Cheslea captain John Terry has vowed to clear his name over allegations he racially abused Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand on Sunday.

The allegations are currently being assessed by police after a complaint from a member of the public but Terry has categorically denied using racist language towards the defender during Chelsea's 1-0 defeat at Loftus Road.

"I'll do whatever it takes to clear my name and I don't have anything to hide," Terry told the Daily Mail. "I'm not taking that level of abuse.

"Anton and I spoke for 10 minutes in the dressing room after the game and there is no issue between us. It's finished."

Videos were circulated online following Sunday's game, with some web site's claiming the footage shows Terry directing racist comments at his opponent.

The flash-point occurred at the end of an ill-tempered west London derby in which Chelsea's Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba were sent-off as a Heidar Helguson penalty gave QPR a first victory over their rivals in 16 years.

Ferdinand is due to discuss the incident with manager Neil Warnock on Tuesday lunchtime at QPR's Harlington training ground.

The allegations are currently being "assessed" by police after a member of public filed a complaint, officials confirmed Tuesday.

"We can confirm that police have been notified of an incident on Sunday 23 October involving alleged racial abuse. This is currently being assessed by officers from Hammersmith and Fulham," a Metropolitan police spokesman said.
