Savage slams 'fickle' Foxes fans

The 35-year-old enjoyed five productive years with the Foxes between 1997 and 2002, but his success during that spell appears to have been quickly forgotten. Savage was part of a squad which appeared in two League Cup finals and cemented itself as a Premier League force to be reckoned with. He believes he deserves greater respect for the role he played during a memorable era for the club - and has blasted those supporters who feel the need to jeer him. Savage said: "It's disappointing, but I don't really care. It just proves that some fans can be fickle. "I was one of their all-time best players and played in one of their best midfields ever. "Me, Muzzy (Izzet) and Neil Lennon were the best midfield the club has ever had. "When I went back to the Walkers Stadium, I got booed there as well. "All credit to the Derby fans who gave Steve Howard and Matt Oakley such a great reception. "They deserved it because they were great stalwarts for this club. "It just proves the difference between the two sets of fans."
