Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre has insisted manager Kenny Dalglish was not "hung out to dry" over the Luis Suarez racism saga, despite admitting mistakes were made.

Dalglish found himself facing a tide of criticism as the Uruguayan striker attempted in vain to fight allegations that he had abused Manchester United defender Patrice Evra in October, and was ultimately hit with an eight-game ban. However, Ayre was adamant that the management team had dealt with the issue as a whole.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, he said: "The great thing about Liverpool Football Club, and particularly the great thing about the team we have running that football club together day to day, is we are all in it together."
