Former Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton has called for the club to strike a groundshare deal with cross-town rivals Everton.

Broughton believes both sets of fans must place their emotional standings to one side and consider the options as they look to move forward in the future.

With new owners New England Sports Ventures looking at options to redevelop Anfield and build on a new site in Stanley Park, the British Airways chairman wants to see if the two parties can come together and reach agreement.

"If that's not possible, then in my personal opinion, ground sharing should be seriously considered," he said.

"Fans are understandably emotional about this issue, but this has to be addressed. It's not the case of being red or blue. You can be red one week, and blue the next.

"It's up to people like Kenny Dalglish to communicate the business sense of all this. It would mean open minds on all sides."
