Liverpool icon Steve Nicol says former Portsmouth fullback Glen Johnson is a great signing.

"I think Glen Johnson will prove to be an excellent addition to the Liverpool squad," the New England Revolution coach told the official LFC Magazine.

"Width is always important in any team and if he can reproduce the form and the displays he managed in Portsmouth colours this season in the red of Liverpool then he's going to be a massively important player for us.

"Rafa will not have any complaints if he's able to find that form - and I'd like to think that playing with better players he'll have a chance of improving on that form this season.

"Every time the lad had the ball at his feet he looked dangerous and looked like he was going to make things happen.

"That's got to be a positive for the new season."
