Tyson has scored three goals in six substitute appearances for the Rams so far this season, including the winner against Birmingham on Saturday, and is pushing hard for a starting spot.

The 30-year-old saw a loan move to Huddersfield blocked earlier this season and that has encouraged the former Nottingham Forest man that manager Nigel Clough has plans for him.

"There have been opportunities for me to go and play elsewhere," said Tyson, quoted in the Mirror.

"The club put a stop to that - the obvious reason being Saturday.

"The way he's been with me, keeping me in the squad and getting me involved in games, shows he still wants me around.

"I've had a slow start but hopefully I can pick it up and get a few starts."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
