Umbro are blanking Chelsea's England captain John Terry.

The Daily Express says England's kit sponsors are using a team picture with Steven Gerrard as national captain despite the fact Terry remains one of their most high-profile clients.

Umbro’s website was yesterday displaying the photograph – in which Terry is not even featured – on the day the Chelsea skipper learned he will face prosecution for allegedly making racial remarks to QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.

Terry has a long-standing association with Umbro, yet the image is from before the opening Euro 2012 qualifier with Bulgaria back in September 2010 when he was injured.

Gerrard – who is one of rival adidas’s biggest stars – wears the armband in his absence.

Terry is not even featured on the players’ profile pages on the site despite the fact Darren Bent, Andy Carroll, Michael Owen and Jordan Henderson are highlighted.
