Frank Lampard's Derby County lost three matches by a combined 7-1 scoreline to Leeds this season.

That counted for nothing last night as the Rams beat Leeds 4-2 at Elland Road to book a place in the play-off final.

Lampard has been a figure of fun for Leeds fans since January since he reacted furiously to Marcelo Bielsa spying on his side.


Leeds fans sung a 'stop crying Frank Lampard' taunt during and after the Whites' 1-0 victory.

The last laugh was on Leeds and Lampard was quizzed about in a post game interview live on Sky Sports.

He emphatically responded: "A lot of people say we're crying about spygate. I've not thought about spygate for a long time.

"We've prepared and we've got a result. Thank you."

And with that he walked off, clearly satisfied with his evening's work and so he should be.
