Liverpool owner John W Henry drove the apologies of manager Kenny Dalglish and Luis Suarez yesterday.

Angered by the behaviour of Suarez and manager Kenny Dalglish at Manchester United on Saturday, Fenway Sports Group chief John Henry - who has monitored the scandal unfolding from America - forced the pair into apologies.

And Henry has now made it clear that he will take firm action to finally banish the saga that has overshadowed the club.

"No-one is more important than the club," a senior Fenway source told BBC Sport. "Apologies were necessary."
