Ronnie O'Sullivan eased into the last eight of the UK Championship after thrashing Robert Milkins 6-0.

The Chigwell star was never stretched as he booked a quarter-final tie against Stuart Bingham.

O'Sullivan, who turned 38 today, said: "I thought it'd be nice to still be in the tournament on my birthday.

"I don't like birthdays and I don't like presents and all that malarkey, so I just want to get on with my job and play.

"I'm here to play a tournament, I'm not here to celebrate birthdays - I want to start forgetting birthdays, to be fair, because I'm 38 and I feel like I'm giving everyone 10 years.

"I don't want to get sucked into that, singing me 'Happy Birthday', because I won't be happy about that.

"People pay money to come and see me play, not to sing me 'Happy Birthday'. I've got a big match on tomorrow and I need to approach it."
