Liverpool Under-23s suffered a 4-1 defeat at home to Southampton in their opening game of the new season on Sunday afternoon.
Ings scored the consolation goal for Michael Beale’s side, who conceded two in each half.
Speaking on Friday, Jurgen Klopp had explained that the forward – who was out from October to May last season with an ACL injury – isn’t fully recovered yet and is still finding full match fitness, hence his involvement for the Reds’ youngsters.
Ings provided a typical striker’s goal for the Reds, finishing from close range from captain Harry Wilson‘s ball into the box.
