Steve Bruce has rubbished reports suggesting he had a number of arguments with the board of Birmingham City. 'I suppose with a manager who gets relegated that kind of thing is always going to be there.

The situation for Kelly remains the same, he will need to leave if he wants to play regular first team football.
