Former Premier League striker Delroy Facey has been convicted of conspiring to bribe players in a lower league match-fixing plot.

Facey, 35, who played for Bolton Wanderers, West Bromwich Albion and Hull City, had denied being part of the conspiracy.

He claimed the businessmen who were apparently offering him up to £15,000 for his part in the plot were "class clowns" who he decided to "humour" and did not take seriously.
