Duncan, cousin of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, had hoped to leave the club on loan in search of first team football, but any move has been blocked by the Anfield hierarchy.
Liverpool have also made no indication that the 18-year-old is part of the first-team plans at Anfield.
Saif Rubie, who also represents Antonio Rudiger , took to social media to blast Liverpool and give a full statement on the youngster’s state of mind.

In the statement, Rubie said: “Bobby has not left his room for four days and will never go back to Liverpool.
“My only concern now is his mental health and well being.
“The Liverpool hierarchy have shown zero consideration to that and have even gone as far as saying in writing that they will punish him and make him stay at the club until January to teach him a lesson.
“It’s a sad state of affairs that a club such as Liverpool can be allowed to get away with mentally bullying and destroying the life of a young man such as Bobby.”
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher tweeted his support for Duncan but also appeared to label Rubie a clown.
I know Bobby & his family well, he’s young & at that age we all want everything right now. Played for the 1st team in pre season which is a great start & he should try & develop this season & maybe make the bench in Caraboa Cup. That should be the advice you’re giving him you 🤡 https://t.co/RqXd9eupc1
