Derby midfielder Robbie Savage has taken a swipe at the Leicester supporters who booed him on Saturday.

The 35-year-old played for Leicester between 1997 and 2002 but his success during that spell appears to have been quickly forgotten by Foxes fans. Savage was part of a squad which appeared in two League Cup finals and cemented itself in the Premier League.

"It's disappointing, but I don't really care. When I went back to the Walkers Stadium I got booed there as well. It just proves that some fans can be fickle," Savage told the Derby Telegraph.

"I was one of their all-time best players and played in one of their best midfields ever. Me, Muzzy (Izzet) and Neil Lennon were the best midfield the club has ever had."

"All credit to the Derby fans who gave Steve Howard and Matt Oakley such a great reception. They deserved it because they were great stalwarts for this club. It just proves the difference between the two sets of fans."
