RAFA BENITEZ has told Spurs to put their money where their manager's mouth is if their interest in re-signing Robbie Keane is anything more than talk.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp angered Anfield officials earlier this week when he told a press conference he would be lying if he said he did not want Keane back at White Hart Lane.
Liverpool have stopped short of making a formal complaint to the Premier League about the matter but chief executive Rick Parry has written to Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy seeking his observations.
SAMI HYYPIA'S Anfield future could be called into question after the defender was again left out of Liverpool's Champions League squad.
The Finland international was not part of the 25-man pool for the group stages with UEFA rules limiting the number of foreign players. And Hyypia, a regular starter in the Premier League in recent months, has again been overlooked for the knockout stages with centre-backs Martin Skrtel, Daniel Agger and Jamie Carragher already at Rafael Benitez's disposal.
Sunderland are among a number of clubs are monitoring Hyypia's situation and could now make an effort to lure the veteran to the North East, although Benitez wants the player to stay.
