Stoke midfielder Delap admits being happy with throw-in celebrity

Stoke City midfielder Rory Delap confesses he enjoys the attention he receives thanks to his scud throw-ins.

The Potters have scored seven goals so far this season courtesy of the chuck from hell.

Delap admitted: "It's quite funny how angry people can get at someone who throws a ball!

"To be honest, the angry ones are funnier than most, with spit all over their faces.

"It's all quite a laugh playing away because you get a bit of banter from some fans - while some are there just to abuse.

"It's made me a bit more famous and the kids see a bit more of me in the papers. I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it."
