Ceiling fan wiring and switches

I removed the old ceiling fan and there were three wires Black, RED, White in the ceiling box. Can the RED wire be caped as not to use it at either end of the wire run....ie: can I cap in ceiling and at wall switch in order to use just single pole.

You can cap off the unused wire.

Thank you....I did not want to connect Red to Blue. I just wanted to connect Black to Blue and Black .....White to White and the Ground to Ground. So this way I can use a single pole wall switch using only Black, White and Ground.
