Liverpool signs teenager Ramsay as a backup right back


On Sunday, Liverpool signed Scotland under-21 defender Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen as a stand-in for right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Ramsay, 18, who has not played for Scotland’s senior team, joined the club for a reported fee of £4.2m ($5.15m).

He made his Aberdeen debut only in March last year and has made 39 appearances for the side in the Scottish top flight, providing nine assists and scoring one goal.

Joe Gomez has been Trent Alexander-Arnold’s understudy for the past few years, although he’s a natural centre-back. Gomez linked with Anfield exit

“Playing for Aberdeen was a dream come true and now being in one of the biggest if not the biggest club in the world is a huge accomplishment and I look forward to showing the fans what I can do. I have,” said Ramsey.

“Hopefully I can come into pre-season, show everyone at the club, the staff, the players, what I have and then we’ll see what happens.”

Ramsay was Liverpool’s third off-season signing following the arrival of Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez and 19-year-old forward Fabio Carvalho.

“Obviously there’s a path here – that’s one of the reasons I chose it,” Ramsey said. “It’s not just a huge club, they give young players chances in the first team.”
