Fans call for Neville's head as Valencia stumble again

Late goals from John Guidetti and Hugo Mallo gave Celta Vigo a 2-0 win at hapless Valencia to pile more misery on coach Gary Neville, who was the subject of angry chants by the Mestalla crowd.

Valencia, who exited the Europa League on away goals on Thursday, now lie 14th in the La Liga table, six points off the relegation zone.

Valencia were fortunate to make it to half-time without conceding as the Galicians created chances.

They improved in the second-half but fell behind after 80 minutes as Guidetti latched onto an audacious back-heel by Fabian Orellana to lash home.

Five minutes later captain Mallo finished off the hosts, coasting down the right-hand side and cutting inside to score.

Furious Valencia fans turned their anger on Neville, chanting "Gary go now".

Meanwhile, the Istanbul derby between Galatasaray and Fenerbahce was postponed last night because of "security concerns".

The decision came after a suicide bomb attack in Istanbul on Saturday which killed five people and left dozens injured.
