Posted by

22-year-old Caoimhín Kelleher had a night to remember last night after the young Irish goalkeeper kept a clean sheet on his Champions League debut against Ajax.

Kelleher – who was selected to start over veteran Adrian – repayed his managers confidence with a solid man-of-the-match performance pulling off some great saves in the process.

The young Cork man from Mahon was greeted with a big hug from manager Jurgen Klopp at full-time as Liverpool progressed out of the group stages and into the last 16.

Liverpool won on the night beating visitors Ajax 1-0 thanks to a goal from another youngster – Curtis Jones – in the 58th minute.

Following the game social media blew up with praise for Kelleher and he was voted man-of-the-match on Liverpool’s official Twitter account.

Pundits couldn’t get enough of the young shot-stopper either with former professionals such as Michael Owen, Peter Crouch and Rio Ferdinand heaping praise on the Alisson replacement.

RTÉ had a lot of good things to say about Kelleher also highlighting his composure and commanding presence in the penalty box.

Jurgen Klopp couldn’t hid his joy at full-time and ran over to congratulate Kelleher for his clean sheet on his Champions League debut.
