West Brom rule out reporting Birmingham firebrand Bowyer

West Bromwich Albion will not be pursuing action against Birmingham City midfielder Lee Bowyer for his verbal blast aimed at grandmother.

Bowyer was substituted in the 68th minute of West Bromwich's 3-1 win - having been booked for a lunging tackle on Gabriel Tamas. He responded to jeers from fans by lashing out at Albion season ticket-holder Sandra Cox.

A West Bromwich spokesman said: "The lady complained straight away, saying she had been verbally abused, but the clubs are also aware that Lee Bowyer made a complete and profusive apology.

"That is the end of the matter as far as West Brom are concerned."
