Bradley Johnson: Rams star fronts up to 'Derby City' gaffe

Johnson acknowledges 'Derby City' error

Derby County's record signing Bradley Johnson says his team-mates wasted no time in giving him stick about his transfer deadline day gaffe which saw him call his new club "Derby City".

Johnson, who joined only moments before a live interview with BBC East Midlands Today, said: "I had been at Norwich for four years and was used to saying City.

"I'm sorry if I offended anyone. I just wanted a hole to swallow me up.

"The next day here the lads were like, 'welcome to Derby City'."

Some impressive displays in midfield have also helped win round Rams fans, with back-to-back away wins moving the club up to 10th in the Championship table.
