DALRY wonderkid Ben Doak has notched his first goal in senior football.

The 17-year-old headed in the fourth goal as his Liverpool side cruised to a 4-0 victory over Leicester City in Singapore on Sunday, July 30.

The former St Palladius Primary School pupil headed home on 49 minutes, as he got on the end of a Joel Matip flick on from a corner less then four minutes after coming on as a substitute at the start of the second half.

The former Celtic kid has shone for The Reds in pre-season, with his first goal for Jurgen Klopp's side, in their penultimate game of their Asian tour, the icing in the cake.

The youngster spoke to Liverpool TV after the match, explaining just how much the goal, in front of nearly 30,000 fans, meant to him.

Doak said: "It’s a good feeling, it’s my first one as well. It just feels really good to score in front of all these fans. I just tried to do my best and prove myself as well.

"It’s different to this time last year [when he was with Liverpool U18s] and there is still a long way to go. I’m just trying to improve every game.

"Of course, I want to play as many games as possible. The more games you play the more ready you are to stay in the game as a whole.

"I’m just trying to make a career for myself, hopefully at the highest level."

He also spoke very highly of Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah who has been helping guide him down the right track.

Doak commented: "I mean, what’s not to like! He’s one of the best in the world and he has been for a few years. I’m just trying to take everything I can from him."

A lot of the focus of Liverpool's pre-season has been on the club's new signings, with Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai joining The Reds this summer.

But boss Klopp was impressed by Doak's display against Leicester. The Liverpool boss was quizzed on Alexis Mac Allister's performance, but he quickly went on to the Scotland U21 star.

He explained: "Good player (Mac Allister). These things need time. Even in the season, it's not that you have the first game and then it's the best game of the season – that would be really horrible if that would be the case.

"We have to work on it. We have a lot of options in the areas and the boys need to show up. It's not pressure, it's just the situation. I think it was clear when we scored three in the first half, but second half, Cody (Gakpo), Dom (Szoboszlai), Luis (Diaz) and Ben - to be honest, that was pretty special."
