Blackburn boss Allardyce in new dig at Trapattoni

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has taken a new swipe at Republic of Ireland coach Giovanni Trapattoni.

The pair rowed over Blackburn midfielder Steven Reid after Trap said his Irish career could be over following a series of injuries.

Trapattoni back-tracked but then left Reid out of the play-off ties with France.

Big Sam rapped: "Am I disappointed in Trapattoni? That's an understatement.

"He needs to watch the player. He could be a major asset for him and the country."
