Published Add your comment

New West Brom boss Steve Clarke is "delighted" to be facing former employers Liverpool in his first game in charge and insists there are no hard feelings following his Anfield exit.

The Premier League fixtures were released on Monday, the same day Clarke was unveiled as the new Albion boss. They threw up an intriguing opening day clash between the Clarke's new team and the club where he worked as Kenny Dalglish's assistant before his fellow Scot was sacked.

Clarke, who is undertaking his first job as a head coach following 14 years as a number two, said: "I was delighted to get Liverpool first game. I've got nothing but good memories from my time at Liverpool so to face them in the first game, here at the Hawthorns, will be fantastic. It takes a lot to get me really excited (when I heard), I was excited."
