Persistent protests from the fans of Liverpool FC and their supporters' union - Spirit of Shankly - have paid off. Co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett this morning formally put Liverpool up for sale. Meanwhile, the club have appointed Martin Broughtin, the chairman of British Airways, to the same role at Anfield and have charged him with the responsibility of finding a buyer for the club.
Syrian international businessman Yahya Kirdi is reportedly in talks with Hicks and Gillett over the possibility of buying the Anfield-based outfit. Any further developments will be brought to you as and when they happen.
