All kinds of important news is breaking out of England today.
John Terry has been found not guilty of violating racism laws. This has been a big talker all week in the UK.
News also just came today that famed Glasgow club Rangers, as feared, will indeed begin in Scottish soccer’s lowest tiers. Officials of the financially re-organized club had submitted a plan to join Scotland’s second tier, an arrangement that would have facilitated a faster climb back into the lucrative Scottish Premier League.
We keep closely following the story of Rangers’ painful unraveling because it significantly affects the careers of three U.S. internationals, captain Carlos Bocanegra and midfielders Maurice Edu and Alejandro Bedoya.
Today’s decision further diminishes any remaining chances the trio, especially Edu and Bocanegra, would remain with the club.
And finally, there’s news / speculation that U.S. international Clint Dempsey and Liverpool’s Andy Carroll would somehow be involved in a swap between the Premiership clubs. Dempsey wants a move to a larger club and Liverpool has reportedly submitted a bid.
