Former Derby County captain Richard Keogh has been removed from the club’s 2020 calendar after it was reprinted so they could erase the 33-year-old from it.

Keogh was sacked for gross misconduct by the Rams following a controversial car crash which led to Mason Bennett and Tom Lawrence pleading guilty to drink-driving.

Keogh was in the car at the time and suffered an injury which ruled him out for the rest of the current campaign but a month later he had his contract terminated for gross misconduct.

Bennett and Lawrence, who were fined and ordered to do community service, were controversially allowed to remain at the club.

Since Keogh’s sacking, the experience defender has vowed to appeal to the Football League but according to The Athletic, a recent move by the club suggests they are keen to erase any links between Keogh and the Rams.

The Athletic claims that editions of the 2020 calendar were reprinted to erase the picture of Keogh who featured in August. Instead, Graham Shinnie now features on the page in place of the Republic of Ireland international.

Keogh spent seven years at Pride Park after joining the club from Coventry City.

He made over 300 appearances for the Rams after becoming a first-choice centre back at the club until his dismissal two months ago.
