part company with the Premier League strugglers in a bid to save them from relegation Karanka left Middlesbrough on Thursday but Gibson insists he didn’t sack the Spaniard because he was willing to leave of his own accord "I know people are cynical when you say that a decision was mutual but he wasn’t sacked He sacrificed himself" Gibson told the Times on Friday Aitor Karanka was sacked after Middlesbrough’s dip in form in recent games AFP Middlesbrough sit in 19th place in the Premier League table after failing to win any of their last 10 games That perilous position prompted Gibson and

enormous amount from this experience" Gibson added "He’s got a wonderful future in football I really think that" Karanka’s assistant Steve Agnew has been placed in charge ahead of Sunday’s clash with

he would suprass later in the year (Source: Express Archives) Top News Its been 14 years since Steve Waugh famously hit a cover drive off England’s Richard Dawson to bring up his 29th Test century Although Australia did suffer a heavy defeat later on that century is regarded as the one that saved Waugh’s Test career and reversed an uncharacteristic slump in form It would also turn out to be one of his four centuries that he scored in 2003 about a year before he would retire from all forms of the game “Times goes by quickly” said Waugh with a wry smile on his face “I have a lot of memories from the SCG Not all are good memories you have some that harden you as a player” It was his 29th century which helped him equal Sir Donald Bradman’s then record of the highest Test centuries by an Australian He would later surpass that record in the same year “Getting that four off the last ball there was no better feeling in my whole career than acknowledging a crowd that was going crazy for about 10 minutes” he said “It was a boyhood dream to hit a four off the last ball and get a hundred” It was the last ball of the day and Waugh remained unbeaten on 102 But they could only manage a 1-run lead and England went on to put up 452 in the second innings largely due to a 183-run knock from Michael Vaughan that was part of a 166-run third wicket stand with his skipper Nasser Hussain
