Liverpool news signing Calvin Ramsays says it was a dream come through for him to join the Reds.
Calvin Ramsay, a Scotland U21 international, has officially joined Liverpool FC, pending international clearance.
After passing his medical and completing the transfer at the AXA Training Center, the right-back signs a long-term contract with the Reds.

Ramsay, who rose through Aberdeen’s development systems to make his senior debut in March 2021, leaves the club after appearing in 39 games and contributing nine assists and one goal.
The 18-year-old was nominated for the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year award and was named the Scottish Football Writers’ Association’s Young Player of the Year for 2021–22.
“I’m just buzzing and it’s a dream come true really to be here,” Ramsay told Liverpoolfc.com in his first interview after sealing the switch.
“It was a dream come true to play for Aberdeen, and now to be at one of the biggest, if not the biggest club in the world, it’s a massive achievement and I’m looking forward to trying to show the fans what I’ve got.
“Hopefully I can come in in pre-season, show everyone at the club, the staff, players what I’ve got and then we’ll see what happens from there.”
After Darwin Nunez’s arrival and the announcement that Fabio Carvalho will formally join the team on July 1, Ramsay is Liverpool’s third new acquisition of the summer transfer period.
The defender, who has three Scotland U21 caps to his name and played for Aberdeen last season in the Europa Conference League, will wear No. 22 for the Reds.
And when Jürgen Klopp’s team starts getting ready for 2022–23 next month, he is already looking forward to getting started with his new teammates.
“There’s been a lot of young players that have played – the likes of Trent [Alexander-Arnold] and Harvey [Elliott] as well, there’s a lot more,” said Ramsay.
“There’s obviously a pathway here – that’s one of the reasons I chose it as well.
“It’s not just a massive club, they give young players chances in the first team.
“So if I can come in in pre-season, put my mark down, then there’s no reason why I can’t push to get in the first-team squad.”
