The Scotland international is stepping up his rehab after missing the last 13 matches of last season with a ruptured Achilles.

He told the club website: "I'm doing well, it's a slow process as we are making sure the foundations are right as you have to make sure the ankle is strong before I put full weight on it.

"My ankle gets stiff in the morning and the evening, but that is normal because there has been a big trauma. Once I get going on it then it's all right. I am walking normally now.

"I'm happy with how it's going and I hope to get some minutes on the pitch in August, but the main aim is to be fully fit by the end of September. Anything earlier is a bonus."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
