GETTY Sky’s newest epic features incredible acting and a bold premise No, it’s not Game Of Thrones’ final season, but Sky Atlantic’s new series, Britannia.

I had it in 1983 before I joined Arsenal from Celtic. I didn’t want to leave the Hoops, and at the turn of the year the gaffer Billy McNeill was trying to get me on a deal similar to other first-team players. But I was summoned to a meeting at the then owner Desmond White’s office in Glasgow and was told that it was time for me to move on and they would be selling me at the end of the season.

Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes: We have NO money to spend to catch Celtic

McInnes believes Brendan Rodgers’ side would be disappointed if they failed to make history with a second successive treble, such is the gulf between the Hoops and the rest of the pack.

Odsonne Edouard: Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers in no rush to make deal permanent

The Hoops have first option to buy the 19-year-old from PSG this summer for £7million. That would eclipse the £6m they paid for both Chris Sutton in 2000 and John Hartson in 2001. Edouard has impressed Rodgers with the way he has adapted to his new life in Glasgow. The French teenager has played 13 times for Celtic, scoring four goals including a hat-trick against Motherwell. But Rodgers feels there is more to come from him and is prepared to bide his time before making a final call on the…

Kyrie Irving: Boston Celtics star reveals plan to beat 76ers in NBA London clash

The Celtics currently sit atop the Eastern Conference while Philadelphia are fighting for their first playoff berth since 2012. And much of Boston’s success this year has been down to their rigid defence, despite losing players such as Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder in the summer. They lead the league in opponents Points per game, limiting teams to just 97.6 throughout the season. And they have improved that further in their last three matches, with sides averaging just 85.7 points against them, including keeping the Cleveland Cavaliers to just 88…
