Stoke manager Tony Pulis believes Liverpool counterpart Kenny Dalglish was right to raise the Football Association's apparent double standards on disciplinary issues.

The Reds boss was unimpressed with the governing body successfully reducing Wayne Rooney's three-match ban - for a red card picked up in Euro 2012 qualifying - by one game. Dalglish, who admitted there was no point trying to appeal Jay Spearing's dismissal at Fulham on Monday, said it set a "bad example".

The Football Association pointed out their disciplinary procedures covering domestic football were different to those for UEFA, but Pulis said it will have planted seeds of doubt in the minds of many clubs, saying: "I totally agree with him (Dalglish)."
