is in line to replace him after leaving Porto earlier this month halfway through a two-year deal. The Portuguese giants finished second in the Primeira Liga, six points behind Benfica, and finished trophyless for a fourth consecutive season. Nuno was also in charge of Valencia between and guided them to fourth in La Liga in his only full season in charge. He will join after Lambert became the third head coach to leave, following Kenny Jackett and Walter Zenga, since owners Fosun bought the club last July. Championship: fans from all 24 clubs review their season Read more First-team coaches Stuart Taylor and Rob Edwards, and head of sport science Tony Daley, have Erin Henderson Authentic Jersey also left. A club statement read: “Wolves and Paul Lambert have agreed to part company following a football review which took place at the end of the season. “The club would like to place on record its thanks to Paul for his dedication and professionalism during his time at the club, which included some memorable victories, and wish him all the best in his future career. “In addition, first-team coaches Stuart Taylor and Rob Edwards, and head of sport science Tony Daley, will also be leaving Wolves with immediate effect. “As part of the coaching restructure, the club are currently in discussions with Pat Mountain regarding the possibility of him taking up a role within the academy. “Tony (Daley) and Rob (Edwards) have given many years of loyal and committed service to Wolves, and the club would like to thank them for their substantial contributions over a long period of time. “Along with Paul, all three departing members of the backroom staff leave with the club’s best wishes.” Wolves finished 15th in the http://www.broncosfootballprosshop.com/Phil_Taylor_Jersey_CheapSky Bet Championship this seasonLuciano Spalletti has stepped down from his position as Roma manager, two days after leading his side to a second-place finish in Serie A. Under the 58-year-old’s guidance in the past season, Roma won more Serie A points and scored more goals than any side in the club’s history, but ultimately fell short of Juventus by four points in the final standings. Spalletti has been linked with the manager’s role at Internazionale, who have yet to appoint a permanent replacement for Stefano Pioli. Francesco Totti brings down curtain on ‘something beautiful’ at Roma Read more “We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Luciano Spalletti for all of his hard work and the significant contribution he has made to the club since his return,” said the Roma president, James Pallotta, in a statement on the club’s website. “This club is on a constant path of growth and that will continue with the appointment of a new coach who shares our values and philosophy and who will continue to help us take AS Roma forward.” The announcement comes two days after Francesco Totti’s final game for the club after 25 years.

David Wagner, called his players legends after they defeated Reading in a penalty shootout to gain promotion to the Premier League. The teams were deadlocked at 0-0 after a tense Championship play-off final before Christopher Schindler scored the decisive spot-kick for the club, who were last in England’s top flight in 1972. That secured an extraordinary rise for a club with one of the lowest budgets in this season’s Championship who had finished 19th last season. “I said to the players before the [play-off] semi-finals: ‘You are heroes, you finished fifth in the league, but from hero to zero in football is sometimes only a week and now you have the opportunity to become legends.’ Now they are legends for sure. Everybody will remember what this group of players have done with a small budget. And they deserve http://www.officialmarinershop.com/Luis_Sardinas_Jersey it. This football club has written an unbelievable story.” Huddersfield reach Premier League after penalty shoot-out win over Reading Read more The manager revealed that he had not chosen before kick-off who would take the penalties in the event of a shootout and was taken aback when Schindler stepped up. The centre-back had not volunteered during Huddersfield’s victory against Sheffield Wednesday in the semi-final, which also came via a shootout.

