FA board member hits back at claims of institutional racism

FA Board member Heather Rabbatts has dismissed claims from the Society of Black Lawyers (SBL) chairman Peter Herbert that the FA is "institutionally racist," reports Sky Sports. Herbert is unhappy with the way in which Chelsea and the FA has dealt with incidents involving John Terry and referee Mark Clattenburg.

Rabbatts, a former deputy chairwoman at Millwall, said she is "really shocked" by what she says are "wholly inappropriate, ill-informed and unhelpful" comments from Herbert.
