Football Clubs Raided

Newcastle United, Portsmouth and Glasgow Rangers have been raided by police as part of an investigation into alleged corruption.

The police say that the operation is not connected to Lord Stevens' ongoing Quest inquiry into the Premiership and was "totally independent". As Portsmouth and Newcastle were two of the five clubs named in Lord Stevens' final report I wonder if it is totally unconnected.

A City of London Police spokesman said: "We can confirm that search warrants were served at three football clubs and the homes of two individuals in connection with corruption in football and its impact on owners and shareholders."
