Mansfield chairman John Radford has launched a scathing attack on Luis Suarez for celebrating his FA Cup goal at Field Mill on Sunday.
Suarez scored what turned out to be the decisive goal in a 2-1 victory for the Reds when he handled the ball before shooting in from close range.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insisted after the final whistle that the handball was not deliberate, but Radford thinks the Uruguayan cheated and should feel ashamed.
"When you get a professional player like Suarez and when they celebrate after a deliberate foul, then of course it hurts," said Radford.
"Obviously he was (gloating). It was like, 'Hang on, I can get away with this'. If one of my players had done that, I'd be embarrassed.
"I was looking for a fair and true competition. That was one incident in the game that made me feel like it was such a killer.
"They've denied us a replay but it doesn't matter. I'm big enough and daft enough to stand up for the club and take us forward.
"But it's hurtful for the league we are in. I'd have been embarrassed and the man should be embarrassed.
"To do it deliberately and then celebrate is the hardest thing. To cheat, OK, but to cheat and then celebrate cheating...that is the worst thing you can do.
"Cheats will never prosper. The Liverpool directors felt embarrassed."
what do you think?

For Pete's sake!! Ref saw it, ruled it accidental. If idiot chairman wants to criticise anyone, blame the ref for getting it wrong.
He did not comment straight away.His wife did maybe she had a go at him.The manager took it better.All done get over it
well Mr Radford...... Guess its you that feels embarrassed really with your fool of a wife seeking her five minutes of fame speaking to Ray ( I will get someone to call Suarez a cheat if its the last thing I do) Stubbs. Cant be outdone, must show who wears the trousers lol. There's only you and some of the mancs left who have an issue! Those with any nouse of the game have moved on.
This is the man who has a wife half his age and puts her in charge because she is eye candy!!
