FOOTBALL TURNS A BLIND EYE TO RACISM - LES FERDINAND

Former England striker Les Ferdinand says that racism will continue to be a problem in football as long as the game's authorities do not impose deterrents for abuse by fans or players.

Speaking at the Black List Awards, the former QPR, Newcastle and Tottenham star says that the powers-that-be in the sport prefer to turn a blind eye to the problem, rather than confront the issue head-on.

Chelsea captain John Terry is facing a Football Association investigation into allegations he racially abused QPR's Anton Ferdinand, while the FA is also investigating claims by Manchester United defender Patrice Evra that Liverpool's Luis Suarez used racist language in the teams' match on 15 October.
