Phil Thompson wouldn't mind Shawcross at Liverpool.
Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross has been ruled out of the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg against Liverpool on Tuesday night and Phil Thompson reckons the 28-year-old defender would be a good addition for the Anfield outfit, after conceding more goals than any other side in the top-half of the Premier League this season.
While speaking to Sky Sports, the Liverpool legend said: "When Liverpool evaluate at the end of the season and look at the sort of goals they conceded, I wouldn't be averse to see them looking towards Shawcross as a solution.
"In fact I think he would be absolutely ideal and he's been one of the most underrated centre-backs over the last five seasons. You just have to look at Stoke's stats with and without him."
