THE CHILL WHEN DAMON ALBARN'S MEN COME KNOCKING AT YOUR DOOR: Footballer turned boot magnate Craig Johnston has been declared bankrupt - by a range of creditors including, oddly, Damon Albarn:

Shareholder Albarn demanded his money back after Johnston failed to get official backing for his scheme - which aimed to keep youngsters focused on sport and away from crime.

Yesterday the singer's spokeswoman said: "Damon was named on the petition for bankruptcy, but there is nothing further to say."

The bankruptcy looks set to bring down Craig's highly-praised scheme for using football as a positive force amongst inner-city kids.
