Terry is not a racist - Lampard

Published Add your comment

Frank Lampard has launched a strong defence of England skipper and Chelsea club-mate John Terry and insisted: "He is not a racist."

Terry has been in the spotlight after he is alleged to have racially abused QPR defender Anton Ferdinand three weeks ago, an allegation which is now the subject of a Metropolitan Police investigation.

Lampard will lead his country against world champions Spain in Saturday evening's friendly at Wembley with Terry not under consideration to start the game for footballing reasons. When asked if Terry was a racist, Lampard said: "That's a ridiculous question. No. Absolutely not. Absolutely not."
