Liverpool boss Dalglish changed mind on Suarez after seeing video replay

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish WAS in the dark over Luis Suarez's handshake snub at Manchester United, it has been revealed.

The Guardian says Dalglish attracted criticism for angrily absolving Suárez of blame for the problems at Old Trafford during an interview with Sky's Geoff Shreeves. Later, the Liverpool manager conducted an interview for the BBC, at which it was made clear he would not take questions on Suárez, but did not attend the main press conference.

Despite the intervention of the club's owners, it is understood Dalglish changed his stance on Suárez completely after watching a replay of the incident with Patrice Evra and, as yesterday's statements reflect and his close friend Alan Hansen suggested on Match of the Day on Saturday night, he feels badly let down by a striker he has defended to his own cost throughout the affair.
