Football: Grobbelaar free to go

Click to follow
BRUCE GROBBELAAR has been granted a free transfer by the Liverpool manager, Roy Evans, after contract talks with the goalkeeper, who won six championship and three FA Cup winners' medals in his 13 years at the club, broke down.

Ronnie Whelan is set to leave on a free transfer after refusing to accept terms and Paul Stewart and Mark Walters, loaned to Crystal Palace and Stoke respectively this season, are also expected to depart.

Bryan Robson, whose 13- year career at Manchester United will end this weekend, is delaying a decision on his future until after the FA Cup final.

'I have had several offers to consider and won't be rushed,' Robson, whom it is believed Middlesbrough are trying to tempt to Ayresome Park as player-manager in a pounds 250,000- a-year deal, said. 'I'll certainly not be making any decision for at least another week.'
