Dalglish slams Liverpool refereeing decisions

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has blasted the ‘inexcusable’ and ‘unexplainable’ decisions that have gone against the Anfield side in their last three games, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The Reds’ Uruguayan star Luis Suarez was booked for diving during the recent clash against Aston Villa, though replays showed that there may have been some contact in the challenge. Dutch forward Dirk Kuyt was also denied a penalty in the game.

Liverpool, who have slumped to six defeats in their last eight Premier League games, were also denied a goal when Suarez was deemed to have handled the ball in the defeat to Wigan, while the referee failed to award the Merseysiders a penalty when the ball appeared to strike Newcastle defender Danny Simpson on the shoulder at the Sports Direct Arena.

Speaking about referees, Dalglish said: "They have to look at themselves and ensure they are seen to have integrity." The frustrated Scot also suggested that officials should explain their decisions and apologise if they make an incorrect call.

"It would be helpful and more transparent if they told us, if they explained the decisions to us, or even just held their hands up and say, "sorry I got that wrong", and we can see they have integrity,” he said, adding: "Otherwise, people might think there is a conspiracy.”

Liverpool's next opportunity to get three points comes when they face Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night.
