West Brom boss Clarke delighted for goal scorer Long

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke was delighted for goal scorer Shane Long after victory over Chelsea.

Clarke paid tribute to Long after another fine performance following the death this week of his grandmother.

He displayed a T-shirt which said 'Rest In Peace Gran' after scoring his sixth goal of the campaign.

Clarke said: "I've run out of words to describe his performances this season.

"Shane produced another fantastic performance in what has been a difficult week for him.

"He wanted to play. He is going back to Ireland tonight to be with his family for the next two or three days."
