Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has claimed to have lost all respect for Liverpool's Luis Suarez.

Ferdinand refused to shake Suarez's hand prior to United's 2-1 Premier League win at Old Trafford. He took the decision as a direct consequence of Suarez opting not to shake Patrice Evra's hand as the players conducted their traditional pre-match greeting.

"I thought it was bad decision-making from their guy," Ferdinand told MUTV. "After seeing what I saw I decided not to shake his hand. I lost all respect for the guy after that."
