Perrin faces sack; CHAMPIONS LEAGUE GROUP E: LYON v RANGERS, STADE DE GERLAND, TUES, 7.45pm.

LYON boss Alain Perrin has admitted he faces the sack if the six-times French champions slip up against Rangers on Tuesday.

The former Portsmouth flop has been under pressure since day one and is known to have lost the support of technical director Bernard Lacombe.

Perrin said: "The only thing that protects a manager is good results and, at a big club like this, the results have to come immediately. I realise full well what would be said if Lyon were to lose to a Scottish club in the Champions League - it's all about getting into the last 16 of the competition."
