Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has admitted he should have handled the Luis Suarez racism row in a better way.

The Uruguay international was banned for eight matches after being found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra in a match at Anfield in October. Between the offence being committed and the ban being imposed, Dalglish staunchly defended the striker as the whole club took a hugely defensive stance.

However, Dalglish has now recognised that the case could - and should - have been dealt with differently, and told ESPN prior to the FA Cup semi-final win over Everton: "It would be done completely differently if it ever happened again - and I hope it never does. I wouldn't say publicly what I would do differently but I know what I would do differently. I would address that."
