Grant unhappy with booing of Chelsea's England stars

Chelsea boss Avram Grant was unhappy with the Derby fans that booed his England players during yesterday's 2-0 win.

The Derby boo-boys turned on Shaun Wright-Phillips, Frank Lampard and captain John Terry, returning after a seven-week absence following a knee operation.

Their every touch was booed, in particular with Lampard often facing appalling provocation which angered Grant, who said: "I didn't like it.

"All the England players tried to do their best but it didn't work out.

"I understand the supporters are disappointed. You can feel it.

"All of the England wanted England to qualify and the players wanted it too, but now they need support."
