Premier League won't scrap handshakes for Chelsea, QPR clash: Just get on with it!

Premier League chief Peter Scudamore expects QPR players to shake hands with Chelsea next month.

Scudamore has told QPR to forget about scrapping the pre-match handshake before John Terry's next reunion with Anton Ferdinand.

Speaking at the Sport Industry Breakfast Club on Tuesday morning, Scudamore said: "It's not a handshake that says everybody loves everybody else.

"It's a handshake that says 'whatever c***'s gone on before now and whatever c*** will go on after this game is over, for the next 90 minutes, let's just play a game of football'.

"It's nothing more symbolic than that, which is why in our view, they should continue - period."
