The former Wycombe striker had been sidelined since September but returned to action as a substitute against the Gulls and grabbed a stoppage time equaliser to make it 3-3.

"Right at the end the script was written, not by me but by Matt Harrold when he scores his goal after seven months out the game," he said.

"When I mentioned his name on the subs bench he got a round of applause from the players and that tells you everything. He got his reward at the end.

"So it was really exciting afternoon even though we can complain about the goals but it is English football and that is what happens.

"The attitude was spot-on because we let ourselves down last week in our final home game but we stood our ground.

"I have got a fair bit of work to do over the next couple of weeks and we will be ready to go again next season."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
