Moores resigns from Liverpool Board

Former Liverpool chairman David Moores has resigned from the club’s Board of Directors, it was announced today.

Moores sold the club to American tycoons Tom Hicks and George Gillett in February 2007 with the help of chief executive Rick Parry, who also leaves the club this summer.

Moores’ reasons for leaving is unknown but he has in the past admitted he felt ‘œheartbroken and let down’ by the owners. He became Liverpool chairman in 1991.

Moores will retain his position at Liverpool FC as Honorary Life President.
