Dyke: Scudamore emails 'a matter for Premier League'

The chairman of the Football Association, Greg Dyke, has said the row over emails sent by the chief executive of the Premier League, Richard Scudamore is "a matter for the Premier League".

Mr Scudamore made controversial remarks about women in private emails which were leaked to the Sunday Mirror.

He has acknowledged the comments were "inappropriate" and apologised for "any offence caused".
