Hughes to consult squad over Terry handshake

by Setanta Staff , 26 April 2012 football news

Mark Hughes will hold a meeting with QPR's players on Friday morning to discuss whether to snub John Terry's handshake before Sunday's match against Chelsea.

Sunday's west London derby at Stamford Bridge is the first time that Anton Ferdinand and Terry have met in a Barclays Premier League game since the Chelsea captain was accused of racially abusing the QPR defender in October's reverse fixture.

Terry was charged with a racially-aggravated public order offence in December last year following the game, but the former England captain denies the charge and has vowed to fight "tooth and nail" to clear his name in his trial, which takes place on July 9.

Ferdinand is understood to be contemplating snubbing the 31-year-old's handshake prior to the game and QPR boss Hughes wants to know the plans of his centre-back, and the rest of the Rangers team before the game.

Press Association Sport understands that Hughes will announce whether his team's players will snub Terry's handshake at Friday afternoon's pre-match press conference following the meeting with his players at the club's training ground.
