Powar: Reds should be charged

Liverpool and manager Kenny Dalglish should be charged by the Football Association over their response to Luis Suarez's eight-match ban, the head of European football's anti-racism group has claimed.

Piara Powar, executive director of European football's anti-discrimination body FARE, said the FA should charge Liverpool with bringing the game into disrepute. Powar said Dalglish's comments had been "undignified" and their response had damaged the club's brand across the world.

Powar told Press Association Sport: "I think the FA should come back now and be very clear that Liverpool could be construed to have brought the game into disrepute by the way in which they have consistently undermined the judgement and by Kenny Dalglish's comments."
