THE female Brit soldier left fighting for her life after allegedly being glassed in a Magaluf club by her squaddie pal has been released from hospital. Sarah Ann Garrity, 22, was discharged from Son Espases Hospital in Palma after more than 24 hours in intensive care and three days on a general ward. The soldier had been in a Spanish hospital after a life-saving op Sarah was stabbed in the neck with a glass by pal Sydney The pair were holidaying together in Magaluf when Sarah tried to break up a row, it is claimed It was not immediately clear this morning if the Scots-born squaddie was still in Majorca or had flown back to the UK to continue her recovery. Her hospital release came after she told court officials she did not want to press charges against close friend Sydney Cole and her 19-year-old pal was released from prison and told she could return to Britain. Respected Majorcan daily Diario de Mallorca said the army pair, who had jetted to the island on holiday with another squaddie friend called Deborah Ferguson, had arranged to fly back to the UK together despite the Monday 1am incident at Banana’s nightclub. Cole, 19, will continue to be probed by a court in the Majorcan capital Palma on suspicion of wounding her friend with a dangerous weapon, a crime which carries a prison sentence in Spain of up to five years. On Monday night she told a court that a glass she threw on the floor broke and part of it hit Sarah Ann Garrity in the neck, leaving her fighting for her life. Victim Sarah Garrity, left, kissing the suspect Sydney Cole, right Sydney Cole was hauled before a judge accused of attacking her squaddie pal in a Magaluf bar The 19-year-old appeared in court on Monday Sarah Garrity, 22, was stabbed by her friend on holiday in Magaluf The Glasgow-born squaddie had her throat cut after trying to intervene in a row between two Cole and another Brit pal named only as Deborah, both of whom she was sharing a hotel room with, it was claimed. Cole and Deborah had stopped speaking to each other after a 14-hour booze bender and the situation reportedly turned violent after Sarah tried to get the two women to make up. Scot Deborah had punched Cole in the face and she reacted by pulling her hair, local news site Ultima Hora said. Deborah is believed to have been questioned by police but her version of events has not yet been made public. ‘BREAKING UP A ROW’ Witnesses have told police Cole threw the glass directly at Sarah and not on the floor as she insisted. She is currently languishing in a Majorcan jail after being told she was under investigation for a crime of “wounding with a dangerous weapon.” She has not yet been charged with any offence, as is normal in Spain where formal charges are only laid shortly before trial. Sarah, who lives in Middlesborough and is in the Royal Logistics Corps, spent 24 hours in intensive care before being moved to a general ward yesterday. ’14-HOUR BENDER’ Her condition has improved following a life-saving op. Reports claim the women had been on a 14-hour bender before the incident at 1am on Monday. Sydney is understood to have told the judge they started drinking at 11am in the unnamed Magaluf hotel they were staying at and they continued to booze throughout the day before heading to an event. Cole is reported to have told the court: “It was an accident. Sarah and I were very drunk because we had been drinking since 11 on Sunday morning but I didn’t want to cut her throat. She is my best friend. “We began drinking at 11am in the hotel, afterwards in a bar and then again in the room.

The source said: “A duty judge on Monday night remanded the young woman in prison. “She is initially being investigated on suspicion of an alleged crime of wounding with a dangerous weapon.” Well-placed sources say a decision about an eventual prosecution could depend on whether Scottish-born victim Sarah Ann Garrity, who is in the Royal Logistics Corps, decides to make a formal complaint against her close friend.

FOR Maurizio Sarri, it was like pulling teeth. Chelsea’s Italian boss, absent from his duties at Stamford Bridge yesterday due to a trip to the dentist, flung his coat to the floor in anger as Slavia’s third went in. Slavia Prague put the boot in on Chelsea star man Eden Hazard at the Bridge Pedro salutes his early double as Chelsea raced 4-1 up before it got dramatic Here, he saw the two sides to his team present throughout this season: From his beloved Sarriball that brings a smile to your face to the absolute toothless. There was never a danger of being knocked out, not once the four early goals went in. But it felt like it. Chelsea advanced to the last four of a European competition, yet their fans filtered down the Kings Road dumbstruck by what they’d witnessed. From a 4-1 lead at half-time, thanks to Pedro’s double, a calamity own-goal and Olivier Giroud’s 10th European strike of the season, to being dominated in a second 45 where they conceded twice. At times, Chelsea were hanging on. Far too often this season Sarri’s side have appeared to be suffering from an undiagnosed case of narcolepsy. And against better opposition this could have been the most embarrassing night Stamford Bridge has seen since the 90s. It summed up their campaign. Blues have been like a blindfolded heavyweight veteran, swinging their way towards the final rounds in the hope that a knockout blow will land. Eden Hazard is usually the one to deliver it. This looks likely to be the start of his farewell tour and it was an uncomfortable one as the Czechs targeted Hazard’s ankles with some early reducers. NARCOLEPSY A banner to the brilliant Belgian was unfurled in the Matthew Harding stand prior to kick-off with Madrid-bound Hazard likely to play here just three more times. Seven years have passed since he announced his arrival. “I’m signing for the European champions,” he wrote on social media. Chelsea will hope he leaves them as one, too. With their chances of finishing in the Prem’s top four precarious, the Europa League provides a backdoor route to Europe’s top table. Sarri has a talented side but one that lacks character and grit. While they play a far more attractive style of football than the Chelsea side that won this competition six years ago, they lack those leaders. There’s no Frank Lampard anymore, no Ashley Cole or Petr Cech. No Branislav Ivanovic, the hero on that night against Benfica. Sarri will have to rely on his football to get them through to the end. But that’s improbable after tonight. Their only possible chance is through the magnificent Hazard. It would, of course, be the perfect parting gift. Pedro flies in for the opener – the first of his two goals when Chelsea cruised into a 4-1 lead after just 27 minutes, only to win just 4-3 on the night Europa League specialist Olivier Giroud slots the third goal for Chelsea in Prague Pedro boosted his own Chelsea future with a neat double in what was initially a comfortable journey into the Europa League semi-finals [article-rail-section title=”most read in football” posts_category=”10″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] [bc_video video_id=”6027351433001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Real Madrid step up bid to land Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Man Utd’s Paul Pogba in dream double transfer swoop”]
