Pepe Reina is backing Scott Carson to push him all the way for No1 status at Liverpool this season.

"I think it's a great challenge for me - Scott coming back will mean I have to be even better and that is only better for the team," he told

"I'm not worried, I know that Scotty will be pushing me hard for a place. He's a great shot stopper, he showed that last season for Charlton, so with the two of us competing for a place it's better for the team."
