Brendan Rodgers insisted he would never ask Luis Suarez to curb his passion following the Uruguayan's booking for dissent in the 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa.
Referee Neil Swarbrick showed Suarez a yellow card on 90 minutes on what was a frustrating afternoon for the Reds at Anfield.
It came a week after Suarez missed a league game through suspension after reaching five yellow cards, but when quizzed by journalists Rodgers claimed he did not feel the need to intervene.
"He is a passionate lad," said the boss.
"I didn't think he deserved to be booked. He had a couple of incidents that he protested about that went unpunished, to be fair - and then he was the one who was [punished].
"I would never take that passion out of his game. That's what makes him the player he is.
"He has picked up some bookings this season but some of those were needless by the referees. He got booked away at Sunderland for diving when it clearly wasn't a dive."
