Cotterill sickened by Doughty chants

Published Add your comment

Steve Cotterill slammed a section of Derby fans who sung distasteful songs about former Nottingham Forest owner Nigel Doughty during the east midlands derby at Pride Park.

Derby claimed a dramatic 1-0 victory but the post-match talk was dominated by shocking chants about Doughty, who was found dead at his home at the age of 54 last month. The Rams will issue a formal apology to their nearest rivals after chants of "where's your chairman gone?" and "you're going down with your chairman" from a small section of the home support.

Cotterill paid tribute to Doughty, and said: "(Derby boss) Nigel (Clough) will probably be embarrassed by that, I would imagine. Nigel is a good man, I get on very well with Nigel. I'm sure he would be very disappointed with that. And most people who have chanted that, they need to be ashamed of themselves."
