Former Manchester United midfielder Quinton Fortune says he is not surprised Rio Ferdinand reacted the way he did to John Terry's four-match ban for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand given he was suspended for eight months when he missed a drugs test.

The Ferdinand brothers have released a statement drawing a line under the row, which culminated in them refusing to wear Kick it Out T-shirts at the weekend.

Speaking at a Kick it Out event at Old Trafford to highlight anti-Jewish issues in football, the former South African international said: "I can see their frustrations. We all know the progress that has been made over the last 20 years. But the current players can also see how stuff has been dealt with over the last few months."
