Gillett tight-lipped on Liverpool January transfer funds

Liverpool co-owner George Gillett is tight-lipped on their January transfer plans.

The Daily Mail says Gillett put a brave face on the crisis as Liverpool prepare to face Manchester United on Sunday and insisted he and co-owner Tom Hicks were solidly behind the manager, Rafa Benitez.

Gillett said: "The recent run of results has disappointed everybody. It disappoints the fans and it disappoints Rafa. I have seen his television interview and I know he is disappointed. But we are in this together."

Gillett would not be drawn on further transfer backing for Benitez in January, though it is understood a modest budget will be available.
