West Brom boss Clarke raps Chiles for Odemwingie taunt

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke has slammed TV presenter Adrian Chiles after he made a jibe at the expense of Peter Odemwingie at the club's annual awards evening.

Chiles, a fervent Baggies fan, was hosting the event on Sunday evening when he made a foul-mouthed aside about the forward.

Clarke was clearly unimpressed by Chiles' conduct.

"I thought it was out of order," he said. "It was just a ridiculous comment to make. It was a stupid comment and it was out of place. It was a West Bromwich Albion awards night and there was no place for that kind of comment.

"I protect my players fiercely and I didn't like it.

"It was a throw away line from someone who should know better."
