We'll make Boyd a better player; Cascarino tells Tom to quit Celts.

Marseille striker Tony Cascarino last night told Celtic star Tom Boyd: You'll be an even better player over here.

And Cascarino - who joined the French cracks from Chelsea two years ago - reckons the Celts defender would love life in France.

The Republic of Ireland ace moved to Stamford Bridge from Celtic in a swap deal for Boyd in 1992 - now he wants to team up with him.

He said: "It will be a real challenge for Tom, but it will improve his game.

"The one thing that got better in my game was my fitness. He's probably a fit lad anyway, but I'm sure it will improve even more if he joins us.

"This is a lovely place to live and he'll really enjoy it here.

"I suppose it's a little bit ironic if he does join us. After all he was the player that joined Celtic in a swap deal for me a few years back."

And Cas added: "It's the start of another exciting time for Marseille and I think the next two years are going to be really great.

"France is full of good teams and I think the way the national side has played in England has proved just how good the standard is over here."

Meanwhile French international defender Frank Leboeuf has joined Chelsea in a pounds 2.5 million deal.

But he won't make his debut until 24 hours after the official start of the season.

Chelsea's opener at Southampton will be Sky Sports' first live match of the season and won't be played until Sunday, August 18.

Blantyre Vics were rocked last night after coaches Rab Sneddon and Harry Irwin walked out - just over a month after clinching the First Division title.

Secretary Tommy Corrigan admitted: "This is a total bombshell but we have to get it sorted out quickly. Anyone interested can apply in writing or phone me on 01698 829 297."

Vale of Clyde have freed Thomas Donnelly. He can be contacted on 0141 778 8207.
