Chelsea have confirmed they rejected a proposal for their players to wear T-shirts in support of captain John Terry.
Some of the Blues squad and staff had raised the prospect of donning T-shirts showing their backing for Terry, who has been charged with racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
A club spokesman said: "We were aware of the idea being discussed among some of the players and staff. The club fully supports John but did not think the wearing of T-shirts was an appropriate or helpful show of that support."
