PFA chief Clarke Carlisle welcomes football racism report

PFA chairman Clarke Carlisle welcomes a House of Commons committee report into racism in British football, saying it's a "fantastic" breakthrough in the fight against racism.

Carlisle is pleased that voices from outside of football are getting involved and says the report gives football a point of reference and something to gauge progress against in the future.

"It's a powerful voice, and hopefully that will help," said the 32-year old York City defender: "I do believe that football as an industry is really on board with progressing in this area."
