Gillingham FC and the club's chairman Paul Scally say they will appeal against fines from the FA totalling £150,000 after sacking their striker Mark McCammon. It comes after an employment tribunal found the footballer was racially discriminated against when he was dismissed in 2011. Tom Savvides has the latest.
Gillingham chairman Paul Scally has told ITV Meridian he's furious after he and the club were fined for sacking their striker Mark McCammon. The penalties, totalling a hundred and fifty thousand pounds, have been imposed by the FA. It follows an employment tribunal ruling that the player was dismissed by the Gills unlawfully in 2011 in an act of racial discrimination.
Gillingham striker Mark McCammon won his employment tribunal against the club for racial discrimination. He says he hopes the victory means others won't suffer the same experience, and he now wants to put the matter behind him. The club says it is 'staggered' and is considering an appeal.
