Calvin Ramsay could be set for full Liverpool debut after development - pundit
Kevin Campbell has backed Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to hand Calvin Ramsay his full debut “soon.”
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Arsenal and Everton striker sees no reason why the 19-year-old should not be brought into the starting XI this season.
On Tuesday (1 November), Ramsay made his debut for the Reds as a late substitute in a 2-0 win over Napoli at Anfield.
The summer signing from Aberdeen has been injured for the majority of the 2022-23 campaign.
He has impressed for the club’s under-21s in recent weeks, scoring twice in his three appearances.
Speaking to club media (2 November), Ramsay revealed his plans to get more first-team minutes under his belt this season.

When asked by Football Insider if a full debut could be round the corner for the teenager, Campbell said: “I think he is going to get a start soon.
“Why not? Liverpool have had so many injuries. They have hardly had a settled side.
“When a kid is doing well you have to give them that taste. Give Ramsay a taste and see how he does. It is really important.
“I am not going to tell Jurgen Klopp how to do his job. But, when a kid is knocking on the door… Liverpool have got a promising player there.”
Speaking on his debut, Ramsay said: “If I keep working hard, I’m sure I’ll get more opportunities – Champions League, Premier League, whatever it may be.
“Hopefully I can get more minutes under my belt.”
