Lee Bowyer said he was unaware of Andrew Muir’s attendance at Charlton Athletic’s play-off tie tonight – with the Australian’s consortium appearing to be close to a takeover of the club.
Muir went into the club shop before kick-off and bought a scarf which he wore in the directors’ box.
But Bowyer, speaking after the 1-0 defeat to Shrewsbury Town, said: “I wasn’t aware [he was there]. I’ve got no idea and I have got no interest.
“I need to focus on tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday and then I’ll go from there.”
