Liverpool fullback Robertson: Brewster ready for Barcelona

Rhian Brewster is ready to shine for Liverpool in Tuesday night's Champions League semi-final against Barcelona, according to teammate Andy Robertson.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp hinted 19-year-old Brewster could feature against the Blaugrana, with regular attackers Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino out through injury.

And Robertson thinks the English whizkid can help Liverpool overcome a 3-0 deficit at Anfield.

He told Liverpool's official website: "Rhian's a different kettle of fish. He's been out most of the season. Now he's come back and he's been doing well in training and scoring goals for the U23s.

"If he is involved or whatever then it'll be incredible for him. He's a confident lad and he's got no doubt in his ability and neither does anyone at Melwood.

"When he gets his chance, it's about showing it to everyone else because we know how good a player he is. Let's see if he gets his chance. But, if not, then his chance is coming sooner rather than later."
