QPR defender Anton Ferdinand has spoken publicly for the first time since he found himself positioned at the centre of a race row and has referred to the events of the last week as "crazy".

Ferdinand was the subject of an alleged racial slur by Chelsea and England captain John Terry during a stormy game between the two sides last weekend.

Terry has denied any wrongdoing but the Football Association are investigating the claims while the Metropolitan Police are also involved after receiving an anonymous complaint.

Ferdinand is preferring to concentrate on football, with QPR heading to Tottenham this weekend, although he does concede recent days have been somewhat different.

"The last few days have been crazy," Ferdinand said in an interview with the Telegraph. "But I'm looking forward to Sunday's game and fully focused on football. Anyone who knows me will know that whatever's going on, football's always going to be my number one priority."
