Liverpool fans praise Danny Ings as he scores third goal for Southampton

Danny Ings had limited time on the pitch during his three-year spell at Liverpool, but he has remained a well-liked character on Merseyside.

The striker has been hugely unlucky with injuries in his senior career, but he has now found a new lease of life at Southampton.

The 26-year-old joined the coastal club in the summer on an initial season-long loan, which will become permanently on July 1, 2019.

Since making his debut for the Saints, Ings has scored three goals in five outings, four of which he was named in the starting XI for.

The most recent hit came on Monday night in a 2-2 draw with Brighton at St Mary’s.

The striker put Saints two goals to the good by netting from the penalty spot in the 65th minute.

However, overall it was not the best result for Mark Hughes’s men as they relinquished their lead by conceding two Brighton goals.

Despite the result, some Liverpool fans took to Twitter to praise Ings, and one even suggested that if the forward had stayed at Anfield he would be in contention to start against Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League group opener on Tuesday night.
