Queens Park Rangers have denied reports that their 1967 League Cup-winning side have been called upon to give evidence in the John Terry racism enquiry.
According to this morning’s newspapers, erstwhile Rs stars such as Mark Lazarus, Mike Keen and the outspoken Rodney Marsh clearly heard the Chelsea captain calling Anton Ferdinand something totally unacceptable during Sunday’s west London derby at Loftus Road.
A QPR spokesman said: “There is no truth in these stories whatsoever.
“None of the 1967 League Cup-winning side have been called to give evidence or will be called to give evidence.
“To my knowledge, none of them were within even a fifty-mile radius of Mr Terry on Sunday afternoon. Some of them aren’t even alive.”
He added: “It must be a slow news day again.”
Meanwhile, bored workers across the country are reported to have turned to a colleague this morning and remarked that “The John Terry Racism Inquiry” would make quite a good name for a prog/math-rock band.
