Mick McCarthy has apologised for claiming that Paul Scharner was ‘taking the p***’ in the shirt incident in the Black Country derby.

Speaking to Sky Sports McCarthy said.

‘I’m sorry I even got involved in that because Scharner played well. There was a lot made of it before I even knew what was on the shirt. Having found out I thought ‘what the hell?’ and it didn’t bother me. People forget sometimes that I’ve been a player, and when someone does that to you when you’re hurting, those are the kind of things that upset you.’
