Monday Night Football: Gary Neville says Luis Suarez can stay at Liverpool

Sky Sports expert Gary Neville believes suggestions Luis Suarez would never play for Liverpool again after biting Branislav Ivanovic were ¿nonsense¿.

Sky Sports expert Gary Neville believes suggestions Luis Suarez would never play for Liverpool again after biting Branislav Ivanovic were 'nonsense'.

Liverpool were last season criticised for their slow reaction to the controversy surrounding Suarez after his racial abuse of Evra but the club have acted quickly following this weekend's incident. And Neville believes the Anfield outfit have improved on the mistakes of the past, with managing director Ian Ayre even postponing a trip to Australia in order to oversee proceedings. Neville said: "They caused themselves problems last year with the protracted incident around Patrice Evra. This time, they have dealt with it quickly and swiftly. "I thought Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers dealt with it very well after the match in a difficult position. Luis Suarez has also done all he can to defuse and make the situation better for him. "From the mistake onwards, Liverpool, Luis Suarez and the manager have done all they possibly can to try and make it as best a situation as they can." Liverpool and Suarez have until 6pm on Tuesday to respond to the FA charge of violent conduct before they learn the length of any ban. The FA believes a three-match suspension will not be sufficient but Neville does not want to speculate over the possible punishment. He said: "If you are asking me for a number, I cannot give you any. You could throw a dart at a dartboard. Luis Suarez will accept the charge, he will get on with it. "I would be surprised if he plays again this season. He has just got to take his punishment. He has accepted he has done something wrong. It is a mistake."
