Who wrote the #LMA statement???
The former Cardiff City manager and ex-head of recruitment Iain Moody had been accused of sending "sexist, racist and homophobic" text messages during their time at Cardiff.
But a statement on behalf of Malky Mackay issued by the League Managers' Association has since been criticised by a number of parties including an anti-racism group.
Former Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay has vowed to clear his name following allegations that he and former recruitment chief Iain Moody sent 'racist and homophobic' text messages to each other during their time at Cardiff City.
This evening, the League Managers Association released a statement apologising on Mackay's behalf saying he 'sent a couple of one line texts that were...very regrettable and disrespectful of other cultures.'
It went on to say that those messages were sent in private during a time when Malky felt 'under great pressure' and was 'letting of steam to a friend during some friendly text message banter.'
Mackay also hit out at the timing of the release of the dossier as it was widely reported he was due to be offered the role of Crystal Palace manager.
Furthermore, the 42-year-old insists he is not responsible for sending any racist or homophobic messages:
– League Managers Association
It has never been alleged that he wrote any homophobic or sexist messages and he has confirmed that he did not do so. Further, there are incorrect and damaging suggestions that he sent a whole host of offensive and unpleasant messages that are simply not true and which give a grossly distorted and unfair view of Malky's involvement in this matter. Malky looks forward to matters being put straight in due course, following any investigation of this matter."
The Football Association has confirmed it is investigating a dossier of alleged racist, sexist and homophobic text messages sent by football manager Malky Mackay.

Former Cardiff City Manager Malky Mackay and his recruitment chief Iain Moody are at the centre of a storm over allegations in a national newspaper of racist, sexist and homophobic text messages during their time at the club.
Today, Moody resigned from his current job as sporting director of Crystal Palace. Malky Mackay was a front runner to become manager there. But that's now been ruled out.
Meanwhile, the Football Association has confirmed it has received a detailed dossier of information from Cardiff City. Nick Hartley reports.
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.

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.
Former Cardiff City recruitment manager Iain Moody has resigned from his post at Crystal Palace. The club has confirmed he has left his role as sporting director with immediate effect.
Cardiff City has sent a dossier to the Football Association detailing a number of issues relating to Malky Mackay and Iain Moody while they were at the club.
It's understood the dossier was filed over a week ago and the FA has now confirmed it has received the document.
Mackay was sacked by Cardiff owner Vincent Tan in December last year, just a few months after the Bluebirds were promoted to the Premier League.
The Scot launched a £7.5million legal claim against Tan for compensation and wrongful dismissal after his sacking, but suddenly dropped the case in May and issued an apology to the Malaysian businessman.
Cardiff City has so far declined to make any public comment on the dossier.
