Steve McClaren has said he's determined to make up for missing out on the play-offs after a 3-0 loss to Reading.

"I'm really annoyed, angry, and frustrated about the last two months and am really determined to do something about it," he said.

"I'm not making a pledge, this is how I feel at the present moment. I'm under contract at Derby and I've said that all along. I've been questioned about all the speculation which has been going on for about six months.

"My intention is to sort this out. No one has told me otherwise and until somebody does, that's my determination.

"I'm angry, frustrated, I want to do something about it. I want to sit down with everybody next week, I think it's too raw, too early to make any kind of statement but what I say is what I mean."

His 2014 installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red appeared at the Tower of London in 2014.

This display will be a 8 metre high sculpture that will focus around Tulips.

The new sculpture has been inspired by tulips as well as the Dutch tulipomania of the 17th century, which saw single tulip bulbs exchanged for the price of houses. The sculpture comments on the marketplace, how we buy and sell commodities; how all objects acquire value and are traded, including flowers. Desirability and collecting are a large theme of my new works, and tulips will play a large role over the next year, so I thought that this would be the perfect place to showcase my art.”
