Last quote by Cyrille Regis

We inspired the second and third generations. We early players were just the tip of the iceberg. That's why we are still talked about and written about. What stopped racism in my mind was that more and more teams soon had black players. If you have one in your side, it's hard to racially abuse the opposition's black players. That was a big factor, more and more black players getting into football.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Cyrille Regis came from an article called There were 5, 000 Leeds fans shouting Sieg Heil at us, hatred in their eyes’: “You'd hear that. You'd hear people saying that all sorts of people get abuse. But when it's about your skin, it's different to being ginger or fat. That argument doesn't stand up I'm afraid. Discrimination because of the colour of your skin has historical connotations as for centuries people felt superior to other people due only to the colour of their skin. The slave trade was based on such prejudices and so to suggest that redheads or overweight people have suffered the same is factually incorrect.”.
