BBC Sport - Derby County: Steve McClaren rules out signing BBC reporter to ease injury crisis

McClaren rules out move for BBC reporter

Desperate times call for desperate measures, but Derby County boss Steve McClaren has not yet reached the depths of having to turn to BBC Radio Derby's Owen Bradley to solve the club's mounting left-back crisis.

Stand-in defender Ikechi Anya became the fourth left-back to fall foul of the injury jinx in the 3-0 defeat against Norwich City on Monday.

But despite already having Craig Forsyth, Max Lowe and Marcus Olsson sidelined, former England manager McClaren was scathing in his assessment of Bradley's talents when ruling out a January transfer move for the 29-year-old.
