Statement from Lions captain Danny

Following last night's Sky Sports News Special report, Millwall captain Danny Shittu has put out the following statement:

I am deeply saddened by the documentary on Sky Sports showing racism by the minority at matches including at Millwall FC. As the current Millwall captain, racism is something I do not stand for or condone. I am currently in talks with the club about any further measures we can take in dealing with and eradicating racism at matches.
I do not want the events shown yesterday to tarnish the hard work done by the club thus far and their efforts in tackling this issue.
Every player at all levels has the right to represent their club without being subjected to homophobic or racial taunts. I will do all I can to help eradicate racism at my club and in football.
