John Henry still leery as Liverpool owners drop restraining order
|10.15.10 at 8:01 am ET|
The American owners of the Liverpool soccer team on Friday morning withdrew their Texas court order blocking the sale to the company that owns the Red Sox, but the fight might not be finished. Co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett Jr. are rumored to be considering assistance from American hedge fund Mill Financial to pay off the debt owed to Royal Bank of Scotland, which could keep the team from New England Sports Ventures.
John Henry, who heads the Red Sox parent company, tweeted early Friday morning: “We have a binding contract. Will fight Mill Hicks Gillett attempt to keep club today. Their last desperate attempt to entrench their regime.”
A British High Court judge had warned that the Texas case needed to be dropped by 10 a.m. Friday or Hicks and Gillett would be in contempt of court.
