Kevin Stewart [right] in action for Liverpool
Liverpool youngster Kevin Stewart has revealed he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from an ankle ligament injury.
The 22-year-old midfielder made his Premier League debut against Aston Villa last month but his progress was halted after he suffered the cruel injury just three days later in training.
There were fears that Stewart would be ruled out for the rest of the season but the former Tottenham man is now back in light training and closing in on a return.
“The rehab’s gone a lot quicker than expected,” he told the club’s official website.
“I didn’t expect it to get better so quick but I’ve been out on the pitch for about a week now doing some running and passing.”