“I said to the players [after extra-time]: ‘The easiest thing in football is to put the ball from 12 yards into the net. Now after 10 months you have the opportunity to go to the Premier League and all you have to do is put the ball in the net from 12 yards. Take this easy challenge and do it. Everybody who wants to do so raise their hands.’ They said: ‘OK, give me this opportunity.’ But I was pretty surprised when Schindi said: ‘I’d like to take the fifth one.’ He was totally confident so I said OK.” Promotion has the potential to transform the Yorkshire club whose budget this season was “much less than [the reported] £12m”, according to Wagner. Promotion to the Premier League is worth at least £170m. “I need to take a few weeks to get my head around it,” Wagner Tony Gwynn Womens Jersey said. “I will have a lot of phone calls to make.” Advertisement Wagner’s feat this season is sure to arouse interest from more wealthy clubs who may wish to tempt him away from Huddersfield. The German had no wish to think about that straight after this historic triumph. “I haven’t thought about my personal standing or [that of] individual players,” he said. “All that’s in my head is celebration. My only focus was this final, so I was not involved in planning [celebrations] but there are a lot of smart, intelligent and very happy people in Huddersfield who have been thinking about that – and after 45 years it is sure to be one of the better celebrations.” The man who hired Wagner in November 2015, Huddersfield’s chairman, Dean Hoyle, is sure to relish Frank Robinson Womens Jersey those celebrations. “I’m so emotional,” he said after the final whistle at Wembley. “I’ve been supporting this club since 1969. To be a Premier League team now is a dream come true. It’s huge what it means for Huddersfield, we’re on the big stage. It proves you don’t have to blow your brains to get promoted. We’ve done it the right way.” Hoyle, like Wagner, spared a thought for the beaten opponents. “Reading have lost on penalties and that’s really cruel. The prize is so big and I feel for them.”

Reading’s manager, Jaap Stam, said his players must use the pain of defeat to drive them towards happier times. “It’s difficult to take but it needs to be difficult,” he said. “You can’t say: ‘Tomorrow I’m going to go out and eat some Chinese with my girlfriend.’ You need to feel that experience and learn from it if you want to get there again.” Asked about the possibility of him being lured away from Reading on the back of this season’s exploits, Stam said: “I still have a contract at Reading and there is nothing there that’s going to take me away. Of course you want to work at the highest level. I played there myself but it doesn’t mean [because] of what we achieved this season I need to go away. I just http://www.authenticflyerstore.com/authentic-26-brian-propp-jersey.html need to see what happens in the summer
Weird Uncle Fiver turned up today in an extremely dishevelled state, reader, with Bryan Bickell Jersey a maniacal grin, an otherworldly body odour and an inability to stop babbling incoherently. But there was something different about him. Something close to credibility. It was as if the words streaming out of his mouth like cut-price beer from a fallen Tin were based on actual events and had nothing at all to do with magic fungus. Yet, when his words were pooled, they made no sense. Wacky stuff about Per Mertesacker slipping baby reins on to Diego Costa, Victor Moses tripping over an invisible sleeping dog, and Huddersfield Town reaching the Premier League! That’s the last time we let Weird Uncle Fiver spend a bank holiday weekend at Wembley, reader! The man’s done lost his noggin! But the barmy thing is he’s not the only one. All of today’s media carry similar tales. So much for the fight against fake news! Many organs have gone so far as to publish blatantly Photoshopped images of Huddersfield’s players and staff holding aloft “We Are Premier League” banners – and some people seem convinced they are real, even though captain Jean-Luc Picard is smack bang in the middle of most of them, for goodness sake. David Wagner’s little dogs show team spirit to take Huddersfield Town up Read more Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that Huddersfield have not been in England’s top flight since 1972 and there is about as much chance of them ever playing in the Premier League as there is of T-Rex recording another http://www.officialhurricanesproshop.com/Cam_Ward_Jersey No1, Richard Nixon serving another term in the White House or the Pope’s Newc O’Rangers winning a European trophy. These are impossibilities and only a fool would say otherwise. Or a genius. Such as David Wagner. Now there’s a manager who, it turns out, can make hallucinations come true. Dang, the club that truly launched the managerial careers of Herbert Chapman and Bill Shankly has gone and done it again! So after a brilliantly improbable transformation and a play-off victory over Reading that really did happen, Huddersfield will appear in next season’s Premier League. Wagner will pit his wits against his old chum Jürgen Klopp as well as Pep Guardiola, the Special One, several Watford managers and, most sensationally of all, Arsène Wenger. It’s true! Following Chelsea’s no-show in the FA Cup final and Arsenal’s surprisingly accomplished performance, a board meeting was held at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday and the early indications