Hodgson apologies for armband strop

Published Add your comment

West Brom head coach Roy Hodgson has apologised after he threw away an armband worn in memory of late Albion legend Ray Barlow during Sunday's 3-1 defeat to Newcastle

Hodgson was seen to tear off the armband and throw it to the ground after the Magpies scored their third goal at the Hawthorns.

Hodgson said: "It is something I did without thinking out of pure frustration at conceding the third goal. I meant no disrespect by it to such a great player, nor his family, and offer my sincere apologies if it has caused offence."
