McClaren 'never considered quitting'

England manager Steve McClaren has insisted that he never considered leaving his job, despite the "abuse" he claims he received from a "hateful mob" in Andorra.

The former Middlesbrough boss has come under fire for what has been widely seen as a lacklustre Euro 2008 qualifying campaign.

But McClaren says he is able to cope with such reactions.

He said "I have work to do and I'm not leaving until I've done it."
