Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam says Luis Suarez is handling his race storm well.

Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam says Luis Suarez is handling his race storm well.

Ever since Manchester United full back Patrice Evra made allegations that he was racially abused by the Uruguayan back in mid-October the striker has rarely been out of the spotlight.

Adam praised the way the striker is dealing with the situation.

"You saw how he coped with it. That is the way it is," said the Scotland midfielder. "He is a top player and you don't get voted for the Ballon D'or if you are a bad player.

"He is very exciting player and is a good character to have in the dressing room and we are glad he is at Liverpool and nowhere else.

"We want to just talk about the game because that is the important thing and everything else is something you deal with.

"As a group of players we are fully in support of Luis, have made the statement and everyone knows how we feel. That is what we discussed and that is the way we will go from now on."
