Undiagnosed back problems kept the right-back from Aberdeen, and the injury situation has not gotten any better since. The young player hasn’t participated in a senior-level competitive match since making his debut for Liverpool in the League Cup victory against Derby in November.
Ramsay’s first season at Anfield was cut short in February when he needed surgery for a major knee injury. The Scottish star is now at Preston, where he has not yet played, after the Reds felt it would be best to loan him out for the current season. The right-back had an injury before the season began, and manager Ryan Lowe said last month that he might miss “six to eight weeks” as a result.
This is Anfield reports that Preston manager Lowe informed reporters on Thursday that Ramsay will “probably be out for another couple of months” and that the injury is now thought to be worse than initially thought.
The defender has now returned to Liverpool’s AXA Training Centre to continue his recuperation, as is customary for loanees who have had long-term injuries. This will be yet another setback for the young player, whose primary goal in being sent out was to get crucial senior-level playing time.
