QPR players are discussing how to handle the pre-match handshakes with Chelsea tomorrow.

The Sun says QPR's stars will decide today whether to snub Chelsea duo John Terry and Ashley Cole.

The players are to hold a dressing room meeting at training to plan a strategy over the race row involving Anton Ferdinand and JT.

A Hoops source said: "There is a lot of support among the players to back Anton. Feelings are running very high."

Some QPR players do not have a problem with shaking Terry's hand.

But Ferdinand will not shake hands with Terry or Cole, who supported JT at his trial.
