thumbnail Hello,

The Rs' experienced centre-back has hit out at the Blues' skipper for his attempts at trying to win a spot kick for his side in their fiery goalless draw at Loftus Road

Ryan Nelsen has criticised John Terry's attempt to go to ground in the box in an attempt to secure a penalty for Chelsea in their 0-0 draw with QPR.

Terry had claims for a first-half penalty turned down by referee Andre Marriner after coming into contact with Nelsen, but the New Zealand international insists not awarding a spot kick was correct.

"If you ask John, he just fell down," Nelsen told reporters. "He fell. I was holding him, of course, but he just fell down.

"He does it to everybody in their box. I said to him, ‘That was a bit ­embarrassing, John’, and he laughed when he ran off. He didn’t say anything – he was too embarrassed, I think!

"It happens all the time. You watch him fall – that’s life. Fortunately it didn’t work. The ref was smart enough to see it.

"He was nowhere near the ball, was never going to win it, so he just fell down. He was just trying to get a penalty and trying to get something for his team to win. I wouldn’t make anything out of it."
