Gillett admits embarrassment

Published Add your comment

Liverpool co-owner George Gillett has admitted the club's financial difficulties have left him red-faced.

Gillett arrived at Anfield early last year alongside fellow American Tom Hicks, and the pair made the building of a new stadium in Stanley Park a top priority. However, after months of speculation over their ability to fund the project, it was recently shelved until the current financial crisis eases.

"You feel a responsibility and an embarrassment on occasions when you haven't provided all you might have," Gillett told The Independent.

"There's a level of embarrassment and you want to correct it quickly."
