ANTON Ferdinand is set to snub John Terry's handshake before tomorrow's FA Cup clash with Chelsea.
The QPR defender has spoken to boss Mark Hughes and chairman Tony Fernandes about the issue and it is understood there is no pressure on him from his bosses to perform the customary gesture ahead of the explosive west London derby at Loftus Road.
However, Ferdinand has told pals he won't shake the Chelsea and England captain's hand before the fourth round tie.
It is the first time the players have faced each other since Terry was accused of racially abusing the Rangers centre-back during the 1-0 win over the Blues back in October.
The 31-year-old was later charged and is due to appear at West London Magistrates' Court next week. Terry denies the charge.
The two clubs have appealed for calm ahead of the game, and Rangers issued another statement yesterday warning fans about their behaviour.
