Liverpool co-owner George Gillett insists pressure to spend on players this summer will not force the club into mega-bucks deals just to "prove something".

The expected blitz of the transfer market following Gillett and Tom Hicks´ takeover of the Reds earlier this year has so far failed to materialise, amid suggestions that manager Rafael Benitez has become disillusioned with the lack of funds made available to him by the Americans.

But while Gillett admits he is privy to the fans´ frustration, he told The Times: "I sense that kind of pressure building from the media. We´re not going to do something just to try to prove something. I can assure you that we are working on different things."
