Liverpool defender Gomez: We're all excited to see Ramsay play

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez says the players are excited to see Calvin Ramsay near a playing debut.

The highly-rated Ramsay joined the Reds from Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen in the summer in an initial £4million deal that could ultimately rise to £6.5m.

The 18-year-old right-back, who will hope to challenge Trent Alexander-Arnold for a starting role, has been unable to yet feature in team training as he recovers from a back issue Liverpool sought to address after it emerged during his medical.

“Calvin seems like a really down-to-earth lad," said Gomez, speaking to the Liverpool FC e-magazine Walk On.

"Obviously, we weren't able to mix with him in training in pre-season, which was unfortunate, but hopefully he's nearly there in overcoming that little issue and I think we're all excited to see him play.

“He's obviously a talented player, which is why he's at this club, and from what he's like around the place, he seems a nice, humble lad. We're looking forward to seeing him getting involved on the pitch."