are that Wenger has Adebayored another two-year deal! So next season it’ll be back to Premier Nick Holden Jersey League life again but, thanks to Huddersfield, not as we know itBorussia Dortmund ended a run of three successive German Cup final defeats with a 2-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in Berlin. The striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who reportedly handed in a transfer request this week, scored his 40th goal of the season from the penalty spot for Dortmund midway through the second half to clinch the club’s fourth DFB-Pokal title and first in five years. Christian Pulisic: 'It was scary – you’re not thinking about football that night or the next day' Read more Aubameyang also hit the crossbar late on as Dortmund put the defeats to Bayern Munich (twice) and Wolfsburg behind them in a record fourth consecutive final appearance. Dortmund took the lead after eight minutes when Ousmane Dembélé picked up where he had http://www.rangersteamonline.com/Oscar_Lindberg_Jerseyleft off with his semi-final winner against Bayern. The midfielder reached double figures for the season with a left-footed shot from a tight angle. However, they could not press home their advantage and on the half-hour Frankfurt, appearing in their first cup final for 11 years, equalised through Ante Rebic. Dortmund replaced Marco Reus and Marcel Schmelzer with Gonzalo Castro and Christian Pulisic at half-time and it was the latter who won the decisive penalty after he was fouled by Lukas Hradecky, allowing Aubameyang to score his 40th in 46 matches this season
Liverpool are to sign Dominic Solanke from Chelsea having beaten several Premier Matt Bosher Authentic Jersey League and European clubs to a deal for the promising young striker. The 19-year-old has agreed terms with the Anfield club after refusing to sign a contract extension at Stamford Bridge amid concern over a lack of first-team opportunities. Solanke’s current deal expires this summer but, as he is younger than 24, Liverpool will have to pay Chelsea a compensation fee to be decided by a tribunal. The fee is expected to be in the region of £2m-£3m. Chelsea’s Nathan Aké: ‘At my age now, you want to play a little bit more’ Read more “Liverpool FC have agreed personal terms with Dominic Solanke to sign the England youth international this summer,” read a statement on the club’s official website. “The 19-year-old striker will complete the transfer to the Reds on July 1, 2017, upon the expiry of his contract with his current club, Chelsea.” Solanke has an impressive goalscoring record for Chelsea’s youth teams and represented http://www.officialsfalconsauthenticshop.com/Matt_Bryant_Jersey_Cheap England up to under-21 level. He is part of Paul Simpson’s squad for the Under-20 World Cup in South Korea and spent the 2015-16 season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, where he scored seven goals in 25 appearances. The striker’s stand-off with Chelsea over a new contract had alerted an array of clubs to his availability and several Premier League teams competed with Liverpool for his signature. Solanke, who will earn less than £20,000 a week at Anfield, also had offers from RB Leipzig in Germany and Celtic, who saw him as a potential replacement for Moussa Dembélé. Jürgen Klopp intends to deploy Solanke in Liverpool’s Under-23 team initially and he looks to develop a group of young talent – featuring the likes of Trent Alexander?Arnold, Ben Woodburn and Harry Wilson – to challenge the first team and feature in cup competitions next season. As Solanke is older than 17 and in line to sign a professional contract with Liverpool, the club’s transfer embargo – which applies to signing academy http://www.footballpanthershop.com/Sam_Mills_Jersey_Cheap players from other English league clubs for two years – does not apply. Advertisement Another player on his way out of Chelsea is the goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, who has agreed a move to Bournemouth believed to be in the region of £15m. He will officially join the south-coast club on 1 July. “AFC Bournemouth is an exciting, ambitious club which has everything in place for a very bright future,” Begovic said. “Being part of a title-winning team at Chelsea was amazing but I felt now was the right time to move on because I want to be playing regular football. “I am coming into an important part of my career and I want to show people what I am capable of. When I spoke to Eddie Howe I knew Bournemouth was the right club for me and I want to bring my experience to the squad. I’m really excited to be part of the journey here and hope I can help take the Authentic Scott Simonson Youth Jersey club to another level.” Bournemouth’s current No1 Artur Boruc, 37, has a deal until summer 2018 after triggering an appearance clause in his contrac

Rutherford said: “After such a tragic and heinous event, I think it’s important that everybody comes together and shows it’s not going to stop people leading a normal life. “That seems to be the overriding sense from everybody here. I think it’s wonderful that it’s still going ahead and I hope it will be a lovely tribute to those who lost their lives and those injured in the attack. “I think it will be amazing to see the people come out and get behind the event, not just for the sport but to show they’re not going to let the terrorists win.” Meanwhile, the Great Manchester Run will also take place on Sunday.

