Doomed Derby could face staggering 39-point deduction across two seasons

Derby County could be docked a mammoth 39 points across just two Football League seasons after being placed into administration by chairman Mel Morris on Friday evening.

Although Wayne Rooney’s team may have given Stoke a much-needed boost with their victory in Saturday’s Championship at Pride Park on Saturday, those cheers will not last too long.

The Rams are set to be hit by a points deduction of 12 upon the appointment of an administrator, with a further nine point penalty for breaching the EFL’s financial regulations.

Although the deduction makes it difficult for the Rams to survive, it will not be their last. There will be further punishments during the 2021/22 campaign.

According to The Mirror, a further three points could be taken for non-payment of wages, but administration could make that rule redundant.

Derby could lose 15 points in their next division if they don’t comply with certain obligations.

Rooney told Sky Sports of Friday’s update: “I’ve spoken to (CEO) Stephen Pearce after it but initially had seen it on TV. I haven’t spoken with Mel. I’m sure he’s got other things on his mind.”
