Caborn said the allegations made by Panorama damaged the integrity of football. The programme, titled ´Undercover: Football´s Dirty Secrets´, alleged Allardyce and his son Craig, a football agent, received illegal payments and also made accusations of wrongdoing by several other figures in the game.
The minister told PA Sport: "The integrity of sport needs to be upheld and there are proper rules for managers and agents. These allegations damage the integrity of football and need to be looked at properly. The programme alleged they had names of 18 managers who had received illegal payments, and I think they should give all their findings over to the Lord Stevens inquiry."
