Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish insists the club "will not tolerate" racism and discrimination in football.

The Reds have come in for criticism in recent weeks for the way they handled Luis Suarez's unsuccessful defence against allegations he racially abused Manchester United's Patrice Evra. There was also an incident in their FA Cup victory at home to Oldham when visiting defender Tom Adeyemi was allegedly racially abused by a fan, for which a man has since been arrested.

"Whatever the outcome of that investigation we are deeply sorry for what happened," Dalglish wrote in his programme notes for Saturday's match at home to Stoke. "We do not want and will not tolerate racism or discrimination anywhere near football and certainly not anywhere near this football club."
