Jason Roberts admits he would shake John Terry's hand, but the Reading striker raised eyebrows on Thursday by refusing to say whether he thought the Chelsea skipper was a racist.

Luis Suarez was banned for eight matches last season and Terry has recently received a four-match suspension for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, although the former England defender was cleared of a similar charge in a criminal court this summer.

Ferdinand refused to shake Terry's hand when the two met in the latest west London derby, but Roberts said he would never do such a thing. "I would, yeah," Roberts said when asked whether he would shake Terry's hand.
