Wolves defender Roger Johnson has apologised for allegedly turning up for training under the influence of alcohol.

Less than 24 hours after his club's 5-0 humiliation at Fulham, Johnson was ordered to train with the development squad after interim manager Terry Connor became aware the player was under the influence of alcohol.

Johnson, who has been dropped from the starting line-up for the last two games under Connor, is set to face a heavy fine from Wolves for his breach of club discipline

The summer signing from Birmingham has now apologised to everyone at the club for his actions.

Apology

"My conduct and approach to training on Monday was below the high standard the club rightly needs and demands from me - and what I demand from myself."
