Former England defender Sol Campbell calls for UEFA to issue points deductions for racism.

Former England international Sol Campbell has said that teams should lose points for racist behaviour from the crowd.

England Under-21 defender Danny Rose was the target of apparent racist abuse from Serbia fans earlier this week.

Campbell told BBC Radio 5 Live: "For me it was just disgusting, I really felt for him and I felt for the players out there because everyone concerned with England must have felt it.

"I think [UEFA should deduct] points and then after a while when you stop qualifying for these competitions I think people will start to wake up.

"I'd love UEFA or FIFA to do something about it but I honestly believe they're not going to do anything."

UEFA have charged both sides for improper conduct, and Serbia for alleged racist chanting from fans.
