Savage in hot water after tunnel 'fracas'

Click to follow

Robbie Savage is at the centre of more controversy today after reports he was involved in an altercation in the tunnel following Blackburn's 2-1 defeat at Birmingham on Wednesday.

Savage, who scored against his former club, is said to have been involved in an argument with two Birmingham players who confronted Savage outside the changing rooms, after taking exception to his goal celebration. Stewards and other players are said to have broken up the fracas but punches are not believed to have been thrown.

Savage also upset Blues chairman David Gold by refusing to shake his hand, although Savage insisted he had not snubbed Gold.
