ANTON FERDINAND THANKS QPR FANS FOR FANTASTIC SUPPORT AFTER TERRY RACISM ROW

                                     
Anton Ferdinand has thanked the 'fantastic support' he received from QPR fans during the recent high-profile league encounter with Chelsea, saying he could not have got through the day without them.
Ferdinand, who snubbed both Terry and Ashley Cole - who testified as a character witness for his England team-mate at the trial - at the pre-match handshake, expressed his gratitude for the backing he received from QPR fans during that game. 

The 27-year-old is also grateful for the support he has received from his club and team-mates, as well as the fans, adding:

Last month's meeting between the two clubs at Loftus Road was the first encounter between Ferdinand and John Terry on the pitch since the Chelsea captain was cleared by magistrates of racially abusing the Rangers defender in July.

Terry was cleared in July by Westminster Magistrates Court of uttering the words as an insult, but that did not prevent him being found guilty under FA rules last week.

The Chelsea captain who announced his retirement from international football, less than twenty four hours before the hearing, has always denied all charges against him and is still deciding whether to appeal that verdict and has indicated he would wait until he was in receipt of the written judgment before making that decision.
