Birmingham boss Alex McLeish admits corruption probes have become "part of football life" after his club were engulfed in off-the-field controversy.

Co-owner David Sullivan and managing director Karren Brady were arrested by detectives investigating alleged corruption in English football on Wednesday and vehemently denied any wrongdoing on Thursday.

And McLeish has given his backing to his under-fire bosses saying: "It has not been that unusual over the last year or so. I think we have seen other incidents, shall we say. I am sure Karren and David will be okay out of this."
