Former Manchester United and England captain Rio Ferdinand has questioned a managers' union statement which defended offensive text messages allegedly sent by Malky Mackay as "friendly text message banter."
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.
