Liverpool fans have slammed former Reds owner Tom Hicks after his recent comments about his time at the club.
The American took over at Anfield with George Gillett after buying out David Moores’ shares in March 2007.
However, in the space of three years, the relationship between the duo and the supporters turned sour as they insisted on pouring debt on the club and failed to build the new stadium that they initially proposed.
Hicks spoke to Sky Sports where he gave his views about his brief Anfield tenure alongside Gillett.

He also insinuated that the Reds would have been worth $3bn under his ownership – had he not been shown the door.
Supporters were not feeling sympathetic towards Hicks and made their feelings clear towards him on social media.

Hated them. Nearly ruined the club and didn’t care. You can even tell with that interview it was ALL about the money for them.

This interview confirms everything that was suspected at the time. He is only bitter that he lost out on ‘billions’. Also very out of touch with reality in saying that it’s a pity that we have improved Anfield as opposed to building a new stadium. Yikes
