The 22-year-old winger has been playing well for the Gers and has established himself as an important player in Steven Gerrard’s team.

According to WhoScored, the youngster has scored one goal in four Scottish Premiership matches and three goals in seven Europa League qualifiers.

 

The English youngster has suggested that he wants to break into the Liverpool first team in the long run.

Ojo told The Daily Record: “Wide players have to score more goals, look at Sadio Mane and Mo Salah at Liverpool.

“I’m still on loan from Liverpool so for me to get into their team I need to be doing what they’re doing – or even better. I need to be as direct as I can be and influence games up here.”

Long-term Liverpool future

Liverpool have a very good and potent attacking lineup, and it is going to be extremely tough for Ojo to break into Jurgen Klopp’s team, especially as he is now 22 years of age.

However, Klopp has shown that he is always ready to give youngsters the chance if they prove themselves, and during his loan spell at Rangers, Ojo should do his best.
