Leading up to the game, Marcelo Bielsa's side had a one-goal advantage, with several Leeds United fans mocking Rams boss with a 'stop crying Frank Lampard' song, which was a reference to Spygate, as reported by BBC Sport.
Derby goalkeeping coach Given stated that given how big the game was, the players and staff didn't have to say much in regards what the Leeds fans were singing about them before the second leg.
On what was said before second leg in regards to Leeds signing and 7-1 aggregate score: "To be honest because the game is so big, you don't have to really speak much about in the sense of what Leeds fans are singing and what people are saying," Given told Off the Ball.
"We actually kept our heads down after the first leg and said 'we have to change the way we play, we have to do something different'.
"Bielsa's a fantastic manager. He's one of the cleverest guys in football and how his teams press with the ball is very difficult to play against. We felt we needed an extra man in midfield."
It was a remarkable game of football at Elland Road as Lampard's side scored four goals to book their place in the play-off final at Wembley.
When Leeds had won the first leg, many would have backed them to do the job in front of their own supporters and book themselves a Wembley trip.
But things went the other way for the Yorkshire outfit, who will now be preparing for another season in the second tier of English football.
As for Derby, they are one game away from making a return to the Premier League as Dean Smith's Aston Villa stand in their way of glory.
