Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish refuses to accept the club are creating more problems by continuing to challenge the findings of an independent commission which found Luis Suarez guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra.

The club and the player reluctantly accepted the eight-match ban and £40,000 fine - meaning the striker was unavailable for the 3-0 defeat at Manchester City. However, Dalglish refused to back down in the long-running row over how the situation has been handled and claimed the 115-page report which damned Suarez's evidence failed to mention several salient facts.

He would not elaborate on what those where but said after both the club and the player issued statements: "I don't think we are digging a bigger hole - it is unfortunate we cannot be more forthcoming. There are a lot of things we'd like to say and a lot of things we could say but we don't want to get ourselves into trouble."
