Tony Gallacher could be involved in Liverpool’s first-team squad this weekend.
The 20-year-old is a regular for Liverpool’s U23 side and has made ten appearances so far this season.
He grabbed his first goal of campaign as Neil Critchey’s side beat Everton U23’s 2-1 last time out.
The Scottish youth international is yet to earn a call-up to Jurgen Klopp’s match-day squad but that may well change on Saturday.
Andy Robertson appears to be a serious doubt for Liverpool’s trip to Crystal Palace. The Reds left-back picked up an ankle injury during the 3-1 win against Manchester City.
Robertson has since been forced to pull out of the Scotland squad. He now faces a race to be fit in time for our trip to face Roy Hodgson’s side.
The Reds have an able deputy should we need it. James Milner is a veteran and leader more than capable of filling in at left back.
However, beyond the 33-year-old Liverpool are short of options in the position. Hence why Gallacher is highly likely to find himself in Klopp’s match-day squad this weekend.
The 20-year-old Scot joined the Reds from Falkirk in a £200,000 deal during the 2018 winter transfer window.
Since then he has impressed in the academy and is now training with the first team adding weight to speculation about his potential involvement at Selhurst Park.
This would be a first for Gallacher who has so far been overlooked despite Liverpool fielding youthful sides in the Carabao Cup.
