Craig Levein has warned that Liverpool’s latest signing, Calvin Ramsay, could disappear in a Liverpool side packed with talent should he not get the right amount of playing time.

“I worry that he’s not going to play first-team football and the problem with that is that, once you’ve started playing first-team football, there’s nothing else compares to it and you cannot go back and play reserve team football or your improvement slows down or stalls,” the former Scotland manager told was quoted as saying by BBC Scotland.
