The agent of Charlie Adam has defended the underfire Liverpool midfielder.

Tottenham star Gareth Bale branded Adam "a bit of a coward" after the latest clash, but Adam's representative Kenny Moyes claims such talk is "outrageous".

Quoted in the Daily Star, Moyes said: "It doesn't warrant a reply because everyone knows Charlie is not that type of player. Everyone in football knows he has no malice or anything like that in him.

"For someone to have a go like that is outrageous. It was schoolboyish for them to come out and say that."
