SRtRC Patron Chris Hughton sacked.
Show Racism the Red Card is reeling from the news that Chris Hughton has been sacked from his position as Manager of Newcastle United.
Chris has been one of the strongest backers of our campaign over many years now and has done a fantastic job at Newcastle United under very difficult circumstances.
Only last month Chris gave up his time to conduct an interview for our new educational film detailing his personal experiences and advising young people of the dangers of racism.
We believe this is an outrageous decision and yet another example of a Manager not being given enough time in the job.
Former Newcastle United defender Olivier Bernard branded the decision "a disgrace".
As Manager of Newcastle, he has always offered us his full support and the support of the players, Chris is a fantastic role model and a credit to the game.
We wish Chris all the best and hope to see him back in football and working with our campaign in the very near future.
