Published Add your comment

On-loan Nottingham Forest midfielder James Coppinger has categorically denied being involved in horse race fixing.

Coppinger was one of nine people, including Ipswich striker Michael Chopra and jockey Andrew Heffernan, charged on Thursday in connection with race-fixing by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA).

But the 31-year-old, on loan at Forest from Doncaster, said in a statement on Forest's official website, www.nottinghamforest.co.uk: "I am here to state categorically that I have never been involved in any horse race fixing whatsoever."
