'YOU ARE AN IDIOT, KLOPP' You're an idiot, Jurg.

Byline: IAN BAKER

CONTROVERSIAL West Brom star James McClean has branded Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp an "idiot" for his exuberant reaction to Sunday's 2-2 draw at Anfield.

After a last-minute Liverpool equaliser Klopp, who refused to shake hands with Baggies boss Tony Pulis, led his players onto the pitch to salute the fans. But McClean blasted: "I have got respect for the man for what he did at Dortmund but, if I am being honest, I think he is a bit of an idiot."

And about his refusal to shake hands with Pulis, McClean said: "You can't act that way. Win or lose you have to be respectful."

Klopp admitted that he had lost his rag during a bad-tempered encounter.

The German, explaining why he did not embrace Pulis at the end, said: "We had words and sometimes it takes more than a few seconds to cool down. Usually I shake hands. It was not a friendly game."
