Jimmy Thelin ‘OUT’ of next Aberdeen FC manager running as boss to stay at Elfsborg

The shortlist of names in the frame to be the next Aberdeen manager is taking shape – but it looks as if Jimmy Thelin WON’T be on it after all. Dave Cormack and the Pittodrie board are looking for their third manager of the season after Neil Warnock’s infamous 33-day tenure came to an end with Peter Leven in charge for now. They have been interviewing this week with a view to making an appointment during the international break and having a new boss installed well in time for their return to action against Ross County a week on Saturday. Elfsborg boss Thelin had been one of the frontrunners. He almost landed the job before Barry Robson and he quickly emerged as a top target earlier this month, but it looks increasingly unlikely that he will be available, in a major disappointment to decision-makers at Pittodrie. The Scottish Sun report he’s expected to stay at Elfsborg with their season due to commence on April 1. And it means Aberdeen will have to look elsewhere for their next permanent boss, with Neil Lennon admitting an interest while Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill has also been forced to address links. The next manager will be Aberdeen’s fifth in three years since Derek McInnes left in 2021 and club legend Russell Anderson reckons the high turnover needs to come to an end with the next appointment. He said: “There’s been a lot of upheaval at the club over the last few seasons and it’s not good for anybody. New managers come in and they have their own ideas, sign their own players which means existing players are maybe surplus to requirements or don’t fit into certain styles or tactics. “The club need to decide what kind of identity they want and the team they want – that will drive the decision as to who will be the right type of person to be the next manager, there’s quality in the team but it’s been a challenging season – there’s plenty of rumours flying about so it’ll be interesting to see. “For the long-term vision of a club it’s not healthy for a manager to be changed as often as it is, everybody would agree with that – this next manager appointment Aberdeen make is crucial, it’s important every time to make the right appointment and in any business recruitment is the most important thing.”

Eight dead after South Korean tanker capsizes off Japan

TOKYO: Eight people died after a South Korean-flagged tanker capsized off Japan on Wednesday (Mar 20), the coast guard said, reversing its earlier statements that they were rescued. “They were confirmed dead at a hospital,” a spokesman told AFP. One other person was in a non-life-threatening condition while two others remained missing. The chemicals tanker had 11 people on board including two South Koreans, eight Indonesians and one Chinese, the coast guard said. The tanker was carrying 980 tonnes of acrylic acid, but there was no information on whether that compound had leaked into the ocean, according to the coast guard. Footage from Japanese broadcaster NHK showed the overturned red hull of the ship as well as a life raft, as a coast guard ship pounded through heavy waves and a helicopter flew overhead. The crew notified the coast guard early on Wednesday that the vessel was tilting and requested help near the island of Mutsure, off Japan’s southwestern coast, NHK said. The Japan Coast Guard received the rescue call soon after 7am (2200 GMT Tuesday) saying that the ship was “tilting, please help us”, the spokesman said. NHK named the vessel as the Keoyoung Sun, which specialist website vesselfinder.com said is a chemical and oil products tanker built in 1996, measuring 69m in length. The ship’s operator declined to comment. Japan was being buffeted by strong winds on Wednesday with high waves and heavy snow forecast in the coming days especially along mountainous areas. Gusts of up to 126kmh were expected in several areas, NHK reported. Earlier this month, a South Korean fishing boat carrying nine crew, including seven Indonesians, capsized off the country’s southern coast, leaving six missing. The vessel overturned in waters 68km south of an island in the coastal city of Tongyeong early Saturday morning, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency. South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol ordered relevant authorities to “do their best to save lives by mobilising all available personnel and equipment, including navy and fishing boats”, his office said in a statement. The boat that capsized had set sail from the country’s southernmost island of Jeju on Thursday morning, and was engaged in fishing, Yonhap said. The news agency said patrol boats, navy vessels, and aircraft have been deployed for the ongoing search efforts.

Broncos dealt devastating blow as Haas’s return timeline extended 

Broncos prop Payne Haas is now facing an extended stint on the sidelines, with the club confirming their marquee man would require knee surgery. The Brisbane star was initially named to line up against the Panthers on Thursday night, before coach Kevin Walters confirmed on Wednesday he would be a late scratching, and would consult a specialist that afternoon. Now, the worst has been confirmed, with Broncos head of performance Dave Ballard revealing Haas would miss up to six weeks. “Payne met with a specialist today, and it was decided the best course of action was for him to have an arthroscopy next week,” Ballard said.

Aaron Hickey’s Euro 2024 in doubt as timeframe set on Scotland star’s return to training

Aaron Hickey’s hopes of representing Scotland at Euro 2024 are in doubt due to the Brentford man’s hamstring tear. The 21-year-old full-back last played for the Bees in October’s 2-0 win at Chelsea, but has since been sidelined since with a serious hamstring injury. There was originally hope he might return this month, but manager Thomas Frank revealed a setback to his recovery six weeks ago. Hickey is expected to return to training in around three weeks, but will need time to build his match fitness before being ready for the tournament. Hickey has played 14 times for Scotland and looked a shoo-in for their Euro 2024 squad until his injury. They face Germany, Switzerland and Hungary in the group stage this summer. Ex-Scotland international Steven Pressley is now the Bees’ head of development and said this week: “Hickey has been really unfortunate with this injury. “It’s going to be touch-and-go whether he makes the Euros or not. It’s not a case of ruling Aaron out — he might yet make it.” Meanwhile, Frank revealed last month: “He has had a minor setback. “I don’t have a return date right now. I hope [he’ll play again this season], but sometimes when players have been out for a while, I like to see them back out on the grass before I make a guess on what’s possible. “It’s not completely torn; he just had an operation on his hamstring.”

