Liverpool continued pre-season preparations earlier today with a behind-closed-doors friendly with Rochdale Town at Melwood, which was abandoned after 55 minutes as a result of a serious injury to one of the Lancashire club's players.
Rochdale striker Reece Gray suffered a serious ankle injury in the 50th minute of the game**, and it sounds like a major incident, especially given the fact he was rushed to Accident and Emergency for an urgent operation. Reece tweeted from the hospital:
"Thanks for all the messages people. Really appreciate it!.. Jus hope that the op goes well, and should be back playing football soon as!"
Reece also praised Liverpool medical staff for their swift action:
"Can't thank all the club doctors/physio's enough that were on hand too assist me 2day at melwood... Really appreciate it"
At the time of the injury, Liverpool were winning the game 2-1, with the goals scored by Nathan Eccleston and Glen Johnson.
The starting line-up was very interesting. After missing out against FC Gomel, Daniel Agger returned, as did Andy Carroll and Pepe Reina
