Juan Carlos Valerón took to pitch at the Riazor for the last time in a Deportivo de la Coruña shirt. The Spaniard bid farewell to the fans with tears in his eyes following Depor's bitter relegation from the top flight.


"From this moment on I no longer play for Deportivo. My time in La Coruña is over. I'm greatly saddened by this situation. I made my decision weeks ago. Hopefully I will cross paths with Depor again in the future," he said at press conference.


Valerón added: "I'm not retiring. I have to think about my future over the next few weeks and then I'll see what I can do."

A drama-filled last evening of 'La Liga' action ended in joy for Real Sociedad, who clinched fourth place and a spot in the Champions League qualifying rounds ahead of Valencia, who joins Málaga and Betis in the Europa League. There was also euphoria in Vigo, as Celta pulled off a great escape to send Mallorca, Deportivo and Zaragoza down to the second division.


Prior to kick-off, Deportivo was the only of the four relegation candidates with its fate in its own hands, with a win enough to secure safety. The snag: it faced a Real Sociedad side whose two-way shootout with Valencia for Champions League qualification had gone down to the wire. Montanier's men kept up their side of the bargain, resisting a late Depor onslaught to hold out for a 1-0 win thanks to a first-half Griezmann strike. They were rewarded when four goals from Álvaro Negredo inspired Sevilla to a 4-3 victory over Valencia, crushing the latter's Champions League dreams.


Celta, meanwhile, earned a hard-fought win over an Espanyol side that on paper had nothing to play for. Natxo Insa's effort 16 minutes in was ultimately enough for the Vigo outfit to stay up, but the tension was palpable at the Balaídos stadium until the very last kick.


Mallorca and Zaragoza were both up against it from the off and ultimately sank into the quagmire in front of their fans, albeit in contrasting fashion. The Islanders thumped Valladolid 4-2, only for Celta's win to render the result irrelevant. Zaragoza, meanwhile, kept Atlético at bay for 84 minutes before caving in and losing 3-1. As things panned out, however, not even a victory would have rescued the Aragonese side.

A fight between Deportivo and Zaragoza fans in a Coruña bar left two injured and significant damage to the establishment.


National Police sources explained that between 25 and 30 Zaragoza supporters, whose team faced Deportivo at the Riazor stadium, were at the El Pescador bar in the centre of the Galician city when they were attacked by between 70 and 80 Deportivo fans.


Both the local and national police intervened and prevented things from escalating. However, there was a clash in which the radicals attacked using bats.


As a result, two people required medical assistance, one of whom had to be admitted to hospital to receive stitches.
