Keith Hill: Stones needs freedom

Stones, who has been linked with a move to a number of Premier League clubs, has been the bright light in a disappointing season for the Reds, who have lost six of their last eight games and reside in the bottom three.

And Hill is desperate to for his 18-year-old right-back to play without fear.

"He is a strong character but we can't be chipping away and creating negative," he said. "We have to give him the opportunity to express himself and play fear-free.

"But where we are at this moment in time, we are fighting and I think it is unfair for a young man to be put into this situation of a real man's position.

"When he is playing fear-free then he will progress and I will manage that and take as much of the pressure as much as I can. He is a fabulous football player and he will progress."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
