The head of European football's anti-racism group has urged the Football Association to charge Liverpool with bringing the game into disrepute over their response to Luis Suarez's eight-match ban.

Piara Powar, executive director of European football's anti-discrimination body FARE, said Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish's comments had been "undignified" and that their reaction had damaged the club's brand across the world. Suarez is not appealing against the ban imposed for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.

Powar said: "This is a lack of respect for the governing body by Liverpool and the FA should charge Liverpool FC and Kenny Dalglish."
