Brendan Rodgers wants Hendry out of Celtic

first_imgCeltic manager Brendan Rodgers has cleared the air regarding the future of Jack Hendry at the club, after revealing he wants the defender to go out on loan.Hendry joined Celtic from Dundee United for £1.5million last January but has struggled to impress.A string of mistakes, due to his inability to pass the football properly has seen him fall largely out-of-favour at Celtic this season.After seeing his game time reduced drastically over the last few months, Rodgers has revealed his plans for Hendry. Speaking to the BBC earlier today, the former Liverpool manager stated the following:Leicester City, Manchester UnitedMatch Preview: Manchester United vs Leicester City Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Old Trafford is the venue for the Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Leicester City, which kicks off at 16:00 (CET) on Saturday.“He’s played really well in games and played in other games when there’s been pressure, so he’s had to deal with all of that.”“He’s at that age when he needs to be playing for the continuation of his development.”“The next best thing for him over this six-month period is to get games at the highest level he can in a good environment.”last_img read more

Benitez discusses details of meeting with Ashley

first_imgNewcastle United manager Rafael Benitez insists nothing has changed despite having a meeting with club owner Mike Ashley.Ashley met the former Real Madrid manager at St. James Park following last weekend’s 3-0 home win against Cardiff City.Benitez, who has refused to talk about potential addictions during this transfer window since admitting he was concerned after the Magpies loss to Liverpool last month, wouldn’t reveal much about his meeting with Ashley, who has been pushing the manager to sign a new contract for the past 12 months.However, the 58-year-old, who is expected to leave the club in the summer when his contract expires if the club refuse to invest in the squad, says the situation has not changed.Asked if he was happier after speaking to Ashley, Benitez said: “I’m exactly the same.”“I don’t need to talk about what we were talking about, because it was a private conversation.”“But, more or less, we’re in the same situation. We have to wait.”Steve Bruce: “Hopefully that’ll shut a few people up for a little bit” Stuart Heath – August 25, 2019 Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has expressed his delight at his side’s shock 1-0 away victory to Tottenham HotspursTyne-side boss Steve Bruce praised his staff…Asked by the Gazette if he was still worried, Benitez said:“We are where we are, so we will see.”Ashley, who put Newcastle up for sale 18 months ago, congratulated Benitez and the players on the Cardiff win.The result lifted the club out of the Premier League’s relegation zone.“We had a good conversation,” said Benitez.”“We were talking about Cardiff, the three points and everything. It’s fine, but still we are where we are.”last_img read more

Delayed legacy of invasive species

first_img Governments everywhere have begun to realize the undesirable effects of introducing non-native species, but many of the species causing problems today were introduced many decades ago. To study the problem the researchers, from a range of agencies and universities in Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, and elsewhere, looked at data on over 3,300 invasive species in 28 European countries. The species were representatives of 10 taxonomic groups and included mammals, amphibians, birds, reptiles, fish, plants, insects, and fungi, and included species such as Canadian Geese, American Ragweed, and Japanese Deer.Individual countries in Europe have not seen the same rate of development and population growth in the last century, and the differences allowed the researchers to determine if the lag times between introduction of species and their establishment were related to socioeconomic factors. What they found was that the current numbers of alien species now established in the wild are more closely related to socioeconomic indicators such as population density, per capita gross domestic product (GDP) and level of exports of the year 1900 than to those of 2000. The researchers also found it could take decades before it became clear which species would become disruptive. The association with 1900 socioeconomic indicators was less prominent in birds, reptiles and insects that are able to disperse and colonize new areas more rapidly, but for the majority of groups the results suggested a “considerable historical legacy.”The authors speculate that the level of socioeconomic activity in a country could affect the success of an alien species through deliberate introduction efforts, but more importantly through expansions of roads and human population centers, and the conversion of natural habitats into agricultural land, which has already been shown to foster the spread and naturalization of alien species. Per capita GDP may correlate with rates of introduction.The results suggest that the effects on invasive species of the current high levels of socioeconomic activity will not be completely felt for several decades. The researchers described the delay as an “invasion debt” and said that even with existing trade and biosecurity regulations, “the seeds of future invasion problems have already been sown.” They recommended introduced species that were currently not causing problems but had been seen to be invasive elsewhere should be more strictly controlled.The scientists warned further introductions of alien species could have greater impacts on biodiversity and the economy than previously thought. They also said the threat from invasive species is among the major causes of biodiversity loss, along with habitat fragmentation and destruction. The problems are estimated to be costing $16 billion a year in Europe.The paper is published online in the US Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). (PhysOrg.com) — A team of researchers in Europe has urged governments to introduce tougher controls of all international trade that could result in the introduction of non-native species. They say the full impact of alien species may not be evident for decades because they may co-exist with native species for a long time before becoming invasive.
