Kitson denied losing the alleged amount in bets.

He said: “The problem began in 1999 when I and lots of footballers fell victim to bad financial advice. “At the time the HMRC had no objection to the tax avoidance scheme we had signed up to – but they changed the rules and we lost a lot of money. “These tax schemes were complicated, so you trusted the advice you were given, but it turned out to be a very bad move.”
