Cellino: Ross showed no respect to me

Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has claimed he was forced into the sale of leading goalscorer Ross McCormack to Fulham because the Scotland international had "disrespected" him.

Fulham completed the deal for an undisclosed fee, understood to be £11million, for the Leeds captain late on Monday.

"I like to be in control of situations but it felt like he wasn't my player," said Cellino.

"I was disrespected, he was aggressive with me. He didn't turn up for the tour and all the time he wanted to go from here."
