Brian O'Driscoll has been keen to avoid rekindling discussion about his Lions dropping by Warren Gatland ahead of this weekend's Ireland-Wales clash but the same cannot be said for much of the media.

As part of his media duties in the build-up, O'Driscoll was interviewed by Craig Doyle and BT Sport who promptly published a teaser of the chat, which will be shown later today, titled: "Brian O'Driscoll on Lions omission".

O'Driscoll was unamused, replying to both BT Sport and Craig Doyle: "Thanks for that. One question in an interview & you put it in the headline. Typical … unbelievably annoying headline. So annoyed with it. Who cares any more."

The video was quickly taken down.
