The Football Association have no concerns that there are any question marks against Steve McClaren after the England manager´s name was dragged into the fall-out from the Lord Stevens inquiry.

Agent Barry Silkman, one of those named in Stevens´ report into Premier League transfers, queried whether Stevens was also suggesting he had doubts about McClaren as two of the transfers related to when he was Middlesbrough boss. Silkman played a role in the transfers of Yakubu and Fabio Rochemback to Boro while McClaren was in charge.

Reacting to the publication of Stevens´ report, Silkman raged: "If they come out and say I have done anything illegal and suggest I´ve paid a manager, the manager concerned has to be Steve McClaren, the England manager. So, if they are not suggesting that, what are they saying is illegal about the deal?"
