Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has accused the Football Association of not setting a good example in successfully appealing Wayne Rooney's three-match international ban.
The Manchester United striker's UEFA suspension was reduced to two matches on Thursday morning, just a day after Dalglish's own player Luis Suarez, who was already facing a racism charge dating back to October, was charged with misconduct after allegedly making an obscene gesture to fans following the 1-0 defeat at Fulham on Monday.
And Dalglish believes the FA should look at their own actions before tackling other issues, saying: "I find it a bit strange the FA are supposed to be setting an example for things yet they appeal against Wayne Rooney's three-match ban. I don't think that's a good example to set."
