Jarell Quansah’s season ended on Sunday with a 3-2 defeat to Bolton Wanderers, meanwhile Scott potentially said his goodbyes to Robins fans after a 2-0 win over QPR.

Quansah's loan with the Gas has come to an end, and he has since returned to Liverpool, but will now link up for international duty. He started 15 out of 16 matches for Rovers, but missed three games through suspension after a red card against Portsmouth. Scott has just come off a campaign in which he got five assists and one goal, and was crowned the Young Player of the Year in the Championship.

Both players were part of the England Under-19’s that won the Under-19’s European Championships last summer. Quansah scored the goal to reach the final, and will now hope to emulate the last winning team, which won the tournament in 2017.
