Liverpool have confirmed the signing of young Scottish left-back Tony Gallacher from Falkirk.

The 18-year-old joins for a reported £200,000 fee and will go into Neil Critchley‘s Under-23s squad.

Gallacher, a Scottish youth international, has made 26 appearances for Falkirk and had impressed while on trial at the Kirkby academy earlier this month.

Falkirk manager Paul Hartley said of the move: “It’s an unbelievable move for Tony. For a player to come from Falkirk and go to Liverpool doesn’t happen a lot. It’s a dream come true, and we can’t stand in the way of that.

“Hopefully he goes there and proves how good a talent he is.

“There’s been a lot of transfer talk surrounding him over the last 18 months since he came into the team, but to go to Liverpool is a little but surreal for him. We wish him all the best. I’m sure he’s got a bright future ahead of him and it will be a dream come true.”

Gallacher was reportedly tracked by the likes of Man United and Barcelona before Liverpool made their move.
