No t-shirt for Ferdinand - Hughes

Published Add your comment

QPR boss Mark Hughes expects defender Anton Ferdinand to continue his boycott of the Kick it Out t-shirt ahead of his side's game at Arsenal.

Ferdinand found himself at the centre of a racism storm a year ago, a situation that was only concluded recently when John Terry was found guilty of racially abusing the QPR defender by the Football Association. The former England skipper subsequently decided not to challenge the fine and ban he was awarded by the FA.

The 27-year-old Ferdinand was one of a number of players to opt against wearing a Kick it Out T-shirt ahead of Premier League games last weekend as they feel the anti-racism organisation is not doing enough to tackle the problem.
