The chairman of the Cardiff City Supporters' Trust has condemned alleged racist, homophobic and sexist comments made by former manager Malky Mackay.
Mackay is alleged to have exchanged a number of offensive text messages with Iain Moody during their time at the club. Moody has now resigned from his post as sporting director of Crystal Palace in the wake of the accusations.
In a statement today, Supporters' Trust chairman Tim Hartley said:
The Trust condemns without reservation any racist, homophobic and sexist comments whenever and wherever they are made.
We have spoken out against issues like homophobic chanting at football matches and in 2013 issued a statement on the subject. We are also organising a Trust five-a-side football tournament in October involving ethnic minority and faith groups to celebrate friendship through football.
We are not privilege to the details of the dossier concerning alleged comments made by our former manager Malky Mackay. The Football Association has been sent documents by the club and we await the outcome of any investigation.
It would be wrong of us to speculate further at this stage without any detailed information being made available.
