Rupert Lowe says he will also be asking the Premier League to look at what the Southampton chairman suspects is a ‘breach of rules’.

He said in a club statement on the official site: ‘I find it extraordinary that Officials of Portsmouth Football Club should have made some of the public statements that they did yesterday about a Southampton Football Club employee particularly as I have had no formal conclusion to our discussions. I will be asking the Premier League to see if any breach of Rules has taken place. As far as I am concerned even if there has not been a breach of Rules there has been a breach of courtesy and basic good manners.’

Club Director Andrew Cowen said he was ‘Gobsmacked’ Now that is the sort of statement I like!

Lowe is expected to make further comments after today’s game.
