Ex-England Under-21s star charged by FA for ‘racially abusing’ OWN team-mate



JACK SIMPSON has been charged by the FA for racially abusing a team-mate during pre-season.

Simpson had his Cardiff contract ripped up in August with the club issuing a blunt 16-word statement.

The Bluebirds announced on their official website: “We can confirm that Jack Simpson has today left Cardiff City Football Club by mutual consent.”

But the FA has now stated that the centre-back has been charged with an “aggravated breach” of rules relating to misconduct and abusive language towards “race and/or colour”.

The ex-England Under-21 international was allegedly involved in an incident that took place in July during Cardiff’s pre-season tour in Portugal.


The 26-year-old is alleged to have used “abusive and/or insulting and/or improper” language towards a team-mate.

The ex-Rangers player has until Tuesday, 10 October to issue a response.

The FA issued the following statement on Twitter: “Jack Simpson, a former Cardiff City player, has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3 for misconduct that took place on their pre-season tour to Portugal in July 2023.

“It’s alleged that the defender’s language towards a teammate was abusive and/or insulting and/or improper contrary to FA Rule E3.1.

“It’s further alleged that this constitutes an “aggravated breach”, which is defined in FA Rule E3.2, as it included a reference – whether express or implied – to race and/or colour.

“Jack Simpson has until Tuesday 10 October 2023 to provide a response.”

Simpson joined Cardiff last year following a brief spell at Rangers and amassed a total of 23 appearances.


The defender only played once on international level for England’s Under-21 side in a friendly against Denmark back in 2018.
