Sunderland boss Bruce admits players bust-up: But not with Richardson

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce admits he's steamed into his players over their poor run.

The Mackems are in a relegation battle after picking up just eight points from the last 42.

He denied falling out with Kieran Richardson after the defeat at Everton but admitted: "I had a bust-up with a few of them but Kieran wasn't involved.

"There were a few I had a fall-out with and rightly so. You have to be a big player to play here and handle the expectation.

"It's gone pear-shaped. We've been all over the place and not to win in 10 is an horrific run."
