Jon Flanagan was all smiles with Liverpool team-mate Jordan Rossiter at The James Milner Charity Ball on Sunday night.

The Liverpool defender hasn’t had much to smile about over the past 18 months after an extended spell on the sidelines.

Flanagan was forced to undergo a further knee operation in May, which was tipped to keep the youngster out-of-action for six-to-nine months.

The England international is expected to return to action in early December as Flanagan awaits to make his first appearance under new manager Jurgen Klopp.

And Flanagan posed with Liverpool starlet Rossiter at James Milner’s charity event.

Flanagan posted the above snap and wrote on his Instagram page: “Brilliant night at The James Milner Charity Ball”

The Liverpool defender was on standby for Roy Hodgson’s England squad for this summer’s World Cup after a series of impressive performances for the Reds.

Flanagan, who was part of the Reds’s League Cup-winning squad in 2012, scored one goal in 25 Premier League appearances last season.

Liverpool were 4-1 winners against Manchester City at The Etihad on Saturday evening.
