The FA launched an investigation last Tuesday into claims that John Terry racially abused Ferdinand during the west London derby against Chelsea at Loftus Road.
The accusation, which Terry denies, has been the subject of media scrutiny all week and there will be no let-up in the interest surrounding the saga this week as the FA continue their investigation into what went on between the two defenders.
Despite the off-the-field interest in him, Ferdinand took to the field at Tottenham and received huge praise from Warnock even though his team went down 3-1 thanks to two goals from Gareth Bale and one from Rafael van der Vaart.
Regardless of how much attention the story gets in the media, Warnock insists Ferdinand's work, and that of his squad in general, will not suffer.
"Will it (the investigation) affect the team? Not at all," Warnock said.
"I don't think it affected Anton. He was absolutely magnificent.
"It doesn't affect us at all. We have moved on already. It's not our problem.
"I don't see a timeframe for it all really. I have a day off. I am going to go in the park and have a ride on my bike.
"I won't be thinking of anything but the deer."
Warnock has backed the defender, who he signed from Sunderland this summer, to come through the crisis and even go on to represent England - a move that could ironically see him play alongside Terry.
"I don't think Anton has put a foot wrong since he came here," Warnock said.
"He definitely has the potential to play at the top level and England.
"He is such a young lad. He has made a few mistakes in his life.
"He started thinking he was a Franz Beckenbauer at times, but he is defending now and that's what you want from your centre halves.
"It was a great performance from him. I thought he was man of the match."
Bale opened the scoring in the 20th minute at White Hart Lane on Sunday with a sweet drive, before Rafael van der Vaart scored his fourth goal in three games.
Jay Bothroyd pulled one back for Rangers before Bale clipped a wonderful curling effort past Paddy Kenny to put the result beyond doubt.
Tottenham are now unbeaten in seven and will remain level on points with fourth-placed Newcastle if the Magpies lose at Stoke tonight.
Manager Harry Redknapp was happy with his team's performance, but refused to get carried away with their excellent recent run,
"In the first half we were fantastic," he said.
"The way that we shifted the ball around, the movement was great, but it's a long season, I don't look at the league table that much at the moment.
"I said don't write Arsenal off a few weeks ago and they had an amazing game against Chelsea."
