Yanks, But No Yanks

The High Court has ruled against Liverpool owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks' attempts to block the £300 million sale of the club to New England Sports Ventures.

Judge Mr Justice Floyd has declared that chairman Martin Broughton was correct to sanction the proposed deal with NESV. At the request of creditors, the Royal Bank of Scotland, a mandatory injunction has now been put in place on the American stewards which will force them to restore the original constitution of the club's board after they attempted to remove Broughton, commercial director Ian Ayre and managing director Christian Purslow.

The story is too old to be commented.
