Steve McClaren set to lose Derby role as club cut costs in administration

Steve McClaren is set to lose his role as a senior adviser at Derby County after the club entered administration last week.

Derby were deducted 12 points, sending them to the bottom of the Championship.

McClaren joined Derby last November to take on the advisor role and a position as the clubs Technical Director, but he was only hired on a consultancy basis.

As a result, McClaren is easy to take off the books for the administrators.

However, the former England manager won't be out of work for too long, with both Fifa and Uefa looking at bringing in the 60-year-old to join their 'think tanks', according to the Sun.

EFL Chairman Rick Parry has set out his recommendations to bridge the gap between the Premier League and the Championship.

Parry stated that Derby are "right in the middle" of profit and sustainability rules, which are "neither profitable nor sustainable."

The Chairman also added that the club's administration “illustrated the real challenges of the broken Championship financial model."

“Derby didn’t go into administration because of amortisation, no-one ever does, It’s cash that matters. Have a cash break-even so transfer fees spent and received go in as cash," Parry explained to the Telegraph.

Derby's administrator, Andrew Hosking, is hoping to tie up the club's finances for the rest of the year.

The Sun continue to explain that Hosking's could turn to MSD UK Holdings, who lent ex-owner Mel Morris £30million, for a short-term loan of £2-3million.
