Ferdinand snubs Terry handshake

Ferdinand snubs Terry handshake

QPR defender Anton Ferdinand snubbed Chelsea's John Terry and Ashley Cole at the pre-match handshake at Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash at Loftus Road.

It was the first time that Ferdinand and Terry have met on a football field since the England centre-back's race trial in July.

Terry was found not guilty of using a racial slur against Ferdinand in the corresponding fixture last October, but remains the subject of a Football Association investigation over charges that he denies.

The QPR defender rejected the offer of his two rivals' outstretched hands before Saturday's game.


No other QPR player appeared to ignore Terry or Cole, who testified as a character witness for his England team-mate at the trial.
