    BLUES boss Karren Brady has broken a two-year silence to label alleged corruption charges against the club as ‘ridiculous’.

    The Birmingham City managing director and co-owner David Sullivan have been told they will not face prosecution after the lengthy police probe into suspected tax irregularities.

    They had been arrested and quizzed by City of London Police as part of a wider investigation into alleged corruption in football.

    Yesterday a delighted Brady, 40, said: “Police have abandoned their ridiculous accusation that Birmingham City Football Club was guilty of something, though exactly what none of us were ever sure.

    “My reputation as a business woman has been on hold for two years and now I feel an overwhelming sense of relief that ordeal by innuendo is over.”

    Brady, married to the new Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido, also revealed she had been given the all-clear from doctors.

    The mum-of-two said: “The cloud over my health has been lifted. I was told by my specialist I was completely in the clear after brain surgery three years ago.”

    Last week Revenue and Customs Prosecutions Office made the decision not to prosecute after a review of the police and financial inquiry.

    The joint investigation had focused on allegations that payments were made to employees which were not declared to the tax authorities.
