The Daily Mail says Tom Hicks saw his first game in three months but Gillett failed to make it to north London after his plane was delayed by heavy snow in Colorado.

"I've seen him [Hicks] and he said, 'Congratulations, well done, good job' - but then I had to come and see you," Reds boss Rafa Benitez told reporters.

The match had threatened to be overshadowed by a visit by the club's pair of feuding American owners after Gillett said they could no longer work together.

Hicks, who has been threatening to block Gillett from selling his stake to a Dubai consortium, watched from the directors' box, where he wore a Liverpool/Arsenal scarf.
