Light for Terry among ban gloom

Published Add your comment

Captain John Terry has been given the all clear to celebrate lifting the Champions League trophy should Chelsea beat Bayern Munich on May 15, but there appears to be no reprieve for the Blues other suspended trio.

Centre-half Terry was shown a red card in the first half of the semi-final second leg against Barcelona in the Nou Camp when he kneed Alexis Sanchez in the back. UEFA confirmed while the banned skipper could not watch the game from the bench, he would be able to join in with any post-match celebrations and could receive a medal.

However, the Blues are set to also be without Ramires, Raul Meireles and Branislav Ivanovic, who will all serve a one-match suspension after picking up their third bookings in the competition in Tuesday night's tie, which ended 2-2 following a late goal from Fernando Torres as the Barclays Premier League club progressed 3-2 on aggregate.
