Anton Ferdinand used Twitter to break his silence after John Terry was found guilty by the Football Association of using racist language towards him. Ferdinand hit out at abuse he claimed to have received on Twitter since Terry was handed a four-match ban and £220,000 fine by an independent Football Association panel over the pair's altercation almost a year ago.
The QPR defender tweeted: "On a serious note people need 2 read the facts before they send stupid tweets 2 me with liar and grass in it footage don't lie!"
Ferdinand's comment seemed to refer to the video footage that appeared to show Chelsea captain Terry using the words "f****** black c***" towards him during last October's west London derby at Loftus Road.
Terry was cleared in July by Westminster Magistrates Court of uttering the words as an insult, but that did not prevent him being found guilty under FA rules on Thursday.
