London - Anton Ferdinand has joined older brother Rio in refusing to wear a T-shirt to support an anti-discrimination campaign, in a perceived protest at the impotence of organisations during recent racism cases in English football.

The younger Ferdinand was at the centre of the most high-profile incident in the past year when he was abused by John Terry during an English Premier League match last October.

Terry was banned for four matches and fined, but many players feel the punishment was too lenient, as with other sanctions related to recent incidents of racism.

Anton Ferdinand declined to wear a T-shirt promoting the Kick It Out campaign before Sunday's Premier League match between Queens Park Rangers and Everton. Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand did the same on Saturday, angering manager Alex Ferguson.
