And the 19-year-old’s former captain Steven Gerrard wasted no time taking to Instagram to hail the England Under-21 international’s winner.

Gerrard wrote on the photo-sharing app: “Congratulations mate @jordon_ibe ⚽️ 👍”

Liverpool are in second place and two points behind leaders Sion in the Europa League Group B after their 1-0 victory over Rubin Kazan.
