Manchester United midfielder James Garner has impressed on loan at Nottingham Forest this season and he continued his impressive form when Forest recently played against Liverpool in the FA Cup on Sunday.

A lot has been said of Garner, and former Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest striker Glenn Murray has sung the praises of the Manchester United loanee, hailing him as a complete midfielder who can attack and also defend.

“James is a box-to-box midfielder, he is a bit of a throwback,” Murray told LFCTV.

“He’s got a great delivery in the box, good passing range and he doesn’t shirk away from the other side of it, which is the defending.

“He’s a bit of a complete midfielder. I think if he was at Manchester United at the moment he might have got a sniff around the first team.”

Murray added: “I am sure that next year if he is not part of the Manchester United first-team squad he will go on loan to a bigger, better team, possibly a Premier League team. It’s just about him progressing for Manchester United on loan at Nottingham Forest.”
