CYPRUS side Anorthosis Famagusta could kill off a deal with Aberdeen for Bulgarian Ilian Kiriakov because of their greed - they have quadrupled the price for the midfielder on the valuation set a year ago.

Kiriakov went on trial to Rapid Vienna with a #200,000 tag but the Austrians pulled out of transfer talks because the player failed to impress.

Aberdeen have offered around #400,000 to Anorthosis, but their vice-president Alex Demetriou said: ``The offer was ridiculously low. It is clearly not good enough. We are hoping for #800,000.'' Now Dons manager Roy Aitken must decide whether to up his bid or look at other targets.

q.THE SFA were in lenient mood yesterday as a number of managers and players were called in for voicing views in after-match comments or articles.

Hearts manager Jim Jefferies was censured and warned by the general purposes committee, as were Partick's Murdo MacLeod, Rangers defender and coach John Brown, and Dumbarton striker Sammy McGivern.

Ex-Celt Frank McGarvey, who, although not at present attached to a club, is still under the jurisdiction of the SFA, was warned for his published views.

Celtic 4, Dundee 1

TWO-GOAL Brian Vaugh led the celebrations as Celtic lifted the BP Youth Cup for the first time since 1989.

Celtic took the lead in 28 minutes when, with the Dundee defence back-pedalling inside their own area, Vaugh scored with a low drive. But a minute later Jerry O'Driscoll snapped up a Richard Gordon pass to force the ball under the body of keeper Andy McCondichie.

Vaugh restored the lead in 70 minutes with another drive, six minutes later Barry Elliot added a third with a header, and in the final minute Charlie McGuinness completed the scoring.
