Liverpool veteran Milner praises 'absolutely fantastic' Phillips after Real Madrid draw

Liverpool veteran James Milner says Nat Phillips can be proud of his performance last night against Real Madrid.

Liverpool and Real played out a 0-0 draw in the second-leg of their Champions League quarterfinsl with the Spanish giants progressing 3-1 on aggregate.

Milner later said: “It was a good effort tonight, I thought there were some outstanding performances, Nat Phillips was absolutely fantastic at the back.

“It's disappointing because we did everything we wanted to do except get the two goals which is obviously the most important thing."

The midfielder also said: “I think the most important thing is focusing on our level of performance and if we perform with that intensity and desire that we played with tonight for the last league games, then hopefully we can get into those top four spots.

“It's the most important thing to replicate this form. That's the one thing that's been missing, that consistency, we haven't had it, so we need to get back and have a big push in those last few games and put this disappointment aside."
