Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish hit back Manchester United identities Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville after Luis Suarez escaped dismissal during their draw with Tottenham. Suarez's challenge on Scott Parker resulted in a yellow card and left the England midfielder doubled up in pain.

"If the referee sees that kick from Suarez and books him for it, it should be red," proclaimed Rooney.

The view was endorsed by former United team-mate Gary Neville in his role as Sky TV pundit.

At least Dalglish opted not to get involved in that argument.

"He just never saw him," said the Scot.

Then, when informed of what had been said he replied: "Who said that? Why don't you tweet Wayne back and give him your answer.

"I don't have a view on what they have tweeted, especially when I have not seen it. If Neville or Wayne were standing there and asked me the question, I could answer them.

"I don't think you can speak for either Gary or Wayne so unless they want to ask me the question, I will just plead the fifth amendment."
