Sir Alex Ferguson's Liverpool criticism backed by Carragher

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was correct to criticise Liverpool's reaction to Luis Suarez's racism charge in his recently released memoir, according to Kop legend Jamie Carragher.

Suarez received an eight-match suspension from the Football Association in 2011 after being found guilty of racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra, but Liverpool continued to show support for their player by wearing t-shirts hinting he had been wronged.

It was a reaction that wrangled with Ferguson, who has since left his post with Manchester United, and the Scot was critical in his autobiography of the actions of Liverpool and Kenny Dalglish.

Carragher believes Ferguson had every right to highlight this incident as a poor showing by Liverpool, claiming the Old Trafford icon is justified in his opinion of the t-shirt debacle.

The former centre-back, who retired from Liverpool duty at the end of last season, also says Ferguson was correct in his assessment of Rafael Benitez's famous 'facts' rant, during an ongoing feud with Manchester United's recently retired boss.

"I’ve read [Ferguson's] book and it is excellent, as you would expect from its author and subject," Carragher wrote in the Daily Mail.

"Certain criticisms of Liverpool are justified, too, such as the barb about us wearing T-shirts to support Luis Suarez at Wigan and Benitez’s ill-advised ‘facts’ press conference in 2009."
