Clinton Morrison delivers passionate rant on Super League and racism

EXCELLENT STUFF from the former Irish international.

While the talk of a European Super League continues to die down, it was still the main subject of discussion on Sky Sports this week.

Gary Neville referred to it as "attempted murder" on football as we know it, while every Premier League manager was asked for their opinion on it in the lead up to this game week.

Former Ireland striker Clinton Morrison pointed out the hypocrisy of this in a passionate rant, where he asked why the same energy is not maintained when players are being racially abused after every game.

Speaking on Sky Sports over the weekend, he said: "You see all the energy that I've seen from the people at UEFA and FIFA tackling this European Super League and everyone else talking about it. People from government getting involved.

"Get involved in this to tackle racism and online abuse, because you show all this energy when it comes to money and stuff like that."

"The European Super League is nowhere near as big as racism. So show that energy which everyone did in stopping that, to stop racism.

"Everyone will be a lot happier because that is one thing that burns me massively."

Morrison said that so many people have energy for the Super League, which saw football fans from across the continent come together, but he pleaded: "show that for racism and online abuse, please."

This weekend will see "English football unite" for a social media boycott, in an attempt to bring awareness to the volume of racist abuse received by players.
