DOUBLE gold medalist Rebecca Adlington has hinted that she could retire this year should she have a successful Olympics - or fail to win a place on the Great Britain team.

Adlington wants to repeat her heroics of Beijing in London but admitted she had other ambitions should she decide to walk away from the pool.

“It wouldn’t have been the end of the world if I hadn’t made Beijing because London 2012 was always the target, but this time if I don’t make it I would have to reassess everything and would probably retire - I’d have to ask the question, ‘Have I really got four more years left in me?’,” said Adlington, 22, who added she may choose to consider carrying on should she not the results she yearns for in London.

“If I’m happy that I’ve done what I can, I’d be ready... I would like to do more commentating, Strictly (Come Dancing) I’d love to do - and then I’d love to do the team manager’s job for Britain. I think I’d have a lot to offer from the right perspective.”

Ipswich Town take on Bolton Wanderers in a Championship game at The Macron Stadium tomorrow. STUART WATSON previews the action.

Ipswich Town will announce the loan signing of Birmingham City midfielder Stephen Gleeson tomorrow morning.

Bundesliga side Werder Bremen are said to be one of a number of clubs considering a January bid for Ipswich Town loanee Bersant Celina, according to reports.

Bartosz Bialkowski and Cole Skuse will both be fit for Ipswich Town’s trip to Bolton on Saturday.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy is hopeful he will add to his squad in time for Saturday’s visit to Bolton.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy says he expects keeper Bartosz Bialkowski to still be at the club come the end of the season.

Tommy Smith will be allowed to pursue a move to MLS side Colorado Rapids as long as Ipswich Town are able to sign a replacement defender.

Ipswich Town travel to Bolton Wanderers for a Championship clash on Saturday (3pm).

Bersant Celina could have joined Bolton Wanderers in the summer rather than moving to Ipswich Town - and he’s convinced he made the right decision.

Ipswich Town’s Bryan Klug was spotted keeping an eye on Colchester United and Wycombe at the weekend.
