Steve Gibson (r): Will continue to bankroll Middlesbrough

The Teessiders' latest accounts show the club made a loss of £13.93million during the year ending June 2013, meaning Gibson and his ownership group are having to plough in more than £1million a month to support it.

However, chief executive Neil Bausor insists Boro are in a healthy position despite the drop in revenue they have suffered since relegation from the top flight in 2009.

He said: "Middlesbrough Football Club continues to hold the enviable position of being a club without any external debt and with a very stable ownership.

"Steve Gibson and the group continue to be fully committed to support our ambition to return to the Premier League.

"Balancing our ambition for the first team against a challenging environment of Financial Fair Play rules is not easy, but we remain determined to use our financial resources to the maximum effect."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
