Kick It Out in blast at FA

Anti-racism campaigners have accused the English Football Association of damaging its own credibility and undermining its stance on discrimination after deciding not to charge former Cardiff boss Malky Mackay.

The English FA announced that neither the Scot nor the club's then head of recruitment Iain Moody would face disciplinary action over discriminatory text messages.

But a Kick it Out said: "Kick It Out is of the view that The FA has damaged its own credibility and anti-discrimination policies by taking the decision not to charge former Cardiff City and Wigan Athletic manager Malky Mackay and Iain Moody, a former employee of Cardiff and Crystal Palace, for alleged racist, anti-Semitic, sexist and homophobic comments."
