Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre insists Kenny Dalglish wasn't left on his own to handle the Luis Suarez affair earlier this season.

Ayre was adamant that the management team had dealt with the issue as a whole.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, he said: "The great thing about Liverpool Football Club, and particularly the great thing about the team we have running that football club together day to day, is we are all in it together.

"We have a little word that we started using about a year ago, which is 'Unity'.

"We were unified during that process, we are unified as a management team, we are unified as an ownership and management team.

"Kenny wasn't hung out to dry and never would be. He's a very important part of our team.

"We were all involved in all of the process and we all move on from the process for the same reasons. He is a good man and we all support him."
