A lying shame; WORLD OF FOOTBALL.

Byline: KEVIN McALLION

SIENA are using lie detectors in a bid to make sure they don't sign any dopes.

The Italian club are forcing transfer targets to take polygraph tests because they are worried about being embarrassed by drug scandals.

Each player is asked around 70 questions in a 15-minute interview and if they start fibbing Siena will pull the plug on the deal.

Team psychologist Dr Umberto Zerbini said: "Some players were a little scared but they were quickly reassured when we told them we were not going to go digging deep into their pasts."

Soti Kyrgiakos is lucky Liverpool didn't use the machine before his shock move to Anfield. He would have started sweating if they had asked him: "Weren't you that big haddy who played for Rangers?"
