's post-match talk.

After

Derby County

suffered a 3-0 defeat from

Rotherham

, Waine Rooney criticized Rotherham board members and said:

"The one thing that Rotherham didn't show was class or respect from above. I think the chairman was a bit disrespectful.

"We are quick enough to have a go at fans for using (bad) language or being offensive on the side but you don't expect it from the chairman. I wouldn't expect it from our owners or our board.

He also mentioned a song singing and loud shouting after the Rotherham staff celebrated the win.

Stewart, Rotherham chairman, responded to such criticizes and said:

"I refute totally there was any bad language. I will not allow any bad language to come from any person who is sat in the boardroom seating area. I will not have it. I will not tolerate that.

He added:

"There was a song at the end that was just banter from one of the directors. It wasn't me singing.

 "It was only a song. There was no swearing. We were laughing.

This match was postponed once before and if the clubs had not accepted to hold the match on 3 February.

Stewart said:

"It was friendly banter mentioning April because had we not played on Wednesday night then the game would not have taken place until April.

"I know the Derby people didn't want to wait until April. The friendly banter was along the lines of, 'April, April, you should have gone to April...'
