Former Kilmarnock forward Liam Millar made his Liverpool debut last night as a young Reds side beat Shrewsbury Town 1-0.

A 2-2 draw with the League One side last time out meant Liverpool had to play a replay during what was supposed to be their February break. Jurgen Klopp confirmed a team of youngsters would be fielded.

That proved to be the case and Killie’s former Reds loanee got a starting berth up top. He played for 82 minutes as a Ro-Shaun Williams own goal secured Liverpool’s progression to face Chelsea in the fifth round.

Millar was on loan at Kilmarnock earlier this season. He made 20 appearances with 14 starts, scoring one goal before Liverpool decided to terminate his Rugby Park stint.

The forward also had a spell with Killie during the latter stages 0f the 2018/19 season. His first Ayrshire stint allowed him to break into Canada’s squad for the CONCACAF Gold Cup last year.

A pacey player with plenty of potential, circumstances have allowed Millar to make his Liverpool bow following his spell with Kilmarnock.
