London -John Terry insists he should never have been given the booking that rules him out of Chelsea's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Liverpool.

Terry was booked in the second-half of Wednesday's 3-1 win at Anfield for a challenge on Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina and will be suspended for the return leg at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

But the Chelsea and England captain claimed that even Reina did not think his challenge warranted a yellow card from Danish referee Claus Bo Larsen.

"I felt as though I went for the ball, that's all I ever do as a player," Terry said.

"I've spoke to Reina again and he said it wasn't a yellow card. He already knew I was on a yellow card and he was honest with me.

"It reminds me of when Liverpool's Xabi Alonso was booked in a similar situation with Eidur Gudjohnsen (in the semi-finals) a couple of years ago. He was crying after that game. I'm obviously very disappointed."
