Liverpool midfielder Adam angered by dive claims

Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam insists he's no diver.

The midfielder went sprawling after the faintest of touches from Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand, winning the free-kick from which Steven Gerrard shot the Reds in front.

He blasted: "Well, everyone has an opinion and I felt a touch.

"If I hadn't gone down I would have been clear through on goal so there must have been contact. That's the way I look at it.

"I felt contact when I went past Rio and that's the way it goes. I'm not that type of player. I'm not just going to go down easily.

"It was a foul and that is why the referee gave it and the goal was just different class. That is why Stevie is one of the best players in the world."
