Liverpool skipper delighted with High Court verdict

Current Liverpool co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett failed in their attempt to block a possible takeover by News England Sports Ventures in High Court.

“It’s a fantastic result and credit needs to go to Christian, Ian and the chairman who have worked so hard on this,” Gerrard told the club’s official website.

“It seems things are nearly sorted off the pitch so we need to start getting them right on it by getting three points at Goodison on Sunday.

“I know how frustrated the fans have been with what has been going on and I can understand their feelings. But we’ve all suffered in this, especially the supporters, and now it’s time for us all to pull together and help move the club forward.”
