Wayne waves goodbye to the Championship - again

On Saturday, despite losing at home to Leeds, Wayne Routledge's QPR celebrated the FA's dubious decision to avoid imposing a points deduction for transfer irregularities, which confirmed them as second tier champions. Jose Enrique can expect to come up against the nippy winger wearing hoops next season - although the hue of Enrique's own shirt remains uncertain.

Meanwhile, Ben Tozer scored what proved to be a spectacular winner in the final game of his loan spell at Northampton on Saturday, as the Cobblers won away to Morecambe. There was also weekend delight for another loanee, Fraser Forster, who kept a clean sheet as Celtic won 2-0 at Kilmarnock - but his hopes of emulating Routledge and picking up a title-winner's medal for his loan club remain slim, as maximum points for rivals Rangers in their last two games would secure the crown regardless of what Forster and Celtic can muster.

And finally, congratulations to Whitley Bay on their historic third consecutive FA Vase win yesterday. Bet the Bacardi Breezers were in full flow afterwards...
