Riera back in training at Liverpool as Russia move likely

The future of Liverpool winger Albert Riera remains in doubt after his critical interview last week.

The future of Liverpool winger Albert Riera remains in doubt after his critical interview last week.

Reds boss Rafa Benitez suspended him from the club immediately after the interview made it's way to the English press.

Riera will be further disciplined - in the form of a fine - by the club later this week when he returns to training.

But such was Benitez's anger at the content and timing of the Spain international's remarks - coming on the eve of the crucial Europa League last-16 second tie at home to Lille - there is still a possibility the player could be hastily jettisoned.

Riera, who has a Russian wife, has been linked with a move to CSKA Moscow and also Spartak Moscow as the Russian league's transfer window does not close until next month.
