Liverpool No2 Clarke hails Adam performance in Malaysia win

Liverpool No2 Steve Clarke was delighted seeing Charlie Adam score his first goal for the club in their victory over Malaysia.

The midfielder opened the scoring with a twice taken spot-kick as the Reds went on to win 6-3 courtesy of other goals from David Ngog (2), Maxi Rodriguez (2) and Dirk Kuyt.

The Assistant boss - who took charge of first team affairs in the absence of Kenny Dalglish - was delighted for the No.26 and revealed that he was more than satisfied with the squad's second outing of pre-season.

Clarke told Liverpoolfc.tv: "He did well. He had the added pressure that he had to take the penalty a second time. He showed great composure. He also enjoyed some nice touches and some good forward passes. We all know there is a lot more to come from all of the players and Charlie Adam is one of those that will improve throughout the pre-season."

He added: "We've got to be happy with the fact we scored six goals. We are disappointed that we conceded three - although one of them looked at least three yards offside.

"It was a good work-out. We got the fitness work done and that is what you are trying to do at this stage. We have a lot of things we need to improve but we can take a lot of positives too."
