Rob Jones welcomes Johnson signing by Liverpool

Former Liverpool fullback Rob Jones has welcomed the arrival of former Portsmouth defender Glen Johnson.

"I think Johnson is an excellent player," Jones told Liverpoolfc.tv. "We're getting a good defender and someone who loves to go forward too, which is something I think Liverpool have perhaps been missing.

"He's got virtually everything to his game and I think that's why the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea were fighting over him.

"Johnson is strong in most areas; he's good at going forward, has good pace, is strong and his defending has really come in the last couple of years.

"He's the all-round right-back and will strengthen the team. It's obvious Rafa rates him very highly."
