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.
