QPR boss Hughes rejects Chelsea guard of honour proposal

QPR boss Mark Hughes says there was no chance of them forming a guard of honour for Chelsea's players ahead of tomorrow's derby.

Prem bosses have been in discussions with QPR over how to diffuse the racism row between Terry and Rangers' Anton Ferdinand ahead of the potentially fiery West London derby.

The usual pre-match handshakes have been scrapped and Hughes revealed: "They were looking for solutions, with the Premier League throwing things out there and saying at one point an alternative would be to form a guard of honour and clap Chelsea on to the pitch.

"I was thinking: 'absolutely no chance of that.'"
