Burton manager Nigel Clough has laughed off Albion chairman Ben Robinson's claim that his Championship club wanted to offer a trial to sprint legend Usain Bolt.

Robinson had suggested Burton would be interested in giving an opportunity to the eight-time Olympic gold medallist following his retirement from the track after the World Championships.

But Clough was quick to rule out that idea following Albion's 2-0 loss at Middlesbrough on Tuesday.

"That's the first I've heard of it. There is nothing in it as far as I am concerned," Clough said.

"Would I be interested? No. I'm interested in trying to get a win in Friday night, no distractions.

"It's a good job he (the chairman) doesn't pick the players then, isn't it?"
