Danny Ings back at Melwood, reacts on Twitter to winning Liverpool award

The forward has taken to social media after winning Liverpool's player of the month award for September.

At least Danny Ings has a big smile on his face.

Indeed, above is a picture of the injured Liverpool forward back at Melwood for the first time and being cheered up... with the club's September player of the month award.

The 23-year-old made a big impact on Brendan Rodgers' first team after finally being picked for the Reds last month, although new boss Jurgen Klopp won't be able to utilise Ings' services for some months due to the forward tearing his ACL during training when the German came in.

What a blow for Liverpool, with Divock Origi not looking anywhere near ready enough to lead the line just yet and Daniel Sturridge also out injured. The jury is still out on Christian Benteke.

But, as stated, it was no doubt good to see Ings smiling after picking up his award on Friday evening. It's an award the Reds forward certainly deserved.

It will be as though Liverpool have a whole new signing next season if the 23-year-old can return to the first team fully fit. Klopp will definitely be keeping him in the back of his mind...