Australia hosts China FM Wang Yi, sees ‘stability’ in ties

An Australian foreign ministry official said Wong had warned the reforms would “further erode rights and freedoms”, breach international commitments and have “far-reaching impacts, including on individuals in Australia”. The remarks are unlikely to have gone down well with Wong’s Chinese guest. Beijing has described similar criticism from Britain, the United States and the European Union as “slandering and smearing”. As the foreign ministers met, protesters gathered on the lawns of Australia’s parliament, drawing attention to alleged human rights abuses within China. A small group of demonstrators later clashed with police outside the Chinese embassy, brandishing Tibetan flags and shouting “free Tibet” as they rushed towards the building’s front gates. TRADE RESTRICTIONS Australia’s relationship with China began unravelling in 2018, when Canberra excluded telecommunications giant Huawei from its 5G network on security grounds and later passed laws on foreign interference. Then in 2020, Australia called for an international investigation into the origins of COVID-19 – an action China saw as politically motivated. In response, Beijing slapped trade restrictions on a slew of Australian exports, including barley, beef and wine, while halting its coal imports. Most of those barriers have been gradually wound back as relations have been repaired. Wang said a final decision on ending wine tariffs would be made at the end of the month, signalling restrictions could soon be lifted. Before the trade restrictions were imposed, China was the largest destination for Australian bottled wine – accounting for 33 per cent of export revenue in 2020, according to Australian government data. Wong said the talks had also touched on the global nickel market, which has been upended by a surge in exports from Indonesia – enabled by massive Chinese investments and a revolution in refining techniques. Prices have fallen about 40 per cent in the past year alone, prompting many once-dominant Australian firms to rethink projects or write down the value of their assets. Wang later told an Australia-China business council that common interests between the two countries far outweigh their differences. “China is Australia’s largest trading partner and the biggest customer for our products like iron ore”, said Rio Tinto mining executive and meeting participant Simon Trott, welcoming a “stabilisation” of relations.

Taye Currency not rushed to London hospital – Aide debunks rumour

Mr. Tope Eluyefa, the media aide to Ibadan-born Fuji musician, Alhaji Taye Akande Adebisi, also known as Taye Currency, has denied a media report that the musician was rushed to a London hospital after collapsing at a live performance. Eluyefa dismissed the report while speaking with DAILY POST on Wednesday. Taye Currency is currently in London, United Kingdom, for some live performances. Eluyefa, in a telephone conversation, said he called the musician immediately he saw the online reports and it was revealed that nothing of such happened to him. “It is not true. I called him this morning. We spoke around 8:30am. “Ask them where he slumped. All his performances are recorded live. He is at home now,” he said.

Decriminalising abortion wins cross-party support from MPs as vote looms

A Commons move to decriminalise abortion has won cross-party support from MPs. Senior Labour MP Dame Diana Johnson has tabled an amendment to the Criminal Justice Bill which would see the “removal of women from the criminal law related to abortion”. Thirty-one MPs have already backed as “sponsors” the proposed change to the law which would end the prosecution of women who terminate pregnancies after the 24-week limit. They include Caroline Nokes, Tory chair of the Commons women and equalities committee, Daisy Cooper, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Green MP Caroline Lucas, and Plaid Cymru’s Westminster leader Liz Saville Roberts. London MPs who are sponsoring the amendment include Camberwell and Peckham MP Harriet Harman, Streatham MP Bell Ribeiro-Addy, Rupa Huq, Ealing Central and Acton, and Matthew Pennycook, Greenwich and Woolwich. MPs are expected to get a free vote on the amendment if it is called when the Criminal Justice Bill is debated after Easter. Dame Diana, chair of the Commons home affairs committee, told The Standard: “There is a widespread understanding that the laws around abortion in England and Wales are now outdated particularly the Offences Against the Persons Act 1861 which punishes a woman with life imprisonment for abortion. “My amendment to the Criminal Justice Bill has strong cross party support with over 30 MPs from six parties in the Commons and will remove the woman completely from the criminal law.” She added: “It is also supported by leading medical bodies including The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, the Royal College of GPs and the Royal College of Midwives and the BMA. Mumsnet, Refuge and Rape Crisis all support the amendment too. “Abortion providers will still be governed by The Abortion Act 1967 and all the requirement around that including the 24 week time limit will apply.” The new clause would disapply existing criminal law related to the accessing or procurement of abortion care from women acting in relation to their own pregnancy at any gestation, ensuring no woman would be liable for a prison sentence as a result of seeking to end her own pregnancy. It would not change any law regarding the provision of abortion services within a healthcare setting, including but not limited to the time limit, the grounds for abortion, or the requirement for two doctors’ approval. In a recent interview with The Telegraph, she stressed her voting record, which includes support for decriminalisation and buffer zones outside abortion clinics, “speaks for itself”. In 2019, the UK Parliament backed moves to repeal sections 58 and 59 of the Offences Against the Person Act (OAPA) 1861 in Northern Ireland – with questions raised about how Westminster would respond to equalise the legislation across the UK. The 162-year-old law banning abortion was amended in 1967, legalising abortion with an authorised provider up to 28 weeks, which was lowered to 24 weeks in 1991. There are very limited circumstances in which an abortion is permitted after 24 weeks, like when the mother’s life is at risk or the child would be born with a severe disability.
