Burton boss Nigel Clough has paid tribute to ‘brilliant servant’ Damien McCrory as his seven-year stay draws to a close.

The 29-year-old full-back has not been offered a new deal at the Pirelli Stadium, but Clough is confident his services will be in demand.

He told the club’s official website: ‘He has been a brilliant servant for seven seasons, but with Colin Daniel coming in and Reece Hutchinson’s emergence, that is why he moves on.

‘He was a bit emotional after the game on Saturday, as you would expect after seven years.

He is one of the stalwarts who has been responsible for the team going up the leagues.

‘I don’t see any problem with him getting fixed up somewhere next season.

‘ Clough also thanked goalkeeper Harry Campbell, striker Will Miller and defender Kyle McFadzean who are also not being offered new deals following the Brewers’ ninth-place finish in League One.
