Doyle blasts English FA's Wolves fine

KEVIN Doyle has criticised the English Premier League for fining his club over fielding a weakened team for their league game with Manchester United.

It was announced yesterday that Wolves were hit with a suspended £25,000 fine in relation to their league game at Old Trafford in December, when boss Mick McCarthy made ten changes for a game which Wolves lost 3-0, but Doyle reckons the fine was unfair.

"I'm surprised at the decision," said Doyle. "They will have to end up fining a lot of teams over the next few years if they're going to go about it that way. Chelsea and Manchester United change teams massively for the FA Cup and League Cup when they have played in the Champions League, so why is it any different for us?"

Foster's joy as Gers ace signs

DUNDALK boss Ian Foster is delighted with the signing of midfielder Tom Miller from SPL side Rangers on a season-long deal.

"He's just one of those players you have on your radar and he was highly thought of. He just had a couple of bad injuries, but he's over them now," said Foster.

"He's not an injury-prone player - it was two tackles that caused the injuries. I saw a little bit of him here and there, I've always been impressed, and I'd like to thank the people at Glasgow Rangers for allowing him to come over and letting him join our football club.

"It was initially going to be a loan deal but we've managed to talk Rangers into letting him out and getting him until November, which we're delighted about. Rangers are going to monitor his progress, because they believe he is a good footballer as well. But I'm delighted to get him on board."
