Keane on the mark for Galaxy in Chivas win

ROBBIE KEANE continued his good scoring form with his fifth goal in four games as the LA Galaxy beat Chivas 3-1.

Keane, who was left out of Giovanni Trapattoni's squad for the August 15 friendly with Serbia, chose to focus more on his team's performance than his goalscoring feats.

"It's always nice to score goals as a striker. You're judged on scoring goals but the most important thing is getting the win," he said.

"The last few games that (falling behind) has been our downfall we've been chasing too many games, it was important that we got the first goal and we did that.

"We're linking up well, we're creating chances for each other. I think in the last six or seven games since the European Championships it's been better, I think before that we weren't playing well or creating chances. It's changed now and long may it continue."



'Newco' Gers resume talks

Rangers newco will continue talks with the football authorities today as their bid to gain membership of the Scottish Football Association remains in abeyance.

There are two obstacles in the way of Charles Green's club signing the agreement with the SFA, which has as a condition the acceptance of a 12-month transfer ban originally handed out to Rangers oldco for bringing the game into disrepute - media rights and the possible stripping of trophies from Ibrox.

Scottish Football League chief executive David Longmuir said that he will assess any offer from the Scottish Premier League for the rights to Rangers games in the Irn-Bru Third Division next season. It is believed broadcasters are not keen to sign up to an SPL deal without having access to the Govan club's games.
