Kelleher is one of the most highly-rated keepers based in England in his age bracket. The ace has been called up to Ireland’s senior squad more than once and is a regular for the Under-21s.
The ace’s eye-catching performance could earn him a senior call up for the next round of international fixtures.
More importantly, the ace has thrown his hat into the ring as a serious contender for Liverpool’s second-choice goalkeeper position.
Former West Ham star Adrian is currently filling in for Brazilian superstar Alisson who is sidelined, Kelleher’s display shows that he’s ready to be called upon for cup clashes.
