QPR rejected Chelsea ‘guard of honour’ proposal

QPR manager Mark Hughes snubbed a Premier League suggestion for his team to form a guard of honour for London rivals Chelsea on Sunday as an alternative to the cancelled pre-match handshake, he has revealed.
Hughes admitted his surprise at the guard of honour idea following Chelsea beating Barcelona over two legs to reach the Champions League final, saying: “They were looking for solutions for the game at the weekend and the Premier League were throwing things out there and said at one point that one alternative would be to form a guard of honour and clap Chelsea onto the pitch, and I’m thinking there is absolutely no chance of that happening.”
However the Premier League later denied the suggestion had been made, with a Premier League spokesman saying: “It was never under consideration. The board would never have suggested or agreed to it.”
