Rooney turns up heat on Suarez

WAYNE ROONEY has turned up the heat on Liverpool ahead of their clash with Manchester United next Saturday by claiming that Luis Suarez should have been sent off in last night's 0-0 draw with Tottenham.

Suarez, returning to action for the Reds since his eight-game suspension for racially abusing Patrice Evra ended, was booked just five minutes after coming off the bench, Suarez cautioned for aiming a kick at Scott Parker.

"If ref sees that kick from Suarez and books him for it, it should be red," Rooney said on Twitter and in response to criticism from fans, then defended his own record.

"For everyone saying about my aggression i aint had 1 yellow card in premier league this season," he said.

But Reds boss Kenny Dalglish refused to be drawn into a battle with the United forward.

"Why don't you tweet Wayne back? I don't have a view on what they've tweeted, especially when I've not seen it.

"If Gary Neville or Wayne were standing there and asked me the question I could answer them but I don't think you can speak for them. I think I'll just plead the fifth amendment." Dalglish said.