At the end of a predictably pedestrian close-season match in the harbour city, it was the visitors who most fulfilled their pre-match aspirations in a comfortable 3-0 win, much to the delight of the heavily pro-Liverpool crowd, after goals by Daniel Sturridge, Alberto Moreno and Roberto Firmino set up the mother of all smash and grabs.

Having secured their place in next season’s Champions League just on Sunday, Jürgen Klopp’s side will return to Liverpool on Thursday evening, having made their mark on Australia once again in just 36 hours – and banked a presumably sizeable cheque for their efforts. “That was the most intense away game I’ve ever had,” said Klopp. “I’ve no idea how the players did it. Obviously they’ve enjoyed it.” When asked what the players’ response was on being told they were expected to travel to the other side of the world at the end of a long, hard campaign, Klopp added: “Because I’m the boss, they were not too critical but I could see in their eyes they would have done different things.” Few in the crowd were here to watch the A-League champions, who had to settle for the role of bridesmaids, two weeks after they were headlining in their grand final win over Melbourne Victory. Make no mistake, this was a night all about Liverpool, from the rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone and the massive club badge in the centre circle before the game to the rousing reception given to veteran call-ups Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher on their substitution moments into the second half.

The Fifa president, Gianni Infantino, has admitted there have been human rights abuses Randy Jones Authentic Jersey of workers involved in the construction of the arena in St Petersburg due to host matches in next year’s World Cup. In a letter to the presidents of four Nordic football associations, which the Guardian has seen, Infantino also acknowledged that some men from North Korea, whose working conditions are “often appalling”, were deployed to work at the Zenit Arena in St Petersburg. The presidents of the Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic FAs wrote to Infantino raising their concerns last week, following in-depth reportage by the Norwegian football magazine Josimar, which highlighted dreadful working conditions at the St Petersburg site. The article alleged that accommodation for the North Korean and other workers was in crowded storage containers outside the stadium, and cited local reports that a North Korean man was found dead in one of the storage http://www.authenticsandiegopadres.com/Rickey-Henderson-Jersey containers, having suffered a heart attack. Blatter’s spirit lives on with Infantino seeing Fifa’s enemies inside and out Read more The conditions of North Korean workers in Russia, China and the Middle East, effectively sent abroad by their country’s totalitarian regime in return for commission, was described as “exploitation” and “slave-like” in a resolution of the United Nations in November. The Josimar report interviewed migrant workers from other countries who said they had worked long hours in dismal conditions at the Zenit Arena and been underpaid, in cash. In his letter to the four FA presidents dated Monday 22 May, Infantino said: “Fifa is aware of and firmly condemns the often appalling labour conditions under which North Korean workers are employed in various countries http://www.authenticbuffalosabres.com/authentic-dominik-hasek-jersey around the world.” He acknowledged that an inspection team for Fifa’s “Decent Work Monitoring System”, set up to address concerns about human rights abuses, did find “strong evidence for the presence of North Korean workers on the construction site in St Petersburg” on a visit in November. “The issues found were subsequently raised with the respective company and with the general contractor,” Infantino wrote. Advertisement A further inspection carried out in March found no more North Korean workers employed at the site, he said. The monitoring system, which Infantino said has since been strengthened, is run jointly by Fifa and the committee in Russia organising the World Cup, whose chairman is Vitaly Mutko, the country’s deputy prime minister. Infantino acknowledged in his letter there had been “incompliances” relating to health and safety – five workers have reportedly