LONDON (AP) Wigan was condemned by English football's anti-discrimination organization for hiring Malky Mackay as its manager on Wednesday while he is still under investigation for offensive comments.

Since August, the English Football Association has been looking into a dossier from Mackay's time as Cardiff manager, including text messages he acknowledged were "completely unacceptable, inappropriate."

Details of exchanges with a colleague, which the League Managers Association said were "disrespectful of other cultures," were leaked to the media as Mackay was on the verge of being hired by Crystal Palace.
