Ferdinands to support campaign

Published Add your comment

Rio and Anton Ferdinand are expected to wear 'Kick It Out' t-shirts ahead of matches this weekend, despite some players' misgivings over the anti-racism organisation's response to the John Terry case.

Kick It Out, part-funded by the FA, said they had been hamstrung by being forced to wait until the end of the disciplinary process before making their feelings public. Reading striker and BBC pundit Jason Roberts has become so frustrated that he will not wear one of the shirts promoting their week of action - a stance that earned a rebuke from Sir Alex Ferguson.

Anton Ferdinand, the QPR defender who was on the receiving end of Terry's racial abuse, is expected to wear the shirt, according to his manager, as is his brother Rio.
