JURGEN KLOPP has sent a thank you message to Caoimhin Kelleher's old club Ringnamahon Rangers for allowing him to join the club.
Kelleher has become one of the best no 2's in English football and established himself as one of Liverpool's keymen during their League Cup win last month.
The Cork native kept Chelsea out on a number of occasions and scored the winning penalty in the decisive shootout in Wembley.
Recently Klopp described the Corkman as the best no 2 in the Premier League after winning his club side the League Cup.
His ability to use his feet and pass well for a goalkeeper has been a real asset for the title chasing red's.
Kelleher originally started off as a striker for Ringmahon Rangers, but eventually tried his hand at goalkeeping for the Cork side.
It alerted Liverpool and in 2015 the Merseyside club signed the Irish keeper to their academy, which has brought through the likes of Steven Gerrard, Trent-Alexander-Arnold through the years.
