Rio Ferdinand looks set to be left out of the Euro 2012 squad by new England manager Roy Hodgson, with Chelsea captain John Terry likely to be included.

The situation between the two - with Terry accused of racially abusing Ferdinand's brother Anton - is reported to have played a part in Hodgson's decision.

Kyle Walker is also likely to be ruled out of the squad through injury, while Peter Crouch and Micah Richards are reported omissions for the 23-man squad.

Elsewhere, Kenny Dalglish's future at Liverpool is said to be in doubt. The Reds manager met with club owners Fenway Sports Group on Monday in Boston.
