Dalglish says everyone at Liverpool fully behind Suarez

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish and his players threw their full support behind Luis Suarez during their 0-0 draw with Wigan Athletic.

Liverpool's players displayed their support for the 24-year-old, targeted with chants of "racist" and "cheat" by Wigan fans, by releasing a statement before kick-off and wearing T-shirts depicting an image of Suarez and his name and number seven.

And Dalglish said that backing was reflected throughout the club.

"I think the boys showed their respect and admiration for Luis with wearing the T-shirts," said the Scot.

"It is a great reflection of the man as a character, a person and a footballer that the boys have been so supportive and so have the supporters.

"He has earned that. He deserves it and we will always stand beside him.

"They will not divide the football club, no matter how hard they try."
