Leeds United chairman Massimo Cellino will be allowed to continue in his role at the Championship club until his appeal against his latest disqualification has been heard.

The Football League has set no date for the completion of Cellino's appeal but said the length of his ban, due to run until June next year, will not be affected if the governing body's decision is upheld.

Cellino lodged his appeal against his disqualification at the end of last month after being suspended by the League for failing its owners' and directors' test following another tax conviction back in his native Italy.

Meanwhile, Liverpool midfielder James Milner is hoping to shake off a hamstring injury in time to face his former club Manchester City next weekend.

The 29-year-old missed the defeat to Crystal Palace and then withdrew from the England squad.

"It shouldn't be too long and hopefully I'll be back for the next game, but we'll have to wait and see," Milner said.
