The problem between Fergie and the BBC is nothing to do with his brother.

Going back to the "99 Questions" issue with Magnier & McManus, the BBC cottoned on to the fact that deals were done between United and players who were reprsented by Elite, the agency employing Fergie's son, Jason.

There have been a few questions asked over deals done and young players who found themselves leaving OT after refusing to accept Jason as their agent when Fergie suggested it.

Whether there was, or wasn't, any fire-less smoke isn't the issue here. It was poor judgment to have such close family links in deals that should have been "arms length" at best.

Going back to Martin Ferguson, hiring your brother as chief scout, isn't exactly going to keep off the suggestions of nepotism, is it?
