Liverpool have just one preseason friendly left to play against Glasgow Celtic at Parkhead on Saturday afternoon before they finalise preparations ahead of the new Premier League season, which gets under way on August 17. There are still plenty of Reds players with a point to prove against the Scottish Premier League (SPL) champions.
The Merseysiders have so far enjoyed an impressive summer of warm-up fixtures with which to fine-tune team matters going into the 2013/14 campaign; however, it would be misguided of head coach Brendan Rodgers to think that all is rosy in the Liverpool garden as they await their first top-flight challenge against Stoke City.
In fact, a number of first-team squad members have much to prove to the Northern Irishman ahead of that opening encounter with the Potters a week on Saturday. Their last chance to do so is the clash against Neil Lennon’s Hoops.
And these are the five Reds players with most to show against Celtic on Saturday.
