Man Utd accept Reds' apologies

Manchester United have thanked Liverpool for issuing apologies following Luis Suarez's failure to shake Patrice Evra's hand before Saturday's game.

Suarez was making his first start for Liverpool since returning from an eight-game suspension after being found guilty of racially abusing Evra during the two teams' meeting at Anfield in October.

Saturday's match at Old Trafford was the first occasion the two players had faced each other since the original incident and it was hoped that a line could be drawn under the matter.

The story is too old to be commented.

Great now lets all move on and put this pointless saga behind us. It's been dragging on for months and the fact that the last two derbies between these two great teams focused on racism instead of football was just embarrassing.

Of course they are not going to apologize for Evra's disgraceful celebration at the end, while whiseynose calls it nothing out of the ordinary.

Great attempt at trying to deflect away from the actual situation.

How anyone can condemn a player wanting to celebrate a big derby win is laughable. No handshake and no celebrating is it now???

even Ferg said what Evra did was offensive and immature, and the mass media you follow said it was disgraceful.

and Evra also tried to start a fight between the teams at half time, but to their credit the rest of the MU squad didn't jump with him.

and also respect to Rooney for refusing to get dragged into it.

What is it with Liverpool fans an lack of respect for their fellow man.

"the mass media you follow said it was disgraceful."

I can't be bothered any more, just keep your blinkers on. Evra did nothing but want to celebrate with his fans and clearly had a right to after being snubbed by Suarez disgraceful lack of respect and he obviously felt vindicated.

Like Sir Alex said, you can understand why he did it.
