Andy Robertson predicts 'amazing future' for Liverpool youngster Calvin Ramsay 'as long as he keeps listening'
Calvin Ramsay has made two appearances for Liverpool since his summer arrival and teammate Andy Robertson was full of praise for the youngster.
Ramsay joined the Reds for £6.5million in the summer [Sky Sports] from Aberdeen and is viewed around Anfield as a promising young star.
The 19-year-old has made just two appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side, but was called up to the Scotland national team for the first time this month for the friendly v Turkey.
In Stephen Clarke’s side Ramsay will reunite with Liverpool teammate Robertson, who was full of superlatives for the young full-back.
“I can help him and advise him, but I definitely wasn’t anywhere near Liverpool at his age,” Robertson told The Metro.
“I was only just starting my journey in football at the age he is. You can tell he’s young and has a lot of learning to do, but I’ll help him in every way possible.
“He has an amazing future ahead. As long as he keeps listening and learning his career will be special, that’s for sure. When it’s your first camp and potentially first cap, Calvin and his family will all be excited.”
Special career ahead
If Ramsay follows in Robertson’s footsteps, then both Liverpool and Scotland will be over the moon.
After enjoying so much success signing Robertson from Scotland, Klopp clearly wanted to try his luck again by picking up Ramsay from Aberdeen. While he hasn’t yet been given a run in the side, his brief cameos have shown glimpses of brilliance.
He also followed up his call-up by making his debut off the bench in a 2-1 defeat. At just 19 he has so much time to learn and progress, and Robertson is an ideal role model for the youngster.
Plus, not only can Robertson help Ramsay’s progress, but he can also learn from Trent Alexander-Arnold in Liverpool training. When it comes to attacking full-backs, Ramsay couldn’t ask for two better full-backs in world football.
As Robertson says, the foundations are there for Ramsay to progress at Liverpool and become a crucial player, but it’s now down to him to keep listening and adapting.
