Supporters have been giving their views on an interesting Deadline Day signing by Scottish League One club Queen’s Park, Luis Longstaff from Liverpool.
The versatile attacking option has left the English Premier League giants to sign for Queen’s Park on a season-long loan. Longstaff has made one senior appearance for Liverpool and will rack up more competitive outings in Glasgow.
Queen’s are famously where current Liverpool left-back and Scotland captain Andy Robertson made his name, saying of his lower league experience in 2020: “I didn’t think playing for Queen’s Park would still be helping me now, but when we’re playing behind closed doors it’s helped me a wee bit. I’ve been trying to use that experience.
“I’m happy with the way my journey has gone, but I’m always one who’s looking forward and not back and I’m looking to add more trophies at Liverpool.”
Robertson’s 2020 title win with Liverpool ended Queen’s Park’s 153-year wait to claim that one of their former players has gone on to collect a Premier League winners medal. Now Longstaff will look to walk the same path as Robertson by using Queen’s as a career springboard. It’s caught the attention of fans north and south of the border.
Good Luck young man

Luis Longstaff to Queens Park FC confirmed.
The 20 year old winger moves to Scottish League One, in what will be an ample opportunity to grab minutes after 2 seasons of Premier League 2 football. Timely loan for an U23 player who benefits.
