Chelsea skipper Terry denies FA charge for racial abuse
The Blues defender was charged by the Football Association for alleged racist comments made towards Ferdinand in a match at Loftus Road in October last year despite being cleared of a racially aggravated public order offence by the Westminster Magistrates Court.
The FA decided to continue the inquiry by charging Terry but the former England skipper has vehemently denied any wrongdoing in the incident.
"John Terry has today [Friday 3 August 2012] denied an FA charge of using abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour, which included a reference to ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race, towards Queens Park Rangers' Anton Ferdinand," read an FA statement.
"The FA will make no further comment during this time."
