Mcclaren's Message

Middlesbrough boss Steve McClaren has sent a 'get well soon' message to Glenn Roeder on behalf of Middlesbrough Football Club.

Through the club's website he says: "I was shocked and saddened when I heard the news.

"Just a few hours earlier Glenn had been standing opposite me at the match and on the way back we had been reflecting on how he had conducted himself superbly during what had been a high pressure time for him.

"Football becomes merely a side issue when this kind of thing happens - it makes you realise what is important in life.

"Naturally, the thoughts of everyone at Middlesbrough Football Club go out to Glenn and his family, and we wish him a speedy and full recovery."
