Malky Mackay has used a television interview to apologise for three offensive text messages he sent, but insisted he was "no racist" and "no homophobe".

The former Cardiff City manager and Iain Moody had been accused of sending "sexist, racist and homophobic" text messages during their time at the club.

Meanwhile, the chief executive of the League Managers Association, Richard Bevan, is facing calls to resign after his organisation apologised for the wording of a statement that appeared to defend the messages as "friendly banter".

Malky Mackay: 'There is no excuse' for offensive texts

Former Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay has said there is "no excuse" for the "completely unacceptable" text messages he is alleged to have sent.

He said he would "humbly" ask people to consider whether their phone could be scrutinised without revealing "a certain amount of embarrassing texts".

He added that while more than three offensive text messages may have been found on his phone, he only sent three of them himself.
