Both the gestures came from the player who was at the centre of a bitter row last week - his first league goal in more than two months and his heartfelt acknowledgment to the crowd who cheered him. On Saturday night's match against Queens Park Rangers, Luis Suarez paid back for the unflinching support of his boss in his moment of crisis.
The first half was more or less a wasteful affair for Liverpool. They dominated possession of the ball and created several chances but virtually spurned them all, mostly due to Suarez. He redeemed himself just 90 seconds into the latter half.
Suarez's lone goal came on 47 minutes, and Kenny Dalglish looked a delighted man at Anfield. Liverpool were able to maintain their lead to the very last, clinching a crucial win against QPR. The Uruguay striker's finish also revealed his class when he headed home a Charlie Adam cross.
"The headlines don't matter but at least they'll be nice headlines tomorrow," Dalglish has been quoted by the Guardian as saying.
