George Graham, the former Arsenal manager, has lost his job as a football summariser on BBC Radio Five Live. Graham, sacked by Arsenal last February and banned for a year in July after being found guilty of misconduct by a Football Association disciplinary commission, has since been working in the media.

But two days after admitting in the Sun newspaper that he received pounds 140,500 in transfer monies, BBC Radio announced that Graham would not be working on the network again.

This comes a day after the FA and Premier League announ- ced he was unlikely to face further action over his admissions. Graham admitted receiving money, which he then paid to Arsenal, from an agent, Rune Hauge, after the transfers of John Jensen and Pal Lyderson to Highbury.
