Former Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay watched Fulham’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of Blackburn Rovers at Craven Cottage this afternoon.

The Welshman was mired in scandal after racist, sexist and homophobic texts between him and the former Cardiff sporting director Iain Moody emerged earlier this year. Fulham are without a permanent manager after sacking Felix Magath following their dreadful start to the Championship season, which sees them bottom of the table without a win, and have placed under-21 coach Kit Symons in caretaker charge.
