Wayne Rooney confirms plans to stay after Derby relegated as he vows to 'rebuild the club


Heading into the final few weeks of the season, Derby were left needing a miracle to acvoid the drop. And a dramatic day of Championship football on Easter Monday ultimately saw Derby succumb to relegation.

Derby were unable to beat QPR, but it was Reading’s incredible comeback against Swansea which sealed their fate. Swansea were 4-1 up heading into the final 30 minutes before Tom Ince brought Reading to within two.

Lucas Joao then gave the hosts a chance of picking up a draw minutes later before Tom McIntyre equalised with the final kick of the game in stoppage time. The result pushed Derby 10 points adrift of the relegation zone with just three games remaining.

They’ll now play in the third tier of English football for the first time since 1986. American businessman Chris Kirchner was named as the preferred bidder for Derby earlier this month and an offer had been accepted.
