Gerrard, Agger will miss the trip to Holland for Europa Lague match

FERNANDO TORRES is ready to spearhead Liverpool's attack in Utrecht tomorrow night – but Steven Gerrard will miss the trip to Holland.

Liverpool's squad flew out for their second game in Europa League Group K today without their skipper – who has been rested – and defender Daniel Agger.

However, the good news for Reds fans centred around Torres, who was part of a strong travelling party which includes Jamie Carragher, Joe Cole, Raul Meireles, Pepe Reina and Dirk Kuyt.

This is only the fifth time in the past 12 months that Torres has been involved in a European away trip and the first since the Europa League quarter-final with Benfica in April. (WHAT?!)

TORRES, WE NEED YOU TO DO THIS TOMORROW! Anywho, this is good and bad news. Thank GOD most of our starters are making this trip - shows that maybe Roy and company are starting to take the Europa League seriously. Also, we see that Reina's a class act, always good to see. But Agger's injured and Gerrard isn't going? Oyyyy.

there should be more parties like this.

CELTIC star Darren O'Dea shows outstanding man-marking skills - by SNOGGING his former team-mate Chris Killen.

The 23-year-old Irish defender and striker Killen locked lips in a boozy embrace.

The smooching pair were captured on camera at a casino in Glasgow during a Bhoys' night out.

A source said last night: "The two of them had a bit too much to drink. They were having a good laugh and the next minute they began smooching.

"They were rather drunk and the carry-on turned into a full-on snog.

"They're a right pair of jokers, always up for a laugh."

Republic of Ireland star O'Dea is currently on loan to Ipswich while 28-year-old New Zealand star Killen now plays for Shenzhen Ruby in China.

Last night O'Dea - who lives with stunning girlfriend Melissa Cheung, 26 - laughed off the footage.

He said: "It was Killen wanting a goodnight kiss!"

OIC. When footballers behave badly: Barry Ferguson will NEVER play for Scotland again

Barry Ferguson has decided against a return to the Scotland fold for the Euro 2012 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Spain.

"During a live radio broadcast last week, Barry Ferguson intimated that he may consider a return to international football. In subsequent conversations with the national team coach, Craig Levein, and the team scout, Michael Oliver, Barry has confirmed this not to be the case," said an SFA spokesman.

"He will therefore not be considered for selection and the matter is now closed."

Levein has been eager to welcome the Birmingham midfielder back in the fold since becoming George Burley's successor in December last year. Allan McGregor, who had been banned indefinitely by the Scottish Football Association along with Ferguson, quickly returned to the squad when Levein reopened the door to the pair.

But Ferguson's personal circumstances had changed after leaving Rangers as a consequence of his drinking session at the Scotland hotel and subsequent gestures towards photographers after being dropped for a World Cup qualifier against Iceland in April 2009.
