After agreeing to a loan move, a Liverpool defender will face a challenge from Steven Gerrard.

Liverpool defender Adam Lewis will spend next season on loan at Livingston in the Scottish Premiership, where he will try to stop old coach Steven Gerrard.

Lewis will join David Martindale’s side, who finished sixth in Scotland’s top flight last season, north of the border for the upcoming season.

And it means the 21-year-old left-back will face Rangers manager Steven Gerrard, who coached him for Liverpool’s under-18s.

During that time, the Reds great voiced his appreciation for the youngster he appointed captain.

“In terms of talent and what he can produce in the final third, I haven’t seen anyone as excellent as him at that age,” Gerrard remarked.

Lewis played the first half of the season on loan with Amiens in France before making 20 appearances for League One club Plymouth Argyle.

He joined Liverpool’s Academy at the age of six and signed a long-term contract with the club last year after making his first-team debut against Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup fourth round replay at Anfield in February 2020.

Meanwhile, Liverpool goalkeeper Liam Hughes has extended his contract. The Northern Ireland U21 international joined the U23 squad in January to bolster the squad.
