Dalglish criticises FA for Rooney appeal

Kenny Dalglish has criticised the Football Association over the way they have handled the appeal over Wayne Rooney’s Euro 2012 ban, BBC Sport reports.

Rooney has seen his ban reduced to two games instead of the original three matches and Dalglish believes the FA did not set a good example in the way they handled the process. Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is also facing a racism charge from October and Dalglish is unhappy that the FA have still not set a date for the hearing.

Dalglish said about the Rooney incident: ‘I find it a bit strange the FA are supposed to be setting an example for things, yet they appeal against Wayne Rooney’s ban.’

Speaking about Suarez, the Reds boss said: ‘The fact it has taken nine weeks to get a decision on one of the other charges is a bit of a joke as well. I don’t think that has helped as well. The circus which is around about him has been caused mainly by that.’
