Dalglish plays down racism concerns in English football

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is confident English football does not suffer a racism problem. The Football Association are investigating a complaint, denied by Reds striker Luis Suarez, that Manchester United defender Patrice Evra was racially abused by the Uruguayan during the Premier League game at Anfield earlier this month.

England skipper John Terry has categorically denied racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand in Sunday's Premier League match.

But Dalglish said on Friday: "I don't think it is prevalent in the game here, and it certainly isn't at this football club.

"For me, I don't see racism as far as this football club is concerned, apparent in any way, shape or form.

"We have got a case going on ourselves which seems to be dragging its feet. "We would rather have it done and dusted, out in the open and whoever is the guilty party, whether it's the person who said it or the accuser, get their due punishment.

"We look forward to the case coming to a conclusion."
