Suarez was issued with the punishment for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic, an act which drew condemnation from the Prime Minister as well as football pundits.

Redknapp said: "I could see it coming. Once politicians have opinions, you could see he was going to be hammered, for sure.

"He's such a player, just the most fantastic footballer. I think he's amazing. You'd absolutely love to have him playing in your team.

"He could play in any team in the world he is that good so it's a shame that he goes off the rails.

"I agree with what Graeme Souness said: he's now in the last chance saloon. He can't do it again. It's quite a fierce punishment, 10 games, but he's got to learn. It must be difficult for (Liverpool boss) Brendan Rodgers.

"He gets slaughtered for whatever he says, but he's got to protect the player and protect the club. He is in a difficult situation.

"The boy is some player but he's got to learn his lesson now and this has got to be the last time he does something as stupid as that."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
