Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is full of praise for Rio Ferdinand and brother Anton, the QPR defender, for their stand against racism.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is full of praise for Rio Ferdinand and brother Anton, the QPR defender, for their stand against racism.

The pair made a stand last weekend by refusing to wear the PFA ‘Kick It Out’ training tops, feeling not enough was being done.

This week, though, they praised the work of ‘Kick It Out’, while declaring more needs doing.

Ferguson said: “I think Rio and his brother Anton have done the right thing.

“That race issue has not completely gone away. But the awareness is getting stronger.”
