Quick Reads

The FA Cup quarter-finals were the focus of sporting attention in England over the weekend as Chelsea, Manchester City, Leicester and Southampton booked their place in the last four. 

Elsewhere, Celtic and Rangers put rivalries to one side before the Old Firm derby and Robert Lewandowski maintained his fine goalscoring form for Bayern Munich.
