He’s told him what to expect on the artificial surface – and Liam Millar also anticipates Liverpool loanee Adam Lewis to thrive at Livingston.

The versatile left-back joined Livingston on a season-long loan deal from the English Premier League club earlier this summer. Meanwhile, former Kilmarnock forward Millar was leaving Liverpool permanently for Swiss giants FC Basel. The pair played together at various levels in the Anfield youth system.

Millar spent two loans spells in the Scottish Premiership with Kilmarnock and believes Lewis’ stint in the league will be good for his development. That’s despite, in his opinion, the 21-year-old perhaps having a squad role to play at Liverpool.

FC Basel’s new forward told NTOF of the Livingston left-back: “With Adam, he’s gone on loan to Livingston this season. I think he sees things similarly to me. He maybe thinks that there’s Andy Robertson and Konstantinos Tsimikas ahead of him at Liverpool.

“Is he third-choice? Yeah, probably. But he doesn’t want to be sat on the bench.

 

“He wants to play. When you are 19 or 20 years of age, you need to get that first-team experience.

“And from what I have heard he is doing alright. He asked me about Livingston, so I told him to look out his astro boots! Their pitch isn’t too bad.”
