Ljinders added: “He is a typical Liverpool Football Club winger in my opinion because he has goals, he has speed. We really like him and we’re really happy he’s with us.”
Gordon was praised by Rooney before his move to Liverpool, with the Rams boss saying: “Kaide is a fantastic player and he has got a lot of potential.
And Derby’s academy director Darren Wassall said of the winger: “Kaide was the most exciting and creative player throughout the year and has shown a real improvement both in and out of possession, but we believe there is more to come, too.”
Klopp is expected to rotate his squad for Tuesday’s cup tie, with Curtis Jones set to start in midfield while Conor Bradley could get an opportunity at right-back.
