LIVERPOOL STRIKER DANNY Ings has suffered another serious knee injury which will keep him out for the rest of the season.

Ings, who missed most of the last year with a cruciate injury, was on the comeback trail when he damaged the other knee.

While it’s not another cruciate tear, Ings suffered serious cartilage damage to his right knee and is expected to miss between seven and nine months of action.

The 24-year-old picked up his latest injury in Liverpool’s League Cup win over Tottenham last week. He is currently in London seeing a specialist before he undergoes an operation.

Jurgen Klopp told the Liverpool website: “To say we are gutted would be an understatement; he is such a great boy and has worked so hard that he deserves better luck than this.

“It is typical of Danny’s personality, on and off the pitch, that he picked up this injury to his knee when courageously trying to win the ball back for his team by making a tackle.

“But it is this same personality that means he will come back as good and as strong from this latest setback as he has done in the past.

“I’m told the likely lay off is anywhere from between seven to nine months. He is mentally strong, physically strong and will have the very best treatment and rehab possible to make sure when he returns he is ready to play for us at the level we know he is capable of.”
