Carragher tips Sterling to be Reds star
Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has declared that winger Raheem Stirling has a "big future" at the club after impressing in the Reds' 1-0 Europa League victory over Hearts.
Sterling, 17, joined the club from QPR's youth set-up in 2010 and has emerged as one of Liverpool's most promising young players in recent years.
The Jamaica-born winger was the star performer as Brendan Rodgers' side toiled for a narrow victory on Thursday, with Andy Webster's 79th-minute own goal giving the Reds an advantage for next Thursday's second leg at Anfield.
And Sterling, who made his debut for the club against Wigan in March, has made a case to play more regularly, according to Carragher.
"I think the way the manager wants to play is with wide men and that suits Raheem down to the ground," Carragher told ITV. "He's come in and he's done very well. He's only a 17-year-old and it looks like he's got a big future at the club.
Carragher also believes teenager Adam Morgan, who scored in Brendan Rodgers' first match at the Reds helm in pre-season, could impress in the first-team.
"This club's got a great tradition of bringing young players through and we brought another one on in Adam Morgan," Carragher added. "He's also come through the academy and Raheem's got a few starts now this season."
