Jermaine Pennant has played down reports of a rift between himself and Stoke boss Tony Pulis.

The former Liverpool winger was left out of the squad entirely for the Potters' last two Barclays Premier League games against Everton and Tottenham, with Ryan Shotton taking his place in the side. Pennant was included in the 15-strong squad Pulis took to Istanbul for Wednesday's Europa League clash against Besiktas but found himself on the bench.

An injury to Andy Wilkinson in the first half forced Pulis' hand and he sent Pennant on, and after the 3-1 defeat the 28-year-old insisted there was nothing untoward going on. Pennant said: "The manager made 11 changes but I got on, that's good enough for me. He is keeping with his winning team. If the record isn't broken then you don't change it."
