Wolves boss McCarthy admits being wrong over Scharner's West Brom t-shirt

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."
