Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray has once again hailed Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott as a 'wonderful talent'.

Elliott is proving a major success since agreeing a season-long switch to the Championship side in October.

The 18-year-old's strike in Friday’s 2-1 win over Derby County was his sixth in 37 appearances, with the winger also contributing 11 assists so far this campaign.

Elliott bagged the winner for Rovers at Ewood Park when his left footed shot found a way past David Marshall in the Rams goal. The England youth international has been tipped for a bright future at Anfield, with Jurgen Klopp a huge admirer of the winger’s ability.

The teenager is already learning for the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, and recently revealed the latter always helps him push to continue improving.

And Mowbray believes Elliott will return to Anfield this summer with plenty of experience under his belt.

He said: “Harvey is a wonderful talent. I don’t want to keep eulogising about him, because the statistics and his quality on the ball stand out for all to see.

“If anything, we can’t get the ball to him enough, but when we do, in and around the box, he can produce quality like he showed.

“I did tell him before the game that he has to keep his goal tally ticking along, although he seemingly gets an assist every game, but we’re delighted for him because he needs to keep it ticking along for his own confidence and belief, not that he’s short on that, because he’s a wonderful talent.

“I’m delighted for him and you could see his own delight in his celebration.”

Speaking earlier this month, the former Fulham man revealed how he is determined to earn a place in Klopp’s team next season.

"I'm going to go into preseason thinking that I can get into this team. And whatever way my chance comes, it's just about making sure I take it,” he said.

“Obviously, nothing's going to come easy but [I want] to sort of make sure that I'm in and out.

"If I'm needed off the bench make sure that I'm the person they look to. It is just making sure that I'm one of the go to people to come on or to start and influence the game.

“That's my position and that's my role to score or create. I think if I'm doing that, and obviously working hard for the team as well, I think I've had a chance to be in and around it.

"I'm just going to do whatever it takes."
