Liverpool verdict due on Wednesday morning


A judgement in the court case which will decide the future ownership of Liverpool will be delivered at 10.30am on Wednesday morning.

Current owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks are seeking to block the sale of the ailing Premier League club, with the Royal Bank of Scotland, the club's major creditor, eager for a deal to be reached with New England Sports Ventures.

The case centres around Gillett and Hicks' attempts to sack several members of the current Anfield board, having previously been reported to have agreed a deal which would rule out such a move.

The future of the Reds has been further clouded by reports of a couple of other bids for the club, reportedly from Singapore businessman Peter Lim and hedge fund group Mill Financial.

Earlier in the day, prospective new owner John W Henry, the head of NESV, had stated on his Twitter feed:"Everyone is hoping for the best.

"There have been enough twists and turns. Hopefully all gets sorted out soon; LFC moves forward.

"It would be inappropriate and presumptuous at this time to respond to questions. In the interim, we're all rooting for the same thing."
