Malky Mackay took the further step of apologising for his offensive text messages in a television interview this evening.
He admitted sending three messages, which he described as "completely unacceptable," but insisted he was "no racist" and "no homophobe".
But there is still no word from Richard Bevan, chief executive of the League Managers Association which was forced to apologise for the wording of a statement that appeared to defend the messages as "friendly banter".
