Liverpool boss Dalglish fed up with Bellamy bookings

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is fed-up with the bookings for Craig Bellamy.

The Welshman has been booked in each of his last four matches, the latest coming at Wigan in midweek for an innocuous challenge on Mohamed Diame.

"It's all well and good having rules, but rules should be the same for everyone, not split up for different people," Dalglish told liverpoolfc.tv.

"Would you ever ask Bellamy to tone down his feistiness? No. He is experienced enough. But he has been booked four times and hasn't deserved any of them. Does that force you to alter how you might select him in the future? You would hate to believe there is an agenda against him. If Craig needs to play, he will play. We have just got to take that chance.

"Antolin Alcaraz gave five free-kicks away last Wednesday and there was no yellow card. If [Alcaraz] is going to get five chances, does that mean everyone else is? We just need a wee bit of clarity."
