McCarthy hits back at critics

Angry Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has slammed the critics who have rounded on him following his controversial squad selection at Manchester United.

Wolves lost 3-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night after McCarthy decided to rest every outfield player who had appeared in the previous weekend's 1-0 win over Tottenham.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was one high-profile dissenting voice but a bullish McCarthy is refusing to accept the criticism.

He said:"I have got more integrity and honesty in that little finger than most of those who are accusing me. Whoever it is, I am not bothered.

"I go through the season and I complain not one jot about anybody. I try my best not to complain, I try my best not to get involved in anyone else's politics or football club or anything like that and I am not going to get involved.

"It is laughable. I have had lots of messages of support, not because anyone thinks I need it because of the decisions that I made, but because of some of the ridiculous, scathing, outrageous comments that have been made about me and what I did."
