Wolves boss Mick McCarthy admits he was wrong to blast West Bromwich Albion midfielder Paul Scharner after their derby defeat.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy admits he was wrong to blast West Bromwich Albion midfielder Paul Scharner after their derby defeat.

McCarthy claimed Scharner was "taking the p***" after he held up his match shirt and displayed what was written underneath on his T-shirt in the closing stages of Albion's 2-0 win. Scharner has revealed he plans to use the t-shirt for charity.

McCarthy said: "I'm sorry I even got involved in that because Scharner played well.

"There was a lot made of it before I even knew what was on the shirt.

"Having found out there was a West Brom badge on it, I thought 'What the hell?' and it didn't bother me.

"People forget sometimes that I've been a player, and when someone does that to you when you're hurting, those are the kind of things that upset you."
