Brendan Rodgers admitted his disappointment that football was not the main topic of discussion following Liverpool's 2-2 with Chelsea - but insisted that he would not make any rash comments about Luis Suarez's altercation with Branislav Ivanovic.
Suarez claimed a point for Liverpool with a header six minutes into injury-time after earlier goals from Oscar, Eden Hazard and Daniel Sturridge.
It was the Uruguay international's 30th goal of the season - but the post-match press conference was dominated by questions about Suarez's conduct.
"I'll go away and review it and then comment later," said Rodgers.
"I'll make an honest appraisal on it and comment afterwards. It's not for me to make any rash comments or predictions now.
"This is a club with incredible values and ethics here. We'll review it as a club, because there's certainly no one bigger than this football club, a player or manager.
"As football managers and staff and players, we're representing this club, off the field and in particular on the field.
"But it's not the time to comment on it now."
He added: "I'll always speak openly and honestly about the players and protect them when I can, but with all due respect I'll make an honest appraisal of it [first].
"I'll always defend people if I think they're right - if I think they're wrong I'll tell them, and that's already happened with Luis this year. And then we move on from it. If that's what the case is, they've got to accept the consequences accordingly.
"It's disappointing that we're not talking about the football, because the character and personality we showed in the game was absolutely fantastic."
The game had been hyped due to Rafael Benitez's return to Anfield, and it had looked as though Chelsea would claim the points until Suarez's late intervention.
Rodgers added: "He didn't have his best game, but what he does is he keeps going, keeps working, and he got the important second goal for us.
"I thought in the first half we were too slow. We played with three midfield players to control and move the ball quickly but we didn't pass it well enough, we gave it away too cheaply.
"Even though we had one or two opportunities I didn't think we were at our best in the first half. I said to the players at half-time that we needed to be more aggressive in our game and show what we've showed a lot of the season.
"Second half, we were outstanding - we got a couple of goals and should have scored some more, maybe. Petr Cech made some wonderful saves."
