    The monies related to fees for staging the Sri Lanka Test later that month.

    Burnley record signing Jeff Hendrick says he wants to become a regular goalscorer after finding the net in Monday's 2-0 win over Watford.

    The 24-year-old Republic of Ireland midfielder joined the Clarets from Derby for £10.5m this summer.

    "I said in the team room before the match to Stephen Ward that I'd love to get a goal and it felt great to do it," he told Press Association Sport. 

    "It's what I want to start doing now, scoring a few more goals from midfield, and it's going in the right direction. 

    "I'm making a conscious effort to get forward a bit more, saying to myself 'I need to score more' and thankfully I've got two now this month. Hopefully I can carry on getting more."

    The only way for England manager Sam Allardyce to keep his job is to apologise, give up any outside commercial interests and name those still involved in third-party ownership of players, says former Football Association executive Julian Eccles.

    Soccerex has turned into a bit of a wild goose chase in central Manchester today.

    Former FA chief executive David Davies is one of the main moderators, former Bolton striker Kevin Davies has been here. Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn - whose manager Eddie Howe would be a major contender for the England job if Sam Allardyce did get sacked - was speaking.

    All of them are interested to know what is happening with England manager Sam Allardyce - but none of them wanted to speak about him.

  12. Gordon to start against Man City

    Champions League Group C, Celtic v Man City (Weds, 19:45 BST)

    Craig Gordon will start for Celtic against Manchester City in their Champions League Group C match in Glasgow on Wednesday.

    The Scotland goalkeeper had lost his place in recent weeks to summer signing Dorus de Vries.

    But he replaced the Dutchman at half-time during Saturday's 6-1 thrashing of Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership.

    And manager Brendan Rodgers told the media that Gordon would be back in the starting line-up against City.

    That was despite De Vries, who had suffered a chest injury, being back in training on Tuesday.

    "We have the possibility of winning four in a row, which would be amazing and first time in European Ryder Cup history.

    "It's a unique experience - I think that's why we fight so hard to get into the team."

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is looking forward to renewing acquaintances with his former Liverpool player Raheem Sterling in the Champions League. 

    Sterling is likely to start for Manchester City at Celtic Park tomorrow night, and Rodgers says he has enjoyed watching the player's career develop since giving him his debut when he was 17.

    "I've been so proud to watch him," Rodgers said. "He's a great boy to work with and it's been great to see him grow from 17 years old as a player and as a person. He's really shown that with focus, he's a top-class player. He was brilliant for me. I'm looking forward to seeing him, but hopefully he doesn't play that well."

    Rodgers was also asked about a newspaper investigation into England manager Sam Allardyce, and was critical of the reporters' approach. "What a tactic that is," he said. "He's just going into the job. It's embarrassing for part of the [media] profession. I've nothing to say or add to it."