died in accidents – timely payment of salaries and accommodation at the site. “As a consequence of the relatively high number of incompliances compared with the other Fifa World Cup stadiums found in St Petersburg and due to the fatal accidents that happened on that construction site, Fifa and the local organising committee have required the general contractor to take immediate steps to rectify the issues identified,” the letter read. In a statement, Fifa said it continues to monitor all World Cup construction in Russia, adding that no further evidence has been found of North Korean workers Adidas Evander Kane Authentic Jersey on any sites. “These activities are part of a broader effort by Fifato systematise and enhance its activities to ensure respect for human rights throughout its operations,” the statement read
Petr Cech has been dropped by Arsène Wenger for the FA Cup final against Chelsea Walt Weiss Authentic Jersey on Saturday and David Ospina will make a surprise start in goal. Cech is devastated by the decision. It was thought that he suffered a slight knock in training but he is now ready to take his place on the bench. Wenger has had to mix and match at the back in the face of selection problems and he will ask Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who is fit again after hamstring trouble, to step in at left wing-back in his 3-4-2-1 formation. Hector Bellerín will continue at right wing-back. The left-back, Kieran Gibbs, has been struggling with a thigh problem. Wenger’s major doubt concerns Shkodran Mustafi, who suffered a concussion in the Premier League win at home to Sunderland, and the centre-half is not expected to be fit for Wembley. Two other centre-backs – Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista – are out through suspension and knee ligament damage respectively, so Wenger is set to turn to Per Mertesacker in the position. Mertesacker returned to action as a substitute in the home win over Everton on Sunday after nearly 13 months out with a knee injury. Mertesacker said he has “never played in a back three”. He added: “When I was young, I started in a back four and that was my position from then on for the last 15 years. Everyone starts from zero with that new system. “Am I able to play for 90 minutes? I cannot tell you. I haven’t played this year. But I have done this for 15 years, so I expect myself to be absolutely http://www.officialathleticshop.com/authentic-17-yonder-alonso-jersey.html ready, no matter what comes. I am going to go for it. I owe it to this team and this club. I want to make sure I will be ready and my mind-set is 120 minutes, plus penalties.” Wenger had suggested on Wednesday that he would start with Cech over Ospina, despite having favoured his back-up goalkeeper on FA Cup runs. Ospina played in all eight of Arsenal’s Champions League ties this season, plus the first three rounds of the FA Cup. Wenger stressed that Cech, his No1, had started in the semi-final win over Manchester City last month. “Will Cech play against Chelsea? It is possible,” Wenger said. “We will see.” Ospina, who is expected to leave the club in the summer, now has his chanceCan the A-League learn anything from the US experience with MLS? Read more Firmino stamped his authority on the game 11 minutes later with a beautifully judged dink over the top of a static Sydney backline and Moreno finished with aplomb, volleying neatly past Danny Vukovic. Sturridge was again at the heart of the action on 39 minutes, crossing for Firmino to get the final touch as Wilkinson floundered while the best Sydney could muster was an effort from David Carney – who started his professional career on Merseyside, on the other side of Stanley Park on Everton’s books http://www.panthersfootballprostore.com/james-bradberry-jersey-for-sale-c-25.html – that cannoned off the woodwork on the stroke of half-time. Gerrard was denied a penalty – and presumably the chance to take it himself – just before half-time, much to the annoyance of the crowd and, as the sides came off, Klopp berated the official. It was difficult to tell whether his anger was genuine or if he was playing up to the crowd. Advertisement The inevitable raft of changes came at the break as both teams used the match to hand out a bit of experience to younger members of their squads, and the flow of the game