Salah went to ground after he was tackled by former Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho during the first half of the match.

The Egyptian scored a brace to aid Liverpool's comeback from a goal down in the first half to beat Crystal Palace 4-3, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane also found the net in the victory that keeps them floating at top of the League standings.

James Milner sent off with the score at 3-2 while Andros Townsend, James Tomkins and Max Meyer all scored for Palace.

But Crooks when watching the game for BBC Sport's Final Score, slammed Salah for the diving incident which resulted in several Palace players confronting the Liverpool winger.

"It's pathetic," said former Tottenham striker Crooks.

"By the way, why doesn't Klopp say 'just play the game?'

"People are going to tackle you in the box but don't try and kid everybody because what you're doing is just messing with your credibility. He's messing with his reputation.

"Very soon, not just the professionals are going to say it's cheating but the supporters too."
