Watch: Gary Rowett Lost His Shit With Referee, Players & Fans In Derby

Watch: Gary Rowett Lost His Shit With Referee, Players & Fans In Derby

Had things gone a little differently, Gary Rowett could be managing Stoke City in the Premier League now.

Judging by his antics in the climactic fixture of Sky Sports' 'Rivalry Weekend', the Derby County manager could really have livened things up.

Taking on Nottingham Forest in today's East Midlands derby, Rowett, formerly of Birmingham City and Burton Albion, demonstrated his frustration with what will go down as two points lost in their promotion chase.

Rowett was not shy in sharing disappointment with both the referee and Forest's Lee Tomlin.

It was an opinion he wasn't shy sharing with the fourth official either.


On the receiving end of some strange abuse from the opposition Forest fans all afternoon, they attempted to berate Rowett on his choice of footwear.

Speaking of the incident after the match, Rowett had his own assessment of his 'style' however:

All I would say about the trainer shout is, look, when this level of fashion hits Nottingham in about six months, you’ll probably see 25,000 people walking around Nottingham with these type of trainers on!

Until someone opens a door to this type of style then unfortunately you’ll have to make do with wellies.

This followed his own unique handling of the situation on the pitch.
