Chelsea captain John Terry’s father called a member of the public a “f****** Irish prick” and a “f****** mongrel” during a row at Barking station, a court has heard.
Ted Terry, 59, was on Friday cleared of a separate matter. He had been accused of headbutting Amarjit Talafair following a dispute over a cigarette outside a City of London pub on March 22 last year.
But on Wednesday it emerged he had subsequently been fined for racial abuse in May last year.
The Old Bailey heard Terry had pleaded guilty on May 24 to the incident, which happened on May 12 after he missed a train.
He told station staff: “What do you mean it’s gone? I’ve got a ticket you f****** moron. How am I going to get home?”

Terry was fined £200 after pleading guilty to a racially aggravated public order offence.
He admitted saying “f****** Irish prick” but denied using the word “pikey”.
On Friday a jury found him not guilty of racist abuse in relation to the alleged incident in March, 2013.
