The UK's first youth police and crime commissioner, Paris Brown, has resigned from her post following criticism of messages she posted on Twitter. The year-old said she was quitting in the interests of everyone concerned, in particular the young people of Kent. Police are investigating her over tweets she posted between the ages of 14 and 16 which could be considered racist and anti-gay. In a statement, the teenager, from Sheerness, said: "I accept that I have made comments on social networking sites which have offended many people and I am really, truly sorry for any offence that has been caused.

Steven Gerrard has no reason to care about broader endorsement of the progress he has overseen at Rangers. The imminent arrival of a long-awaited domestic title at Ibrox will afford Gerrard and his players a level of status magnified by years of frustration.

There was the odd anxious moment against Royal Antwerp but Rangers were worthy of their latest success. The Scottish club are yet to lose over 90 minutes in Europe this season, having started their Europa League campaign in the second qualifying round. The players deserve all the plaudits that will come their way. Kent and Morelos were to torture the Antwerp back line on umpteen occasions thereafter.
