Dons boss offered bung

19 Sep 2006 - 09:30:39

Aberdeen boss Jimmy Calderwood claims he was offered a bung during his summer transfer activity.

With a BBC Panorama programme set to cast new light on the murky side of the beautiful game, Calderwood has admitted that bungs are on offer.

He told the Daily Record: "I know bungs are part of our football because I was offered one during the summer.

"A Greek agent phoned about a player and later called back to say I'd be looked after if we proceeded with the deal.

"Needless to say, I didn't. When you decide to go down that route they've got you for life.

"It will be squeaky-bum time for a few managers because bungs do happen down south, but I have never heard of illegal payments being made up here."
