George Gillett has vowed to back Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez to the hilt in the transfer market this summer.

Benitez has urged Gillett and co-owner Tom Hicks to fund a major spending spree if the beaten Champions League finalists are to mount a challenge on all fronts next season.

Gillett seems ready to do just that, saying in the Daily Telegraph: "If Rafa said he wanted to buy ´Snoogy Doogy´, we would back him."
