Ross Sinclair, a 17-year-old goalkeeper who is currently on trial with Liverpool, is the best young goalkeeper in Scotland and should be snapped up by the Reds, that’s the view of his current manager Tommy Wright.
The St Johnstone boss, himself a former goalkeeper, recommended Sinclair to Liverpool scout Barry Hunter as he knew that the Reds were looking for a young goalkeeper.
Wright (above) commented: “The trial happened by chance. My friend Barry Hunter works at Liverpool and they are looking for a young keeper. So I recommended they took a look at Ross.
“He has gone down for a few days training and played in the under-23s game. So even if nothing happens it will have been a great experience for him.

“We have high hopes for Ross. He has work ahead of him but he will develop into a top class goalkeeper.
“Without doubt he is the best keeper of his age in this country.
“Ross is a good size, technically very good and he is comfortable with the ball at his feet.
“You could class him as having a man’s body but maybe a boy’s strength. He has only just turned 17 and he will develop physically.”
Spanish winger Ángel Sánchez Baró (20) is also on loan with Liverpool from Mallorca. He’s out of contract in the summer.
