Liverpool U23 coach Critchley: We've had to play Gallacher out of position

Liverpool U23 coach Neil Critchley says January signing Tony Gallacher will get better as he settles in.

The defender arrived in January from Falkirk.

Critchley told the club's website: “It has been really difficult for Tony because we signed him as a left-back but we have been playing a back three, and he has been our left-sided centre-back. We've got a younger new team and I think it would be unfair to judge him at the moment.

"He has settled into the group really well, he is a really likeable boy, he trains well with a great attitude and has good focus. I'm sure during his time with us he will improve and get better. At this moment in time we have to be patient with him and give him time to settle."
