The Ferdinand brothers are gunning for Chelsea star Ashley Cole. The Daily Mail says Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand is ready to refuse to shake hands with Cole before Saturday's game against Chelsea at Loftus Road.

And in another twist, Ferdinand's older brother Rio is considering a similar snub to his former England team-mate when Manchester United face Chelsea on October 28.

The Ferdinands believe they were betrayed by Cole when he agreed to speak as a defence witness for John Terry in his successful court battle against the charge that he racially abused Anton last season.
