Mark Hughes admitted the pre-match handshake between QPR and Chelsea before Saturday's FA Cup clash may have been cancelled because more than one of his players were considering snubbing John Terry.

The Football Association gave the clubs permission not to undertake the usual handshake routine prior to the fourth-round tie at Loftus Road, which saw Chelsea progress 1-0 thanks to Juan Mata's 62-minute penalty.

Rangers boss Hughes revealed he held a meeting with his players on Friday night at which some of them suggested they would be prepared to join Ferdinand in snubbing Terry. He said: "There could well have been an issue but players make their own decisions."
