    Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett 'understands' Derby County speculation

    Joe Jones

    Birmingham City boss Gary Rowett has claimed he "understands" the speculation linking him with former club Derby County, but proceeded to play down the reports.

    Paul Clement was sacked by the Rams on Monday, with Darren Wassall placed in charge for the rest of the season.

    Rowett said: "We've been linked with seven or eight jobs this season. This is all testament to how well the team has been playing and the feel-good factor round the club right now.

    "I understand the link. I live in Derby and my lad goes to the games. It's always a difficult one to hear, but you can write down the list of every team I've played for in my career.

    "What if the Charlton job becomes available, or Cambridge United or Everton? Am I going to get linked with them too?

    "Like I've said many times before we're incredibly focused on what we're doing here. And, after losing our last game, all we're focused on is to try and win the next one and continue this play-off charge."
