‘Nearly there’ - Liverpool dressing room excited as ‘talented player’ set for injury return

Calvin Ramsay is still to make an appearance for Liverpool since signing from Aberdeen.

Joe Gomez is excited to see Liverpool summer signing Calvin Ramsay in action.

The right-back joined the Reds from Aberdeen for a fee of £6.5 million in June.

However, Ramsay has yet to feature for Jurgen Klopp's side. Liverpool discovered an issue with the 19-year-old's back, which meant he's been unavailable since the start of pre-season.

But Ramsay has been spotted in training with his team-mates in recent weeks as he works towards his maiden Reds opportunity.

Speaking to Liverpool's e-magazine Walk On, Gomez admits it was 'unfortunate' the squad were unable to fully get to know Ramsay over the summer.

But the centre-back is now relishing seeing Ramsay in action as he closes in on a return.

“Calvin seems like a really down-to-earth lad," said Gomez.

“Obviously, we weren't able to mix with him in training in pre-season, which was unfortunate, but hopefully he's nearly there in overcoming that little issue and I think we're all excited to see him play.

“He's obviously a talented player, which is why he's at this club, and from what he's like around the place, he seems a nice, humble lad.

“We're looking forward to seeing him getting involved on the pitch.”
