Redknapp knows of the pressures of playing in central midfield for the Anfield club.
And while Keita has been slow to adapt to the Premier League since his big money move from RB Leipzig, he has shown his talent near the end of last season.
And Redknapp thinks he will have a big campaign this time around.
"He struggled when he first arrived, but during the end of last season and from what I've seen in pre-season, he looks bang in form.
"I'm looking forward to seeing him show the player we thought we were signing from Leipzig originally."
