Charlie Adam took great pleasure in seeing Luis Suarez net the winner for Liverpool on Saturday, with the Reds midfielder claiming a goal was the least the endeavour of his teammate deserved.
The Reds ran out 1-0 winners at Anfield against Queens Park Rangers but, as has been the way at home this season, struggled to break down their lesser opponents.
Liverpool registered 15 shots on target, but Radek Cerny was able to repel the home side for much of the encounter.
Suarez, though, broke the deadlock shortly after half-time, as he rose highest in the QPR box to head home a cross from Adam for his fifth league goal of the season.
And, says Adam, Suarez's strike was just rewards for the amount of effort he puts in during every game he plays in the famous red jersey.
"It was good to see Luis on the scoresheet because the chances have been coming for him, but he's just not been able to get them into the back of the net," Adam explained.
"But like all top strikers, they always wait for their time, and Luis was the match winner.
"I'm delighted for him because he works ever so hard for the team - and his hard work paid off with another great goal.
"It's nice to get an assist, although maybe it was a bit of a swinger with the right-foot cross!
"It was a good way to win the match and it was important because we dominated throughout and we were delighted with the way we played."
