LFC fans plan protest against owners tomorrow

Liverpool supporters group 'The Spirit of Shankly' will stage a protest march against the owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett tomorrow before the Premiership clash against Manchester United. The march will start at 12 noon from the Liverpool Supporters Club on Lower Breck Road and will finish outside the Kop stand.

"There is a lot of anger and people want their feelings known - Hicks and Gillett are not welcome at the club," spokesman James McKenna told BBC Sport.

The 'SOS' says 4,000 fans turned out for a similar protest in September 2008, before Liverpool beat Manchester United 2-1 at Anfield and are calling on all Reds fans to show similar support tomorrow. The group are marching to express their anger at the clubs owners inability to invest within the club and are also apposed to the debt that the club have been leveled with.

"We hope a couple of thousand fans will turn out for the protest," added the spokesperson.

The groups website has also posted an interview with George Gillett given at the Liverpool FC Academy prior to the Hull City game on the 26th September, which can be heard here.
