BBC Sport - Birmingham City: Rowett unaffected by Carson Yeung speculation

Rowett unaffected by Yeung rumours

Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett tells BBC WM that he is not worried by media speculation about former owner Carson Yeung's role with the club as it is "not something that has a major effect" on him.

The Football League has written to the club to seek clarification over jailed Hong Kong businessman Yeung's role, but Rowett is more concerned with maintaining Blues' rise up the Championship table.

"I'm like everybody, I read about it," he told BBC WM 95.6. "You'd rather it was something more settled in terms of the club's hierarchy.

"But it's not something that has a major effect on me on a day-to-day basis and, until it does, it's not worth me worrying about something I can't control. The only thing I'm thinking about is playing at Leeds on Saturday."
