Adam denies diving accusation

Steven Gerrard put the Reds in front at Anfield after converting a

free-kick, which Adam had won after taking a tumble in a challenge

with United defender Rio Ferdinand on the edge of the box. The

Scotland international has been accused of play-acting after the

slightest of touches from Ferdinand, which halted what had been a

dangerous run. But Adam is adamant he did not make the most of the

incident and claims he would not have passed up what could have

been a goalscoring opportunity. “I felt a touch and if I hadn’t

gone down I would have been clear through on goal so there must

have been contact,” he said. “That’s the way I look at it. I felt

contact when I went past Rio and that’s the way it goes. “I’m not

just going to go down easily. I’m not that type of player. It was a

foul and that is why the referee gave it.”
