Anton Ferdinand was spared having to shake John Terry's hand before QPR's FA Cup clash with Chelsea on Saturday afternoon.

The Football Association gave the clubs permission not to take part in the traditional pre-match handshake, amid uncertainty as to whether Rangers defender Ferdinand would snub Terry.

The Cup game was the first time the two sides had met since Terry was charged with racially abusing Ferdinand during October's Premier League game between the two. Terry has denied the offence and Ferdinand was reportedly agonising over whether or not to accept his hand.
