Carragher tips hat to early Liverpool signings of Milner and Ings

Jamie Carragher has heaped praise on Liverpool for acting early in the transfer window.

The Reds have already signed midfielder James Milner from Manchester City and striker Danny Ings from Burnley and the confirmation of the two players has been welcomed by former defender Carragher who felt manager Brendan Rodgers needed to act this summer.

"It's nice to see new faces signed so quickly after a disappointing season," he wrote on Kicca.

"There's no doubt though that you associate perspiration rather than inspiration with both but on the back of a 6-1 defeat at Stoke and a poor end of the season we need it!

"I think Ings will take the role of (Fabio) Borini in the squad and will provide more than he has, that will probably come in the Europa League and Capital One Cup to start with then it will be up to him to show if he deserves to start more."
