Rangers in a hurry to replace Mullery.

Queens's Park Rangers chairman Jim Gregory will scour the ranks of football's unemployed to find a successor to Alan Mullery. Following the sudden departure of Mullery, Gregory is unlikely to risk the complications of trying to recruit someone else's manager.
Men such as former Rangers' coach George Graham, now driving Third Division Millwall toward promotion, and West Ham's John Lyall would not be released by their present chairmen without a battle - and Gregory needs a replacement quickly.
Former Arsenal and Tottenham manager Terry Neill has the credentials to take on the task, while others with London connections but no ties at present include Bobby Campbell, John Bond and Gerry Francis.
Neill has resisted offers to bring him back into the game following his dismissal from Arsenal last Christmas, but may now feel his busy sabbatical- marathon running, charity mountain climbing and football analysis on the radio- can be brought to an end.
Unlike Mullery, however, Neill may want a longer-term deal than the one-year arrangement agreed by Mullery when he stepped in for Barcelona-bound Terry Venables last summer.
Former England captain Mullery had just left Crystal Palace when Gregory offered him the chance to rebuild his managerial reputation. He always had the odds stacked against him, with the "feel" of Venables still very strong at the club.
The almost-inevitable end came on Tuesday night after a 2-0 win over Stoke when Gregory agreed with the spectators who had chanted "Mullery must go."
Coach Frank Siblev will take charge of the players until a new manager is appointed, and with a visit by League leaders Everton on Saturday, followed on Wednesday by a Milk Cup second replay against Southampton, Rangers' chairman is likely to make his choice within 48 hours.
Jan Butterworth, Coventry City's centre-half, had X-rays taken on his right foot yesterday after limping out of Tuesday night's match at Liverpool. He was kicked on the instep and the X-ray is to check for a possible fracture. Liverpool won 3-1.
Mervyn Day has made his peace with manager Graham Turner. But the former England Under-23 goalkeeper still wants to leave Aston Villa.
Day was suspended by the club last week after voicing strong views on the manager's decision to drop him to make way for fit-again Nigel Spink.
"After having spoken with Graham Turner at length this afternoon, I have apologised for making public statements which brought his integrity into question," said Day yesterday in an official statement.
London solicitor Michael Cranston has announced his resignation as chairman of Southend. The latest development in the club's continuing crisis.
Lendl leaves it wide open. Mats Wilander's chances of retaining his Australian Open tennis title were immeasurably improved yesterday when three of the top five seeds, Ivan Lendl, Ioakim Nystrom and Pat Cash, were ousted from the championship.
Top seed Lendl, forced by torn stomach muscles and heavy bandaging round his abdomen to serve well below his usual standard, succumbed 6-1, 7-6, 6-4 to ninth-seeded South African Kevin Curren in their held-over, fourth-round match.
The Czechoslovak French Open champion, who was trailing 6-1, 2-1 when play was called off because of rain on Tuesday, said he would not have been able to go to four sets.
"By the end of the third set, I couldn't serve. It (the injury) worried me most when I had to serve," he said.
Third-seeded Nystrom, who was left out of the Swedish Davis Cup team named yesterday for the final against the United States this month, was another fourth-round casualty.
He was removed 7-6, 6-3, 6-7, 7-5 by unseeded American Ben Testerman, who will meet West German teenager Boris Becker in the quarter-final round.
Local hopeful Cash, seeded fifth, failed to upset the seedings in his quarter-final match against South African-born Johan Kriek of the United States, the number four and the main threat to second - seeded Swede Wilander.
Lendle throughout used the end changes to replace his bandages, Curren complained about the extra time taken by his opponent and Grand Prix supervisor Bill Gilmour and tournament referee Peter Bellenger were called on court several times.
Lendl pulled the stomach muscles during a tournament in the US and the injury recurred during the International Challenge tournament in Canberra and again on Tuesday.
A sports medical specialist was yesterday flying from the capital to treat the problem.

Olympic Games.
The Olympic Games have a very long history. They began in 777 BC in Greece and took place every four years for nearly twelve centuries at Olympia. They included many different kinds of sports: running, boxing, wrestling, etc. All the cities in Greece sent their best athletes to Olympia to compete in the Games. For the period of the Games all the wars stopped. So the Olympic Games became the symbol of peace and friendship.
In 394 AD the Games were abolished and were not renewed until many centuries later.
In 1894, a Frenchman, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, addressed all the sports governing bodies and pointed out the significance of sports and its educational value.
Two years later the first modern Olympic Games took place. Of course, the competitions were held in Greece to symbolize the continuation of the centuries-old tradition.
In 1896 the International Olympic Committee was set up. It is the central policy-making body of the Olympic movement. It is formed by the representatives of all countries which take part in the Olympic Games. The International Olympic Committee decides upon the programme of the games, the number of the participants and the city-host for the Games. Over one hundred and fifty countries are represented in the International Olympic Committee now. Besides, each country has its National Olympic Committee.
Summer and Winter Games are held separately. There are always several cities wishing to host the Games. The most suitable is selected by the International Committee. After that the city of the Games starts preparations for the competitions, constructs new sports facilities, stadiums, hotels, press centres. Thousands of athletes, journalists and guests come to the Games, and it takes great efforts to arrange everything. There is always an interesting cultural programme of concerts, exhibitions, festivals, etc., for each Games.
Russia joined the Olympic movement in 1952. Since then it has won a lot of gold, silver, and bronze medals. In 1980 Moscow hosted the Twenty-Second Olympic Games.
The latest Olympic Games were held in Barcelona. Russian sportsmen got medals for their records in many sports events.
