Man Utd defender Ferdinand furious over England snub

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is upset over his Euros snub.

Liverpool youngster Martin Kelly was chosen ahead of the veteran after Chelsea's Gary Cahill was ruled out of the England squad with a broken jaw.

Ferdinand's representative and long-standing friend Jamie Moralee said: "Lampard, Terry, Barry, Gerrard; all ageing but they go to the tournament.

"Why is Rio different?

"To treat a player that has captained and served his country 81 times (in this manner) is nothing short of disgraceful. Total lack of respect from Hodgson and the FA as far as I am concerned."
