Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish was delighted Luis Suarez was able to put some negative headlines behind him with the winner in Saturday's 1-0 victory at home to QPR.

The Uruguay international scored his first Barclays Premier League goal since October 1 with an unmarked header five yards out to end a run of four successive draws at Anfield.

Suarez has been in the news for all the wrong reasons recently with a misconduct charge and an ongoing racism-related hanging over him, but Dalglish said: "The headlines don't matter - but they will be nice headlines tomorrow. He scored with a header which doesn't happen very often and he played really well. It was well deserved and well taken."
