Bournemouth fullback Clyne: I didn't intend to hurt Warnock

Bournemouth fullback Nathaniel Clyne insists he didn't seek to insult Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock when leaving Liverpool for Dean Court.

The 70-year-old Warnock branded Liverpool a 'disgrace' and said they lacked class, while he was unhappy not to receive a phone call from the player.

"My intention wasn't to hurt anyone. It's down to footballing reasons," said Clyne as he explained his decision at a Bournemouth press conference.

"Me and Neil Warnock have a good relationship.

"I enjoyed working with him at Crystal Palace and I have a lot of respect for the man."
