Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore believes the Football Association could have dealt with the John Terry racial abuse case more swiftly than they did.

The Chelsea captain has been handed a four-match ban and fined £220,000 by the FA after an independent regulatory commission found him guilty of using racist language towards Anton Ferdinand. The original incident occurred in a Premier League game at QPR on October 23 last year, meaning it took over 11 months for the case to reach its conclusion.

Scudamore told the Daily Telegraph: "It is very difficult, but my concern is the length of time that this takes because we have been sitting here, unable to move on and unable to get clarity. We have to work out a way of doing these things earlier."
