Liverpool’s Tony Gallacher has noticed parallels between himself and teammate Andy Robertson.
Gallacher, 20, has been an ever-present figure for Liverpool’s U23s since joining the Reds from Falkirk in January 2018. The youngster has joined a sqaud that is littered in world-class talent and he hasn’t had to look far for inspiration at the Melwood training base with two of the finest full-backs in Europe under the young left-back’s nose.
“Whenever I get the chance to go to Melwood, obviously I’m keeping a second eye just to watch what he does and try to copy him,” the 20-year-old revealed to Liverpoolfc.com. “He’s a quality player and he’s shown that.
“I’ve only been up to Melwood a couple of times, but you can tell that no-one wouldn’t get along with him.
“He’s got that personality about him that he’s just a likeable guy. He’s one of the louder ones in the changing room, I’ve heard!”
Is Gallacher the next Robertson
Gallacher recently made his Liverpool debut in the Carabao Cup quarter-final clash with Aston Villa back in December having played 90 minutes in a glowing audition under Neil Critchley.
Critchley – who recently departed the Reds to take up the managerial role at Blackpool – holds Gallacher in the highest regard and has entrusted the youngster with the U23s captaincy on numerous occasions.
The Liverpool youngster has represented Scotland six times at U19 level and started two FA Cup trophy matches for the senior side against Fleetwood Town and Accrington Stanley.
Having clocked up 15 appearances in Premier League 2, Gallacher was recently nominated for the PL2 Player of the Month award for February having played the entirety of the Reds’ two fixtures in the league during the month, securing wins against Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
