Bolton boss Gary Megson has denied unsettling James Morrison at his former club West Brom. Megson was disappointed that his West Brom counterpart Tony Mowbray declared that he was trying to disrupt his 22-year-old midfielder by going public with his bid.
Bolton have now given up any chance of signing the player.
"There's a way of doing business, how it is supposed to be done, by the book then there is the reality," he told the Bolton News.
"We followed the protocol that was set when Abdoulaye Meite left this place for West Brom in the summer."
