Leeds United manager Brian McDermott reveals that he has received abusive phone calls from angry supporters.

Leeds United manager Brian McDermott has revealed that he has received a number of abusive phone calls from disgruntled fans.

The Championship outfit are currently dealing with financial issues due to the Football League's decision to block Massimo Cellino's takeover following a tax evasion conviction.

On the pitch, Leeds have lost six of their last seven games, which has sparked discontent among a number of supporters.

"I got some phone calls late at night recently and it's just not right," McDermott told BBC Radio Leeds. "There's a right and wrong and that is just wrong because I am digging in."

Leeds are currently 15th in the league table.
