Liverpool chief Rick Parry says new stadium plans won't get in the way of improving Rafa Benitez's team.

"A huge amount has been done in a fairly short space of time," Parry said of the stadium proposal, which was redrawn following the arrival of new American club owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

"The key thing is that it all stems from success on the pitch - there's only a point in building a fantastic new stadium if it's a winning strategy and it's going to be filled by a winning team.

"So we've been very quick not to hold back on the team, let's get that right, while in the background the stadium continues apace.

"I think people will be very excited when they see the plans."
