Lowe accepts Redknapp ruling

Southampton chairman Rupert Lowe has accepted the Premier League’s decision to take no action against Portsmouth over the appointment of Harry Redknapp.

Lowe questioned Portsmouth’s conduct after Redknapp quit as Saints boss in December, claiming his position was untenable, after Pompey chief Milan Mandaric had made public his club’s interest in luring their former boss back to Fratton Park.

The Premier League launched an investigation and, following representations from both clubs, have now decided not to take any action against Pompey.

“It is the Premier League’s rule book so it is entirely a matter for them,” said Lowe. “All we can do is put our case and if they are happy with what has gone on then that is up to them.”
