Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has apologised for his behaviour in the post-match interview after defeat to Manchester United.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has apologised for his behaviour in the post-match interview after defeat to Manchester United.

Dalglish was visibly angry after being questioned about Luis Suarez's conduct throughout the game.

Dalglish said in a statement released on the official Liverpool website on Sunday afternoon: "Ian Ayre has made the club's position absolutely clear and it is right that Luis Suarez has now apologised for what happened at Old Trafford.

"To be honest, I was shocked to hear that the player had not shaken hands having been told earlier in the week that he would do.

"But as Ian said earlier, all of us have a responsibility to represent this Club in a fit and proper manner and that applies equally to me as Liverpool manager.

"When I went on TV after yesterday's game I hadn't seen what had happened, but I did not conduct myself in a way befitting of a Liverpool manager during that interview and I'd like to apologise for that."
