An angry Gary Neville has hit back at a report suggesting he fell out with Roy Hodgson over the course of England's disastrous Euro 2016 campaign.

Neville left his role as an England coach along with Hodgson immediately after last Monday's humiliating 2-1 defeat against Iceland, which brought down the curtain on a woeful Euro 2016 campaign.

A report in the Observer claimed there was a "deterioration in the working relationship" between Hodgson and Neville, and also suggested there were "a number of disagreements" between the England coaching staff at Euro 2016.

It appeared on face value to be an effort by Neville to distance himself from the discredited Hodgson, but he was swift to dismiss the claims and demand an apology from the writer. 

The report has not been taken down by the newspaper's website, with Neville yet to make any further comment on whether the apology he has asked for has been forthcoming.
