Adam Lallana pays Twitter tribute to long-term Liverpool absentee

By Harvey Byrne

Liverpool star Adam Lallana has paid tribute to long-term absentee Danny Ings on his personal Twitter account.

The 28-year-old England international has recently been in the treatment room himself, missing Liverpool’s last five Premier League matches with a hamstring injury.

However, that is very little in comparison to attacker Ings, who has not played for the first team since suffering a knee injury against Tottenham in October.

The 24-year-old also missed almost all of the last campaign after suffering a cruciate ligament injury, but he has not been short of support from his teammates.

A number have been quick to pay their support for Ings during his time on the sidelines and on Wednesday Lallana shared a picture on his personal Twitter account of the striker stepping up his rehabilitation alongside a motivational caption.

Winchester-born Ings joined Liverpool from Burnley in 2015 for an initial £6.5million following a tribunal.

He had scored 43 goals in 130 appearances for the Lancashire club and finished the 2014-15 season as the side’s highest scorer in the league with 11 goals from 35 Premier League matches.

However, his career on Merseyside has been severely limited by injuries and he has featured just 11 times in all competitions, returning three goals.
