Gillingham FC is racist?
Victimised Gillingham player Mark McCammon awarded £68,000
A black footballer has been awarded more than £68,000 after his dismissal by his club was ruled as unfair racial victimisation.
Mark McCammon, 33, said Gillingham FC refused him treatment for an injury, docked his wages and fined him for not turning up during heavy snow.
The striker claimed he and other black players at the club were treated differently from white players.
Club chairman Paul Scally said they might appeal against the verdict.
At the hearing, Mr McGammon said the club had tried to "frustrate him out" by refusing to pay private medical bills to help him regain his fitness following injury when he still had eight months left on his contract.
He said he was instead offered the choice of undergoing the same operation on the NHS rather than privately, which was "completely out of character" for a Football League club, he said.
Yep, he openly accused Hessenthaler of being racially intolerant at the tribunal

If that was a player managed by paul ince, the race issue wouldn't have been bought up.Maybe he was just over the hill and s hit
The fact that he was loaned out to Braintree and Lincoln suggests this.
