Rio Ferdinand has reignited the racism row in football after Ashley Cole was attacked on Twitter and called a 'choc ice' and the Manchester United defender appeared to endorse the comment.
The person wrote: "Looks like Ashley Cole's going to be their choc ice.
"Then again he's always been a sell out. Shame on him."
Ferdinand replied: "I hear you fella! "Choc ice is classic! hahahahahahha!!"
It has since been deleted.
The jibe comes a day after Chelsea skipper John Terry was found not guilty of racially abusing Ferdinand's brother Anton.
Terry's teammate Cole was a defence witness.
