Havrey Elliott remains in constant communication with Liverpool – but says that won’t distract from aiming to get Rovers back to the Premier League.

Elliott became the club’s fourth youngest scorer when netting in the 4-0 win over Coventry City where he also chalked up an assist for Sam Gallagher.

Jurgen Klopp watched Elliott’s display, and will have been excited by what he saw from the 17-year-old who has played every minute of Rovers’ two fixtures since joining the club on deadline day.

Having settled in quickly, Elliott is looking to keep up his, and Rovers’, momentum.

He said: “They’re always messaging me every day, after every training session, Liverpool is my club but now my heart lies on Blackburn, my desire is here and I want to show people at this club what I can do, and the Liverpool fans as well, so hopefully if I get chances next year or the year I have shown what I can do.

“The main goal for me this season is to get the team to promotion. Blackburn deserve to be in the Premier League.”

At 17 years and 203 days, Elliott became the club’s fourth youngest scorer as he finished off a flowing move with a composed left-foot finish.

That was his first goal in senior football, before also claiming an assist late on, and the teenager is eager to see what the future brings for this side.

“The main thing was the result, I was happy to score and contribute to the win and hopefully it’s the first of many,” he said. “I’m excited to see what happens.”

It’s been a whirlwind start to life at Rovers for the 17-year-old who has enjoyed settling into his new surroundings.

And he feels learning from the players, and coaching staff, at Rovers will stand him in good stead moving forward, while his support network will ensure he doesn’t get carried away.

“The game is done, my family keep me very level-headed and it’s about moving onto the next game, taking everything in my stride and just focusing on every situation,” he explained.

“It’s only the beginning, I have a long way to go and I’m just looking to keep improving and taking it day by day.

“I’m looking to put in performances in training and the matches to show people what I can do.

“Working day in day out with these lads, gaining different experiences and off different people will only help me.

“Every day I’m learning new things, how different teams play, and the professionalism.

“Learning off this team and these boys is a big help for me.”

Klopp and the Liverpool coaching staff will continue to monitor his progress, with geography a factor in allowing him to leave on loan, as was their relationship with Rovers, and Tony Mowbray.

Playing in a style similar to that of the Premier League champions, Elliott believes that has helped him settle in quickly, as has manager Mowbray.

Elliott added: “He’s a very good manager, always on to everyone, but in a positive way, and that’s what you need to keep you on your toes and you working.

“At 4-0 he was telling us to press and win the ball back so that shows you what type of man he is, he just wants to keep pushing and not ease off.”

“He’s been a really big help.”

Having failed to score on their last two Ewood matches, Elliott, who is primed to make his home bow against league leaders Reading tomorrow, feels Rovers can find a way of breaking through more stubborn opposition.

He said: “People will probably come and park the bus at times because they know our attacking threat, but with our quality I’m confident we’ll be able to break anyone down.”
