T-Shirt Row Rumbles On!

T-Shirt Row Rumbles On!

The shenanigans relating to the t-shirt that Rio Ferdinand didn`t wear, on Saturday, continue to dominate the back pages of the tabloid press.

It would appear that Rio, wary of some kind of retribution from Sir Alex, is fearful he could be dropped from the Champions League fixture against Brag, on Tuesday night.

However, Rio does have growing support for his protest, it was noticeable yesterday that several players taking part in the QPR v Everton fixture decided not to wear them.

There`s also the support Rio is receiving from the PFA, with Clarke Carlisle remarking,

"We will monitor the situation and make sure Rio Ferdinand`s rights are not undermined."

"Everyone has a right to free speech - just like you can`t coerce anyone into shaking hands, you can`t make somebody wear a t-shirt - although I do personally believe that joining in with the campaign is the best way forward."


It makes you wonder where it`s all going to end, does it not!
