Mackay out of running for Palace job

Former Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay will not be appointed as the new manager of Crystal Palace after the Welsh club reported him to the FA over alleged misconduct, BBC Sport has reported.

According to the Daily Mail, the allegations are that he exchanged racist, sexist and homophobic text messages to his former head of recruitment at Cardiff, Iain Moody, who has since taken up a similar role at Palace, and has also been implicated by the Bluebirds in their complaint to the FA. The accusations are detailed in a document sent by Cardiff to the FA on Wednesday.


Mackay had been the heavy favourite to take over at Selhurst Park after the surprise departure of former boss Tony Pulis two days before the start of the new Premier League season. He was expected to be announced as early as the weekend, but these allegations have now ruled him out of the running, leaving former Tottenham Head Coach Tim Sherwood as the new favourite for the role.


After guiding the club to promotion from the Championship, Mackay left Cardiff in acrimonious circumstances in December 2013, having been involved in a public dispute with owner Vincent Tan, who accused him of overspending. He initially took legal action against Cardiff over his sacking, but later withdrew it.
