The photo desk has received this images of the Spirit of Shankly demo that took place at the weekend, in protest against the continued ownership of LFC by Gillet and Hicks.

The group is aiming to raise enough cash to take a take club and force the terrible twosome out. It’s a pleasing expression that sometimes there are wider issues surrounding footie than what goes on on the pitch or in the boardroom.

People power, with a bit of help from Aldo, Bish, Fitzy and Shankly’s granddaughter. Apparently McNab and John Power were there too. How boss!

From the Beeb:

Fans of Liverpool Football Club have staged a city centre rally in protest against the club’s American owners.

The Spirit of Shankly Union chose 4 July, American independence day, to protest against US owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

About 2,000 fans turned out to the rally outside St George`s Hall.

Speakers included former player and shareholder, John Aldridge and Bill Shankly’s granddaughter Karen Gill.

Leaders of Spirit Of Shankly Liverpool Supporters’ Union issued their own Declaration of Independence, outlining details of how supporters can buy the club through a partnership with a credit union.
