QPR v Chelsea: Rangers issue reminder to fans about their behaviour at Saturday’s FA Cup clash at Loftus Road
QPR today issued a reminder to fans about their behaviour at Saturday’s FA Cup clash with Chelsea.
The match will be the first time Chelsea captain John Terry and Hoops defender Anton Ferdinand have faced each other since the Blues’ 1-0 defeat in October.
Terry has been charged with racially abusing Ferdinand during the game and will appear in court on February 1. He has denied the charge.
Bruce Buck, chairman of Chelsea, and Tony Fernandes, his Queens Park Rangers counterpart, released a joint statement to show a united front ahead of the tie and asked for the game to be a ”celebration of football”.
Chelsea and QPR warned supporters that ”abuse and discrimination has no place in football or society” and the latter have again reiterated that stance today.
