Rowett on Russell row

BBC Sport

Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett

has been speaking about his row with Derby County forward Johnny Russell during Saturday's 2-2 draw.

Gary Rowett

He said: "I felt it was a little ungentlemanly that the ball had gone out for them because their player had a head injury and then the ball gets smashed into the corner and they try to pin us in with 30 seconds to go.

"Maybe my passion to win the game ran a bit too far. Everyone knows it's a special place for me to come back to."
