Anton recovering from trial trauma

QPR boss Mark Hughes claims Anton Ferdinand has "reacted well" to the "traumatic experience" of his court appearance last week.

Football News: Anton Ferdinand, QPR

John Terry was found not guilty on Friday of a racially aggravated public order offence after a verbal exchange with Ferdinand during Chelsea's Premier League game at Loftus Road last year.

With proceedings in court coming to a close, QPR defender Ferdinand has now turned his attention back to football matters and is in Hughes' squad for their pre-season tour of Asia.

Ferdinand and Terry could still face disciplinary action from the Football Association for bringing the game into disrepute, with both admitting in court to having verbally abused each other several times.

Hughes, though, believes his 27-year-old defender has dealt with a testing experience admirably and is pleased to see him back out on a football field.

Speaking from Malaysian city Kota Kinablu, where QPR will play an exhibition game on Tuesday, Hughes said: "Anton gave his side of what happened in court and it was certainly a traumatic experience for him.

"So far he has reacted well and is committed to the Asian tour, where we have three friendly matches to play."
