Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre admits striker Luis Suarez has become a target in the debate about diving but believes everyone has to be treated equally.

The Uruguay international found himself in the spotlight again when his theatrical fall in Sunday's goalless draw at Anfield had Stoke manager Tony Pulis calling for three-match bans for those who go to ground too easily.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has defended his player and Ayre believes it would be of greater benefit to consider a wider issue, saying: "I am not surprised by the reaction because we all feel he is a bit of target. Now everything Luis Suarez does is in the spotlight."
