London:

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish on Friday defended the club's actions in the wake of Luis Suarez's ban for racist abuse, insisting they had not "caused trouble."

Liverpool issued a strongly worded statement attacking the ruling on Tuesday while the club's players also released a statement of their own announcing they were firmly behind the Uruguayan.

Dalglish and Liverpool's players also wore t-shirts with images of Suarez on them ahead of Wednesday's draw with Wigan, a move that was criticised by anti-racism campaigners.

However Dalglish remained steadfast on Friday.

"The statement couldn't have caused anyone any trouble and I don't think the players have caused any trouble with the FA either by their statement or support by their T-shirts," said the Scot.

"If we are not in any trouble we will leave it at that before we do get in any trouble."

Dalglish meanwhile said Suarez had been moved by the support from the club and his team-mates.

"He's been quite emotional and very grateful," added Dalglish.

"I don't think it is ever a disappointment when the people you work for give you their undivided support and I think that is the least he deserves."

Liverpool will only decide whether to appeal the ruling once they have received the full written verdict of the disciplinary panel.

"Most of the people have had their say, we've had our say but we will wait for the judgement and take it from there - but it won't be tomorrow," he said.
