Steven Gerrard clearly enjoyed Curtis Jones’ memorable winning goal against Everton as much as any Liverpool fan.
See below as the former Reds captain paid tribute to 18-year-old midfielder Jones with an Instagram post showing a picture of the youngster with the caption: “love it kid”.
Jones looks a big prospect at Anfield and fans will be excited about more to come from the teenager after this stunning strike to win such an important game.
LFC won 1-0 against their rivals in the FA Cup third round, with Jones one of a number of young players to get the nod from Jurgen Klopp as he rotated his side for the Merseyside Derby.
Gerrard scored a few great goals against Everton himself, and Liverpool fans will no doubt hope another homegrown local lad like Jones can go on to have a similar impact in their first-team.
