SOCCER

James McClean has apologised to the broader Stoke supporter base for the comments he made on social media last weekend.

The Republic of Ireland winger described a section of fans that had been abusing him as "uneducated cavemen" in an Instagram post.

McClean was responding to a small number of Stoke supporters whom he claims were abusing him for his religious beliefs and upbringing.

The 30-year old says he apologises to the "vast majority" of Stoke fans, who may disagree with his decision not to wear a poppy, but are decent and respectful.

=====

Liverpool's owners have issued a denial that they are looking to sell the club.

A report in the New York Post claimed that Fenway Sports Group would listen to offers in excess of 2-billion dollars for the Premier League outfit.

It was claimed John W Henry and F-S-G were engaging in a "passive sales process".

But a club spokesperson has called the report "unfounded speculation", adding that Liverpool is not for sale.

F-S-G bought the club in 2010, succeeding unpopular owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

RUGBY

The Irish side have had their Captain's Run at the Aviva ahead of tomorrow's test with Argentina.

Rory Best led the side this morning, ahead of his first international since the Grand Slam-sealing win over England on St. Patrick's Day.

GOLF

A second round 69 brings Shane Lowry into contention at the halfway mark of the Nedbank Challenge.

The Clara man has a share of fourth on 4-under par

Lowry and co are still five shots adrift of Sergio Garcia, who leads on 9-under following a round of 71.

Rory McIlroy is 1-under following a 71 of his own.

Padraig Harrington's 73 sees him drop to 2-over.

While Paul Dunne has gained one shot today, with a 71 leaving him on 5-over.

 

BOXING

The Irish Athletic Boxing Association have expressed their concern at the sport's future Olympic status.

They've revealed that they voted for unsuccessful candidate Serik Konakbayev in the AIBA Presidential election last week.

The Kazak lost to Gafur Rakhimov, who picked up 86 of the 134 votes cast.

The International Olympic Committee have previously stated that boxing's continued Olympic status would be in jeopardy due to Rakhimov's connections to organised crime in his native Uzbekistan.

Over the years, boxing has accounted for 16 of the 31 medals won by Ireland at summer Olympics.

 

RACING

There's an eight-race card under the lights at Dundalk this evening.

The first went to post at 5.30.
