Sam Allardyce today shot back at the BBC investigation that quoted three agents as saying the Bolton boss had accepted illegal bribes over the transfer of players to his club. "As a result of their greed, my good name has been tarnished by deceit and innuendo." Allardyce insisted that neither he nor his son Craig, who was also implicated in the investigation, had done anything wrong.
