The Lancashire Evening Telegraph says seething after what he described as an unacceptable second half performance, Hughes tore strips off his team during a ferocious post-match dressing down.

And the Rovers boss even scrapped plans to give the players a few days off this week, ordering them in for extra training instead.

One senior player said: "That's the angriest I've ever seen the manager.

"He slaughtered us, and had every right to do after a performance like that."
