Terry bemoans booking

John Terry has admitted his disappointment in picking up a yellow card against Liverpool which will see him miss the second leg at Stamford Bridge.

Terry came in with a clumsy challenge on Jose Reina when the keeper had already won the ball and was subsequently booked by Danish referee Claus Bo Larsen.

The Blues defender will be a significant absentee in the return fixture as Guus Hiddink's side bid to defend a two-goal cushion.

Speaking after the game, Terry admitted to being upset by the referee's decision to award the yellow card for what he feels was a reasonable challenge.

Disappointed"I felt as though I went for the ball, that's all I ever do as a player," he told Sky Sports.

"I've spoke to Reina again and he said it wasnt a yellow card. He already knew I was on a yellow card and he was honest with me.

"It reminds of when Xabi Alonso was booked in a similar situation with Eidur Gudjohnsen a couple of years ago. He was crying after that game.

"I'm obviously very disappointed."
