Glen Johnson has labelled Paul McGrath as racist after the former Republic of Ireland defender hit out at the Liverpool right-back for wearing a t-shirt in support of Luis Suarez.
Johnson wore the t-shirt to give his backing to Suarez following his ban for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.
McGrath hit out at the behaviour, stating: "If I was in Glen Johnson’s position, I would have thrown the shirt to the floor."
Speaking in The Daily Mail, Glen Johnson hit out at McGrath's comments.
"The McGrath thing … that’s actually racist. Saying what he said is racist. He is only saying that to me because I was the only black lad wearing the T-shirt. He’s targeting me because of my colour," he said.
"Listen, I’m my own man. If I have something I want to say or do then I will do it. The reason I wore the T-shirt is because I know 100 per cent Luis Suarez is not racist. He is one of the lads in the team that I get on with best of all at the club."
