Patrick Vieira believes points deductions and banning clubs from European competition is the only way to stamp out racist abuse in football.

Former Arsenal captain Vieira said he never experienced racism during his lengthy playing career in England, but was surprised to see the topic dominate the agenda once more after a number of high-profile incidents.

"If you really want to fight racism, if you really want to show to the world that football wants to fight against it, you will have to use a deduction of points against clubs or kick them out of competition," Vieira told The Times.
