"It is different preparation in terms of the hour or so before kick-off. As a player you are getting ready and preparing to go and do your warm-up and then go and play the game," Rooney told RamsTV.

"There was a bit of dead time which for myself personally I just tried to use to relax and you're just waiting around for the game to start.

"I didn't want to give the players too much information as we had done all the preparation, so I tried to stay away from them for a bit. Saturday was different, but it was how I expected it."


Derby County is in the process of completing a takeover in ownership after which the club will be owned by a prominent member of the Abu Dhabi royal family.


Terry has made up his mind about the managerial role that he wants to pursue and is massively impressed by the work of his former teammate Frank Lampard, who was once the manager of Derby County and is currently managing the Premier League side Chelsea.
