Anton opts not to wear t-shirt
Anton Ferdinand and two of his QPR team-mates did not wear
t-shirts in support of the Kick It Out campaign ahead of their game
Ferdinand was the victim of racial abuse from Chelsea skipper
John Terry in a league match last October, with Terry accepting a
four-match suspension and ?220,000 fine relating to the incident
earlier this week.
The 27-year-old was joined in not wearing the t-shirt on Sunday
by Rangers team-mates Shaun Wright-Phillips and Junior Hoilett,
following the stance taken by Ferdinand’s brother Rio prior to
Manchester United’s game against Stoke on Saturday and by Reading
striker Jason Roberts.
Everton’s Nigeria international Victor Anichebe was another who
decided against showing support towards Kick It Out at Loftus Road,
along with team-mate Sylvain Distin.
