Allen leaves Cheltenham

Published Add your comment

Manager Martin Allen has left Cheltenham by mutual consent despite being formally cleared by the club of racial misconduct.

Allen was the subject of allegations he racially abused a nightclub bouncer in October and was subsequently placed on gardening leave by the Coca-Cola League Two club.

Allen strenuously denied the claims and Gloucestershire Police confirmed last month that no action would be taken in connection with the incident.

Cheltenham nevertheless commenced a detailed internal investigation into the claims and on Friday absolved the 44-year-old of his duties.
