UEFA are considering taking disciplinary action against Arsenals Eduardo after both Celtic and the Scottish Football Asso- ciation called for a retrospective ban to be imposed, following last nights diving scandal. The Croatia international conned Span- ishrefereeManuelMejutoGonzaleztowin a penalty which effectively killed the Champions League qualifying tie. Bitter Celtic midfielder Massimo Donati, whoscoredaninjury-timeconsolationgoal in a 5-1 aggregate defeat, raged: If it is clear on television then UEFA must act against Eduardo and ban him. I think he should get a two-match suspension. In life, you are either honest or not. It is bettertobehonestinyourlife.Somepeople are not like that. Donati pointed to Hearts winger Saulius Mikloiunas, who was given a two-match ban for diving by UEFA after winning a penalty for Lithuania against Scotland, while Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty is serving the same sentence for cheating against Aberdeen last May. Headded:TheRangersplayer(Lafferty) was given a ban in Scotland. For me, what Eduardo did to us is the same. It is a bad situation. So UEFA must take action. And Donatis cries were this morning backed up by SFA chief executive Gordon Smith, who said: Since I came into this post, I have raised the issue of simulation time and time again -- both here in Scot- land and with FIFA and UEFA. We have shown the courage to use ret- rospective punishment when it comes to simulation and I would urge UEFA to do so in this instance. Everything that can be done to stamp it out must be done -- start- ing right now. UEFA rules state a player should be sus- pended for two games if found guilty of acting with the obvious intent to cause any match official to make an incorrect decision. The governing body are reluctant to intervene and use video to analyse deci- sions made by the referee during a match but this morning confirmed they would look at last nights incident. Reports from the referee and the match delegate will arrive in UEFAs offices in Switzerland within the next 48 hours. A UEFA spokesman said: The reports are examined by the disciplinary unit and a decision about whether the incident should be looked at further will then be taken. Celtic may also contact us if they have 42 Thursday, 27 August 2009 London Lite LITESPORT CELTIC WANTDa Silvas dive could land him hot water BY JAMES GOLDMAN Andriy Sheved out of Champions League ANDRIY SHEVCHENKO will reportedly be left out of Chelseas Champions League squad, placing his future at the club under more scrutiny. Presumably, he would have hoped for more of a chance under Carlo Ancelotti, who managed him with great success at AC Milan. However, according to todays Times Ancelotti considers the Ukrainian his fourth-choice striker, behind Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka and Saloman Kalou. In effect his place in the squad will be taken by 19-year-old Daniel Sturridge, the striker signed from Manchester City in the summer, who can be registered on Chelseas B list as he is under 21. The clubs 22-strong A list squad must be lodged with Uefa by next Tuesday. Drogba and Anelka have formed a successful attacking partnership so far this season, and the settled Frenchman is now hoping to extend his current Chelsea contract. Everything is going well and I dont need to move any more. I am just glad to help my club and to be here, he said. I am very glad to play and to score goals for Chelsea and I hope I will be here for many more seasons. I like being here and enjoy playing with big players. I like playing in the Champions League and want to win everything so I will be pleased to sign for more years here. Anelka also confirmed that Chelseas main target this season is winning the Champions League, the only major prize to elude them during the Roman Abramovich era. It [the Champions League] is very important for us, Anelka said. Ancelotti has won it already with [AC] Milan and he knows everything about the Champions League. I think he will help us to do the extra to win it. Shevchenko has resisted loan moves to both Dynamo Kiev and Zenit St Petersburg. BY HARRY LANE ARSENAL ........3 CELTIC ............1 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE PLAY-OFF ARSENAL WIN 5-1 ON AGGREGATE GROUP DRAW EXPLAINED ARSENAL and Chelsea will both be in the top pot of seeds for the Champions League group stage draw that takes place at 5pm tonight. The Blues are ranked joint second in Europe, while the Gunners are sixth. That means the London duo will definitely avoid reigning champions Barcelona, as well as AC Milan and Bayern Munich. However, they can both be paired with big clubs such as Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Porto. One team from each pot of seeds will go into each of the eight groups, although clubs from the same country cannot face each other, so the likes of Lyon and Marseille will be kept apart.
