Delap is thrown by TV attention

Rory Delap
Rory Delap has started every Premier League game so far this season.

Stoke City midfielder Rory Delap insists that there is more to his game than just a long throw-in.

The 32-year-old's deadly weapon has contributed to three of Stoke's seven Premier League goals and he admits that it is all people are talking about.

Speaking to BBC Radio Stoke, Delap said: "I don't get asked about football any more, just the throw-ins.

"It doesn't annoy me but when Match of the Day measure my throw, it's bound to attract attention."

Delap joined Stoke in 2006 on a loan deal from Sunderland and despite breaking his leg on his debut, ironically against Sunderland, the Potters continued with the transfer and signed Delap on a permanent basis.

Stoke are currently second from bottom in the Premier League and next face a tough trip to joint leaders Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
