Setanta close to administration

The board of Irish sports broadcaster Setanta met yesterday, a person familiar with the situation said, following media reports the group was close to going into administration. <br /><br />Sources close to the Premier League said that the people running English football&rsquo;s top flight would be willing to see the broadcaster go under. The company, which could continue as a wholesaler of sports programmes, missed a &pound;3m payment to the Scottish Premier League last week.
