Liverpool Fans to Protest Hicks and Gillett
Telegraph, January 21st, 2008 2:15PM

Liverpool's ownership still hangs in the balance as co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett have yet to agree to a $700 million refinancing deal with the Royal Bank of Scotland. Meanwhile, Dubai International Capital continues to hover over the uncertain situation, looking to buy out Hicks, who is reportedly unsettled. But the American denied on Sunday night that he'd received any offer for his 50 percent share. "I have not received any offer to purchase the club from the DIC or anyone else, much less accepted any such offer. Nor do I have any intention of doing so," he told reporters.
 
Liverpool hosts Aston Villa in the Premiership on Monday. The Telegraph says Liverpool fans were expected to stage a protest over their owners. The Reds have just two wins from their last seven Premier League games; they are sixth place going into the match, 15 points behind league leader Manchester United.
 
Liverpool defender Jaime Carragher said the players can't blame their poor form on any off-field turmoil. "Anything that goes on off the pitch is nothing to do with the players," he said. "I know some people say what happens off the pitch affects players. Maybe it does. But it doesn't affect me. Why should it? I am paid to play, your wages are still coming in, you are still playing for Liverpool, so I don't know why it should affect players, and to be honest I don't know if it does that much. The results haven't been good enough because we haven't been good enough. End of story."
