JOHN Terry will go on trial at Westminster Magistrates' Court this morning accused of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand.
The Chelsea captain was charged with a racially-aggravated public order offence after allegedly shouting an offensive comment at Ferdinand during a Premier League match at Loftus Road on October 23 last year.
Terry, 31, faces a maximum fine of £2,500 if convicted, and is due in the dock from 10am.
He has denied any wrongdoing and hired QC George Carter-Stephenson to lead his defence.
