Dalglish defends Reds on racism

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has moved to defend his club's record on race relations and said: "We don't want racism anywhere near football and certainly not anywhere near this football club."

Reds striker Luis Suarez has begun serving an eight-match ban for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra and the club have apologised to Oldham defender Tom Adeyemi after he was apparently the subject of racist abuse from a supporter at Anfield during an FA Cup tie last Friday.

The club were criticised in some quarters for their staunch defence of Suarez, with Liverpool players wearing t-shirts in support of the Uruguayan as they warmed up to play Wigan before Christmas, just after the eight-match punishment had been handed down.
