Hull City manager Liam Rosenior has prasied Tyler Morton after the Liverpool loanee made his debut for the Championship side this weekend.

Speaking to Hull Live, the second-tier coach lauded the Merseyside youngster as Morton came off the bench on the 59th minute, providing an assist for Aaron Connolly to secure a 1-1 draw.

The 20-year-old is regarded by many at Liverpool as one of the best talents coming through at the club, and Morton again showcased his quality this weekend for Hull.

And Rosenior was impressed, with the Hull manager saying: “Tyler came on and was very good. He’s had no minutes because he’s had a minor injury. I thought he was magnificent when he came on.

“He showed so many touches of class, so many touches of quality, he kept us on the ball was brave and he showed exactly why we worked so hard to bring him to the club. That 30-minute performance showed exactly why we waited so long to bring him in.

“He’s not up to full fitness at all. I have three midfielders in there, whichever of those two start, we’ll have quality. Tyler’s an outstanding young player/ He’s really happy and turned down a lot of clubs to be here.”

Morton was sensational at times for Blackburn Rovers last season out on loan, and early signs show that the Liverpool talent will be the same for Hull this campaign.

An assist off the bench in his first game for the club will go a long way in Morton nailing down a starting XI spot for the Tigers as we head deeper into the Championship season.

And Rosenior’s comments will only fuel Morton’s fire to break into the midfield, with the youngster good enough to start already for Hull in England’s second-tier.
