The Professional Footballers' Association is expected to rule on Gordon Taylor's future as chief executive after a report by The Sun which claimed he has accrued a six-figure gambling debt.

A statement is expected today from the players' union clarifying his future after discussions between the 12-man PFA committee led by PFA chairman Clarke Carlisle.

The issue is particularly sensitive given the large PFA sanctions issued to players and club officials for breaching betting rules.

A senior PFA source told the Press Association that Taylor's job is not at risk following the newspaper's allegations.
