Kenny Dalglish hailed Luis Suárez’s display after the Uruguay striker’s second-half winner secured a narrow victory for Liverpool over Queens Park Rangers.

Suárez struck after 47 minutes when he guided a header past QPR goalkeeper Radek Cerny to net his fifth Premier League goal of the season.

And Liverpool boss Dalglish was delighted to see Suárez in the spotlight for positive reasons after the striker was charged by the FA for an alleged obscene gesture at Fulham fans after Monday’s defeat at Craven Cottage.

“The headlines don’t matter – but they will be nice headlines tomorrow,” he said. “He scored with a header which doesn’t happen very often and he played really well. It was well deserved and well taken.”

QPR boss Neil Warnock also chipped in with praise for Liverpool’s No7, admitting his side failed to cope with the Copa América winner.

“Suárez was magnificent and it was appropriate the best player on the pitch scored – we lost him, but that is what good players do,” said Warnock.

Dalglish was thrilled with Liverpool’s performance, especially the manner in which they contained the visitors and limited Warnock’s side to just two shots on target.

“It was an excellent performance. We had a lot of chances and we got one [goal], they never got any,” Dalglish added.

“One is enough when the others don’t get an opportunity and the players showed great courage and belief in what they are doing to continue doing what they were doing well which was pass and move and creating chances.

“Some of the football we played in the first half was brilliant and I think we played better before we scored than after it – but even then we still created a few.”
