PA:Press Association4 He angered Derby fans when he left the club in the summer
Rowett doesn't appear deterred by the inevitable backlash he'll receive and insists he has no regrets in walking out in the summer.
He even joked that he is ready to rake in the profits after buying shares in an inflatables shop in Derby.
Rowett said: "I’m quite looking forward to it if I’m being perfectly honest because every second Derby fans sing abusive songs about me is another second or minute they are not singing songs supporting their own team.
“If they want to bring inflatables, which I’ve heard, it’s going to be really windy.
