Liverpool are likely to face a nine-point deduction if its parent company Kop Holdings goes into administration next week, BBC Sport understands.
League rules say a points deduction can be used if a parent company insolvency is caused by the club’s management.
Sources suggest owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett would struggle to argue that the running of the football club had not affected the holding company.

Needless to say this news will not be taken well by Anfield supporters who had appeared to be ready to celebrate the sale of their club and a new era under the ownership of New England Sporting Ventures. Clearly a nine point penalty will all but ruin the club’s hopes of a top four finish and could lead the Merseyside club into a relegation dogfight.
