The striker has become a regular target for other clubs' supporters following a string of diving accusations and a ban for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra.

But in a revealing interview with Sky Sports News, Suarez insists the criticism is water off a duck's back while he still has the backing of his own fans and team-mates.

He said: "Everyone's got the right to have an opinion, but if I had to listen to every comment from every media outlet I'd go crazy.

"Whatever I do on the field, good or bad, is going to receive some comment so I deal with it by trying not to pay too much attention to it.

"What's important to me is the way my team-mates treat me, and the relationship I've got with them. I enjoy the support of the fans, and I'm at a club where I'm very happy. That's very important."

Suarez signed a new contract in the summer despite Liverpool's mid-table finish last season, and the Uruguayan is convinced the club has a bright future under Brendan Rodgers.

He said: "I'm really enjoying the manager's style of play, it really suits my game. We've got some fantastic youngsters here who are providing a lot to the side now and will give even more in future."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
