Football: Shearer's set to take action on Kelly book.

ALAN Shearer is set to serve proceedings on former FA chief executive Graham Kelly this week following revelations in Kelly's autobiography Sweet FA.

The England and Newcastle captain was deeply hurt after Kelly made allegations about comments Shearer allegedly made about his involvement in the England team and the World Cup following a controversial tackle on Neil Lennon

Lawyers at Shearer's management company, the Marquee Group, believe the article is libellous, leading people to gain the wrong impression of Shearer.

Kelly's book is of further embarrassment to the FA, who are now ready to gag coach Kevin Keegan in a bid to restore some trust among senior management and players.

Keegan could become the first England manager to suffer, being denied the right to write a book unless the FA first approve its publication.
