Mr Gillibrand denied that he or his friend were involved.

Lancashire Police today confirmed no further action will be taken against any party.

Moyes: 'I'll be more knowledgeable' after time at United

Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has said it was "unfortunate" he was not given more time at Old Trafford, but that he had learned some "invaluable lessons" during his tenure at the club.

Moyes was sacked in April when he was just 10 months into a six-year contract.

The 51-year-old said he had had some "very good" job offers since then, but may choose to take a break from working in football.

"But what I do know for sure is that I have moved on."

Statement: 'Manchester United glory under Glazer'

A statement regarding the death of Malcom Glazer has described the glory years under his tenure when the club won Premier League titles and the Champions League.

A statement released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers said: "In 2005, Glazer purchased Manchester United. Since then, the club captured five Premier League titles (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013), as well as the 2008 Champions League title."

But ownership of the club by the Glazer family was marked by controversy and significant opposition by fans.

Born in Rochester, New York as one of seven children, Mr Glazer took over the family watch-parts business at age 15 following the death of his father and then continued his foray into the professional world, investing in other businesses, the statement said.

A resident of Palm Beach, Florida, Glazer leaves behind his wife, Linda, six children and 14 grandchildren.
