QPR defender Anton Ferdinand has received a torrent of Twitter abuse from John Terry supporters following guilty verdict.
Fans claimed he was a “liar” and “jealous” of the ex-England skipper.
Last night Ferdinand was forced to break his silence claiming that: “Footage don’t lie,” according to the Daily Star.
The taunts began shortly after Terry was found guilty at an FA hearing of using racist language against Ferdinand during QPR’s Premier League match with Chelsea last October and received a four match ban and £220,000 fine.
But despite Terry being found guilty, hundreds of fans took to the social networking site to lay into Ferdinand.
@aidanhughes19, said: “you destroyed the career of one of England’s greatest defenders, your just jealous he’s better than you and always will be.”
@Magpie5Toz said: “cheers for costing England any hope of winning the world cup with your lies... Innocent in a court of law.”
@ayupduck said: “not guilty in a court of law the fa are no judges so yeah you are a lying grass.”
Ferdinand tweeted: “On a serious note people need 2 read the facts before they send stupid tweets 2 me with liar and grass in it footage don’t lie!”
QPR midfielder Joey Barton called the punishment a “farce” and Gary Lineker tweeted: “The FA find John Terry guilty and give him a four-match ban and 220K fine. Just one game more than a regular red card?”
