Player Profile

Liverpool signed Kelleher from Ringmahon in the summer of 2015 and his progress was rewarded with performances for the first team in the International Champions Cup in the summer of 2018 as well as featuring in a friendly victory over Blackburn Rovers. The goalkeeper was on the bench when Liverpool faced Wolves in the third round of the FA Cup on 7 January 2019 and was named third-choice keeper for the Champions League knockout stages. Changes to regulations over substitutes meant he was on the bench for the final and took part in the on-pitch celebrations after the triumph in Madrid. Kelleher made his long-awaited first-team debut when he delivered an impressive performance against Milton Keynes Dons in the Carabao Cup and he also played against Arsenal and Aston Villa in the competition, as well as against Shrewsbury in an FA Cup 4th round replay at Anfield.

Kelleher challenged Adrian for the role of back up keeper in 2020/21, appearing twice each in the Premier League and Champions League. At the end of the season he made his full international debut, coming on as a second half substitute in Ireland's friendly with Hungary. During the close season he signed a contract extension, keeping him at Liverpool until 2026.
