Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson has apologised to deposed England boss Steve McClaren after making critical comments about his reign on Teesside.

The two men worked together for five years between 2001 and McClaren´s appointment to the national job. However, in the wake of the Yorkshireman´s departure from Soho Square, Gibson was less than effusive in an interview published by the Sunday Times.

But Gibson called the Times to say: "Despite their accuracy, my comments did not represent my thoughts and assessment of Steve´s five-year period at Middlesbrough. The McClaren years were undoubtedly the most successful this football club has ever had."
