Liverpool boss Dalglish loses rag with interviewer over Suarez questions

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish snapped at his interviewer after defeat at Manchester United for pursuing his opinion on Luis Suarez's behaviour. Dalglish launched a furious defence of his player following the match.

The Scot, who has backed his player throughout the whole saga, told Sky Sports 2: "I never knew he never shook his hand. I don't know, I wasn't there, I never saw it. We haven't looked at the handshakes, but that's contrary to what I was told."

When told Suarez had refused to shake Evra's hand, he added: "We'll ask him and we'll take it from there."

When pressed further by tunnel interviewer Geoff Shreeves whether he would have to look seriously at the refusal to shake hands in light of the confrontations that followed at half-time and full-time, Dalglish said: "I think you're very severe and I think you're bang out of order to blame Luis Suarez for anything that happened here today.

"I think predominantly both sets of fans behaved really well, they had a bit of banter between each other, no problem. How many bookings were there?"
