Robbie Fowler has taken to Twitter to back Liverpool debutant Jordan Rossiter to impress against Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.

The 17-year-old has been hailed as a potential long-term replacement for ageing Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard after coming through the Reds youth academy.

Rossiter, who has been a regular fixture in the Liverpool Under-21 side, was named in Rodgers’s starting line-up as the manager rung the changes after Saturday’s defeat at West Ham United.

And Fowler, who has been working with the Liverpool youth teams alongside Steve McManaman and Rob Jones, backed Rossier to shine against the Championship side.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher praised manager Rodgers for handing the teenager a chance to impress in the League Cup third round.

Carragher and Fowler were part of the Liverpool side that won the League Cup by beating Birmingham City on penalties in 2001.
