Liverpool starlet sends another message to Dalglish

Raheem Sterling again demonstrated his potential in Liverpool's reserves, despite the Reds' second string falling to defeat against Newcastle.

It was a thrilling encounter in the north-east on Tuesday night as the Magpies won 3-2 under the watchful eye of new boss Willie Donachie.

Former Anfield star Peter Beardsley had been in charge of the Newcastle reserves until last week, when he was promoted to football development manager at St James' Park.

Sterling, meanwhile, opened the scoring for Liverpool with a sumptuous curling effort to further reinforce his claims for a spot in Kenny Dalglish's senior side.

The 16-year-old has already had a taste of first team action after Dalglish named him in Liverpool's Europa League squad that travelled to Prague in February.

Sterling, however, did not make his Liverpool debut but continues to put himself in contention for a first senior appearance.


Despite some personal satisfaction for the young winger, it was a disappointing team performance last night as Newcastle overturned Sterling's opener.

Nile Ranger netted twice for the home side, before Michael Richardson made it 3-1 with a spectacular effort.

Michael Roberts did get a goal back for Liverpool, but it was not enough for Rodolfo Borrell's charges.
