Watford manager Adrian Boothroyd has slammed the decision by the Asylum and Immigration Authorities to deport midfielder Al Bangura as "completely ludicrous".

The Coca-Cola Championship leaders have launched an appeal against the decision after the authorities denied the 19-year-old leave to stay in the United Kingdom and ordered a mandatory return to Sierra Leone, but Boothroyd is hopeful that Home Secretary Jacqui Smith will personally intervene and reverse the "ridiculous decision".

He told Sky Sports News: "After the immigration hearing I said that I had faith in British justice but obviously I was totally mistaken because it´s a completely ludicrous decision."
