Investigation launched after Derby’s Richard Keogh has ‘scuffle’ with Nott’m Forest groundsman

An investigation has been launched after Derby County’s Richard Keogh had a ‘scuffle’ with a Nottingham Forest groundsman.

According to Sky Sports News and various reporters, the altercation left the player with noticeable scratch marks on his neck, and it hasn’t been said whether the groundsman was injured in the incident.

Keogh failed to make an appearance for the defeat which saw Forest comfortably win 3-0 in the second round tie at home.

The Irish international was on the substitutes bench and could be seen warming down on the pitch after the final whistle with the groundsteam clearing the surface and repairing damage from the game.

Sam Matterface said: “Appears to have been a fracas with some of the Derby players who were warming down on the City Ground pitch & members of the ground staff. Sub Richard Keogh came off swearing at the security and he wasn’t the only one. The words “who is that f#*ing bellend” bellowed. Things calmed down quickly as the Derby Boys went down the tunnel, but they were not happy. Rivalry.”

The members of the Forest staff made sure bloodied Keogh made his way back to the changing rooms.

The incident came as both teams managers were giving their post-match interviews by the side of the pitch as can be seen in the photo above.

Neither team has yet to comment on the situation, though it’s said both clubs are in discussions to try to establish what happened.