suffered, to the extent that a Mexican wave and a hail of paper aeroplanes thrown towards the pitch from the bleachers generated the biggest cheers of the second half until Ben Woodburn almost delivered a fourth goal for Liverpool with a mazy solo run and shot. That was to be the last of the meaningful action, but the crowd did not go home disappointed. Nor did Klopp, who indicated afterwards the long journey was a worthwhile exercise, if not for football reasons, but at least to reach out to the club’s global fan base. “We are here to show ourselves, the club, Liverpool FC,” he said. “We’re really thankful Sydney FC gave us the opportunity two weeks after their Jonathan Stewart Womens Jersey season [ended]. We’re really thankful for the support. That’s why we’re here. We could have done other things, we could have been already on holiday but we came here because we wanted to be
As he stands on the verge of history, Brendan Rodgers has urged Sunderland to move for Derek McInnes, the key figure standing between Celtic and that unprecedentedNick Holden Jersey achievement. Should Celtic see off Aberdeen in Saturday’s Scottish Cup final, they would complete an unbeaten domestic season and trophy treble. Intriguingly, Rodgers used his pre-match media duties to speak effusively of McInnes, the Aberdeen manager who features on the list of candidates to replace David Moyes at the Stadium of Light. A historic connection to the Sunderland chief executive, Martin Bain, is pertinent with regards to McInnes, as is a relatively paltry compensation payment in the region of £500,000. Celtic and Callum McGregor outclass Rangers in Scottish Cup semi-final Read more “I saw that [link] during the week and I think he is absolutely perfect for it,” said Rodgers. “It’s a big club that has had a change and now needs someone who can go in there and who can organise, someone who has been at a big club and Derek has been at big clubs. “He has been down in England and had a difficult time so he gets that and he has done a great job with Aberdeen, which is a big job. “He would go in, give them a bit of life, get them organised. He knows the game, he can engage with players, he can motivate players. “The Championship is a http://www.rangersteamonline.com/Oscar_Lindberg_Jersey tough league. I got promoted there with Swansea and it is 46 games of graft and work and commitment. It would be brilliant for him if that is what he wanted to do and certainly a club of that magnitude – it is a big club, Sunderland – and for me he would be perfect.” The difficult time to which Rodgers referred was at Bristol City, who sacked McInnes in January 2013. The former Rangers and West Bromwich Albion midfielder has aspirations to return to England at some stage. However on Friday McInnes played down a switch to the Stadium of Light. “It hasn’t been a distraction,” he said. “I’m protective of my own career. There have been opportunities to move in the past but I have never been in any real rush to leave Aberdeen. Hibs heartache as Darren McGregor own goal puts Aberdeen into Cup final Read more “If we continue to do our jobs well there may be opportunities in the future, but a lot of things would http://www.officialcelticsproshop.com/Walter_Brown_Jersey have to be right for me to consider leaving. I made a bad decision leaving St Johnstone for Bristol City.” The immediate task in hand relates to whether Aberdeen, who have been beaten five times by Celtic this season, including the League Cup final, which they lost 3-0, can prevent Rodgers from becoming the third manager in his club’s history to deliver a treble. “I don’t think so much about that,” said Rodgers. “I’ll think about it after, if it happens. If it does, great. If it doesn’t, it’s OK, I’ve done my best. We’ll go again next year and try to do the same thing. History always judges you as a manager and a player. I just hope in my time here, this season and beyond, I can do my very best. “It has been a brilliant season, no matter what the result is. The whole club is very much going in the same direction.” Rodgers has added the fit-again Moussa Dembélé to his squad, the French striker having recovered from the hamstring injury picked up in the semi-final win over C.J. Watson Youth Jersey Rangers. The likelihood, though, is that the in-form Leigh Griffiths will start in attack
