Press reports highlight Rio's Twitter feed
The Mirror reports that Rio Ferdinand has expressed his frustration with the speed of the FA investigation into the alleged racist abuse from John Terry to his brother Anton Ferdninand.
Rio tweeted: "Powers that be do make stands on certain issues I see! #selective #onlysaying" in relation to the FA's appeal to FIFA to allow the England team to wear poppies on their kit to support the annual Royal British Legion appeal around Rememberance Sunday, for the game against Spain on Saturday.
Later Rio also highlighted the quick response to an incident of a player spitting at another professional saying, "Antolin Alcaraz of Wigan dealt with within 3days... #efficient"
Rio Ferdinand has been a big supporter of the Show Racism the Red Card campaign, appearing on several of our educational films, sharing his experiences and advice to young people and has attended educational events with us.
Ged Grebby, Chief Executive of Show Racism the Red Card said, "Rio has been a brilliant honorary patron for our campaign and is a member of our Hall of Fame for the work he has done with us. I can understand why he would be frustrated that this issue has not yet been resolved and hope that the FA can conclude their investigations in to this case and the Evra/Suarez case as soon as possible."
