Rams' Keith refutes accusations

Rams' Keith refutes accusations

Derbyshire police have confirmed that they are looking into allegations of irregular payments being made at the time of the takeover of Derby County.

There was allegedly a £375,000 commission paid when the Rams were taken over in 2003. The Guardian newspaper has apparently seen these documents and have said that the former director of football Murdo Mackay, who resigned last month, has made these allegations.

Mackay, the newspaper claims, alleges that himself Keith and Mackenzie privately agreed that they would receive payments of 125,00 out of 375,000 which was paid to Streamline management as a commission



Both Keith and Mackenzie deny recieving any monies, keith told the guardian "I categorically deny the receipt of secret profits," Keith said, referring to all these allegations. "This matter is in the hands of my lawyers. This is a key time for the club as it is in a period of transition and my focus is to ensure it is effected as smoothly as possible." Financial director mackenzie said to the Guardian that he had had these strong allegations made to him before. "I refuted it internally as well," he said. "I had thought this allegation had gone away but it obviously hasn't. I'm going to take legal advice."

With there being no resolution to the takeover imminent, it seems that this will just be another complication in the story of the Rams

Rams Held By Brewers

Derby County dominated possession but failed to find a way past a stubborn Burton Albion backline as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Pride Park. Tom Ince hit the side netting with the first chance of the match before Darren Bent somehow turned a misshit shot over the bar from inside the six yard area in the stroke of halftime. Jacob Butterfield`s shot was tipped over and David Nugent didn`t take advantage of a late chance as The Rams failed to find the breakthrough in their first ever competitiv
