Calvin Ramsay’s loan stint at Preston North End has come to an unexpected halt, with the Liverpool fullback returning to Anfield earlier than anticipated. The confirmation of Ramsay’s return was made by Preston’s manager, Ryan Lowe, during a conversation with reporters.
Lowe stated, “We’ve got no information on it yet, but Liverpool are calling him back. We are just waiting on them to officially announce it, but he has gone back to Liverpool, yeah,” as reported by the Lancashire Post.
Ramsay’s return follows a string of unfortunate events for the Scottish right-back, including a bout of COVID-19 and an injury setback during his time at Preston.
The 20-year-old, who joined from Aberdeen with high expectations after an impressive 2021/22 season in the Scottish Premiership with 10 goal contributions in 33 games, faced challenges at Preston. His playing time during the subsequent two campaigns amounted to only 470 minutes, a notable decline from the 2,290 minutes he accumulated two seasons prior.
Despite the setbacks, Ramsay’s young age suggests that there is still ample time for his career to develop, and a brief period of rest before potentially being sent out on loan again could prove beneficial.
Liverpool fans will be watching with interest as Ramsay’s future unfolds, hoping for a positive turn in his fortunes on the pitch.
