I’ll never shake Terrys hand -Anton Ferdinand

Date published: September 17, 2012

ANTON FERDINAND will NEVER shake John Terry’s hand after their bitter feud erupted again.

QPR star Ferdinand snubbed the Chelsea skipper before yesterday’s Loftus Road draw.

The defender also blanked Ashley Cole, who spat over his shoulder as the Rangers player passed directly in front of him.

A source close to Ferdinand revealed: “Anton has been appalled at the behaviour of John Terry and Ashley Cole.

“He made his mind up some time ago that he wasn’t going to shake their hands.

“Anton will never shake JT’s hand.”

Rangers skipper Ji-Sung Park also snubbed Terry at the coin toss and at the pre-match ritual.

It was the first time Ferdinand and Terry had met on the pitch since the England centre-back’s race trial in July.

Terry was found not guilty of using a racial slur against the Rangers man in the corresponding fixture last October but remains the subject of an FA investigation over charges he denies.

Cole testified as a character witness for his England team-mate at the trial and both players were jeered at every touch of the ball and subjected to derogatory chants from Rangers fans.

Chelsea chief Roberto Di Matteo insisted they had done all they could to end the feud.

He declared: “We have done our part and if other people feel differently then that’s not our problem.”
