Allardyce aloof at annual player awards

Sam Allardyce was a virtual outcast at last night's player awards ceremony, fuelling speculation that the 60-year-old is on his way out of the club at the end of the season.

Unusually for someone in his position, the current managerial incumbent was neither interviewed on stage nor asked to distribute any gongs at the club's annual bash, held this year at the glitzy London Hilton on Park Lane.

Allardyce's uncharacterically-reserved presence even prompted some supporters to enquire via official club channels on social media whether he had even been at the event at all - fears later dismissed by co-chairman David Gold.

Allardyce, whose current contract expires at the end of the current season is believed to have left the event long before its official end tonight. He has been in charge at the Boleyn Ground since the summer of 2011.
