Rotherham boss ready to don sombrero at Leeds

It is usually players who are accused of being on the beach at this time of the season, but Rotherham manager Steve Evans has said he will turn up to his side's final game at Leeds dressed in shorts, T-shirt and a sombrero if the fans want him to.

The Millers defied a three-point deduction by the Football League to book their Sky Bet Championship survival by beating Reading 2-1 at New York Stadium on Tuesday night.

The result relegates Wigan and Millwall and means Evans can take his side to Elland Road for a Yorkshire derby with no pressure on.

The Scot, who goaded Millwall striker Lee Gregory if the aftermath of Tuesday's victory by telling him to "enjoy League One", joked before the game that if his side had achieved safety by the time they travelled to West Yorkshire he would wear his beach attire.

And speaking on Sky Sports News, Evans said he would go through with the promise if the viewers wanted it to happen.

"If you get enough tweets to the studio demanding to see me in shorts, T-shirt, sombrero and flip-flops, I'll be there in them on Saturday," Evans said. "But it has to be a response to leave me no option.

"I have got a nice pair of sunglasses I can wear.

"I'll happily have my shorts on and I'll see if I can buy a sombrero somewhere, it won't look so good!"


Wesley Sneijder apologises to Leeds fans over knife tweet

Galatasaray's Wesley Sneijder has apologised to Leeds' fans after promoting a club-branded knife set that he is endorsing.

Leeds will today mark 15 years since the deaths of supporters Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight, who were stabbed by a Turkish man ahead of their side's UEFA Cup clash with Galatasaray in April 2000.

A minute's silence will precede Leeds' Sky Bet Championship fixture with Blackburn, but United fans were enraged on Saturday morning when Holland international Sneijder tweeted a picture of a Gala-branded knife set which carried his image, saying the item was now "finally" available for sale.

His Tweet was met with an angry response from Leeds fans and was soon deleted, and Sneijder wrote to one supporter apologising, saying: "@Leedsu1Ross Very sorry. I didn't know this and deleted our promotion for the merchandise kitchen item. #Respect."

Ali Umit Demur was jailed for 15 years for the deaths of Loftus and Speight, while four other men were jailed for their part in the attack.
