Former Toon Boss Hits Out At FA

Kenny Dalglish has accused the Football Association of not setting a good example in appealing against Wayne Rooney's three-match international ban.

The former Toon manager is deeply unhappy at the treatment of one of his Liverpool players, Luis Suarez (pictured right), both on and off the pitch.

Liverpool's Uruguay international, already facing a racism charge dating back to October, has now been charged with misconduct after allegedly making an obscene gesture to fans following the 1-0 defeat at Fulham on Monday.

And Dalglish believes the FA should look at their own actions before tackling other issues.

Kenny Dalglish: "I find it a bit strange the FA are supposed to be setting an example for things yet they appeal against Wayne Rooney's three-match ban.

"I don't think that's a good example to set.

"The fact it has taken nine weeks to get a decision on one of the other charges is a bit of a joke as well.

"I don't think that has helped as well. The circus which is around about him has been caused mainly by that.

"That will be done sooner rather than later and we will move forward."
