Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson insists he could have asked little more of Gareth Southgate during his first season in management.

Boro finished 12th in the Barclays Premiership on 46 points - two places and a single point better than they achieved during the previous campaign under Steve McClaren, the man now leading England.

Gibson said: "If somebody had offered us 46 points and 12th in the Premier League at the start of what was going to be a very, very difficult season for our club, we would have taken it with both hands."
