The shadow sports minister has questioned how former Portsmouth owner Vladimir Antonov was allowed to take over the club as the spectre of administration looms again for the south-coast side.

Clive Efford MP says warnings about the London-based Russian businessman's bank by the Financial Services Authority were not heeded and he was given the go-ahead by the Football League.

Efford, Labour's spokesman on sport, said: "If these concerns about Antonov were there on the FSA website then why were these not taken up by the football authorities?"
