(Video) LFC loanee delivers Thierry Henry finish to whet appetites of new club

Posted by

Sheyi Ojo was once lauded as the most exciting talent in our Academy, above even Trent Alexander-Arnold, but despite making Premier League appearances during Jurgen Klopp’s first season (2015/16) it simply hasn’t worked out for him yet.

The winger has been sent on multiple loans, but he hasn’t showcased his talent sufficiently during any of them to suggest he has a Liverpool future.

But maybe a year under the tutelage of Steven Gerrard at Rangers is exactly what he needs.

The 22-year-old scored a lovely goal in a friendly v Oxford yesterday, which demonstrated his best attacking traits.

Firstly, Ojo uses strength to battle a defender, then speed to get into the box, before finishing with aplomb with his left-foot.

He uses the same nonchalant side-foot technique that Thierry Henry did so many times in the Premier League with Arsenal, in fact.

We just hope he can play regularly and make a big statement north of the border, much like Ryan Kent did in 2018/19.
