Liverpool under-21s suffered a 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at the club’s AXA Training Centre today.
And to compound the Reds’ misery, Calvin Ramsay was given a straight red card in the first half of the game.
Ramsay has endured a difficult opening season since arriving from Aberdeen in the summer and been troubled by injuries.
That’s limited him to just two first-team outings, while he was not in the match-day squad for yesterday’s 2-2 draw against Wolves in the FA Cup third round.
Ramsay instead started for the under-21s but was sent off in the the 23rd minute for a trip on Spurs’ Romaine Mundle when he was the last defender.
In addition, Curtis Jones was given a 45-minute outing after also not being present against Wolves. Jones, 21, has been troubled with a tibia issue throughout the campaign.
Ben Doak, who came off the bench against Wolves, also featured.
