Calvin Ramsay already aiming high at Liverpool and is "buzzing" to have joined

New Liverpool signing Calvin Ramsay has opened up about joining the club.

The Premier League giants announced that they had completed the signing of the Scotland Under-21 international from Aberdeen, which is subject to international clearance. The right-back, who passed a medical at the AXA Training Centre, spoke about his feelings upon joining the side.

“I’m just buzzing and it’s a dream come true really to be here,” Ramsay told the club’s official site. “It was a dream come true to play for Aberdeen, and now to be at one of the biggest, if not the biggest club in the world, it’s a massive achievement and I’m looking forward to trying to show the fans what I’ve got. Hopefully I can come in in pre-season, show everyone at the club, the staff, players what I’ve got and then we’ll see what happens from there.”

Ramsay pushed through the ranks at the northeast Scottish club and made his first debut in March 2021. In total, the defender featured in 39 games for the side, in which he provided nine assists and scored one goal.

The youngster, who at 18 was named the Scottish Football Writers’ Association’s Young Player of the Year for 2021-22, perked the interest of the Reds for his campaign in the 2021/22 season, in which he was also shortlisted for the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year award.

“There’s obviously a pathway here – that’s one of the reasons I chose it as well. It’s not just a massive club, they give young players chances in the first team. So if I can come in in pre-season, put my mark down, then there’s no reason why I can’t push to get in the first-team squad.”
