Premier League cancel handshake between Chelsea and QPR

The Premier League have cancelled the pre-match handshake between Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers because of the on-going legal situation between John Terry and Anton Ferdinand, Press Association has reported.



Following the match between the two sides in October, Chelsea captain Terry was charged with a racially-aggravated public order offence. Terry denies the charge. Ferdinand’s lawyers advised the QPR player not to shake Terry’s hand while after taking their own legal advice, the Premier League have decided to scrap the pre-match handshake altogether. The clubs met in the FA Cup in January and the pre-match handshake was cancelled then as well.


QPR won the first league meeting between the sides in a feisty encounter that saw two Chelsea players sent off before half-time. Jose Bosingwa was the first to see red for a professional foul in the 33rd minute, while Didier Drogba received his marching orders in the 41st minute for serious foul play. The R’s were already a goal up by the time Chelsea were reduced to nine men, a 10th minute Heidar Helguson penalty from a David Luiz foul enough for the victory.
