Ferguson furious over Terry red card decision

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has has reacted furiously to the decision to rescind Chelsea skipper John Terry's red card. The England captain will now line out against United on Sunday.

Terry was given a straight red card for a foul on Manchester City's Brazilian striker Jo during last week's Premier League clash. But referee Mark Halsey has since come under fire because Terry wasn't the last defender.

Halsey has been banished to League Two by the Premier League head of referees, Keith Hackett, much to Ferguson's chagrin. "My information is that Hackett told Mark Halsey to rescind the red card and he would not do it. Now I understand that Halsey is being made to referee in the Second Division this weekend. If it had been a Manchester United player, Hackett would never have done this for us."

But before he can worry about Sunday's game, Ferguson will have to focus on tonight's Champions League game with Villarreal at Old Trafford. Elsewhere, Arsenal are in the Ukraine to take on Dynamo Kyiv.
