Gillespie believes Liverpool’s season has been successful

Even if the Reds don’t win any silverware this season, the fans should be very happy of what the team has accomplished on all competitions.

Liverpool is currently fighting against Barcelona for a ticket to the UEFA Champions League Final, and they are also racing head-to-head with Manchester City for the English Premier League title.

But winning any of those trophies seems like something the team will not do, but for former club footballer Gary Gillespie the team can still be proud of what they have accomplished this season.

“The mood on the red side of Merseyside is that we can’t quite believe how good we’ve played and how we’re going to come up that little bit short,” the 58-year-old was quoted by Goal.

“It’s been a fantastic season and I don’t think many Liverpool supporters will complain if we don’t win anything because it’s been such a spectacular season.”

“It’s something to build on and look forward to the future because I don’t think this is the end for Liverpool, it’s not a one-off,” he added.

“This will be sustained for the years to come. It’s not if we win the league again, it’s when.”

“You would have to be the utmost optimist to get anything out of the game but in reality, it’s going to be very difficult because you don’t have your main striker and your best player,” he added,” he continued.

“It’s going to be almost impossible but stranger things have happened in football. You can only hope and pray for them.”

“Our tie with Man City a few years ago we were 3-0 up going to the Etihad and you were thinking ‘maybe City have still got a wee chance because you never know what can happen’,” he said.

“But Barcelona have got so much experience that even if Liverpool do get an early goal, I can’t see them panicking or really being influenced by the crowd maybe another team might have been.”
