Former Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay has been accused of sending racist, homophobic and sexist texts to ex-Crystal Palace sporting director Iain Moody this week and it has cost him the chance of becoming the Eagles boss.

Yet Mackay has found himself a supporter in the shape of QPR’s Harry Redknapp, who has jumped to the defence of the Scot despite all the evidence being piled up against him.

This seems to be something of an ill-judged comment from Redknapp considering the severity of the claims being aimed at Mackay following a submitted dossier from Bluebirds owner Vincent Tan.

In it Tan has included apparent copies of text messages sent between the former Watford boss and Moody – who were both at the Cardiff City Stadium at the time – which are said to be derogatory towards women, gay people and those of a different race to the two white men.

As a result Mackay went from being the favourite to take over from Tony Pulis at Selhurst Park to not even being in the running and current Palace caretaker boss Keith Millen has said he is glad the scandal broke before the ex-Cardiff man was given the job.

“It’s a difficult one. It’s [text messages] a difficult thing to justify, you can’t be saying them sort of things, if they’re true. It will be difficult, but you don’t know in time,” Millen was quoted by the Guardian.
