The chairman of football's anti-racism body says he is "aware but not shocked" by allegations that Malky Mackay and Iain Moody sent offensive text messages during their time at Cardiff.
Lord Herman Ouseley said the FA should not hold back with any sanctions should the claims prove to be true.
These revelations are further confirmation of how football is tainted with racism, sexism, homophobia and anti-Semitism, and the culture which continues to exist throughout the game and in wider society as a whole. The reality is that these views are most dangerously held by those people in positions of power, and the football establishment knows and condones it.
