Disappointed for him. Sneaky media bastards
Yes and no.
AFAIK this was just part of a wider investigation into corruption in British football, which is a worthy cause. (Investigating it, not the corruption.)
And while you may claim the way he was caught was unfair, but let's remember that no-one forced him to be a corrupt cunt. This wasn't like the Eriksson case, who genuinely didn't do anything underhanded, he was just brash and boastful.
