The Wales global, the first British player to score a victor in the European Cup final since Liverpool-born Peter Withe in 1982, produced an influential 29-minute cameo in the 3-1 victory which was a horror show for Reds goalkeeper Loris Karius.

Liverpool also have cause to be in the chase for a new goalkeeper, with incumbent No. 1 Loris Karius having committed two costly errors in the 3-1 loss that condemned the Merseysiders to defeat at the weekend.

Karius took to social media the day after the Champions League final to sincerely apologise to everybody connected to Liverpool Football Club.

The German goalkeeper was at fault for Real's opener, rolling the ball out with Karim Benzema standing too close to him and allowing the France worldwide to divert it into the net, and he then let Gareth Bale's long-range drive slip through his grasp as Madrid won 3-1.

Meanwhile, Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has asked for time to consider his future at Anfield, says Don Balon.

One game, one win, stands between your Cleveland Cavaliers and a fourth consecutive trip to The Finals. Terry Rozier paced the Celtics - now 1-6 on the road - with 28 points, and Jaylen Brown had 27.

Elsewhere, Christian Pulisic's father labelled reports linking the midfielder with a number of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, as "hogwash".

Loris Karius was reduced to tears after his awful performance gifted Real Madrid two goals. The final game of his glorious Liverpool season was over.

Liverpool will make further contact with Roma as they look to secure a deal for Alisson but ultimately may be put off by what would be a record fee for a goalkeeper.

It has since been revealed that the striker travelled to Spain for treatment as he hopes to be fit in time for the 2018 Soccer World Cup with Egypt.

Karius was redeemed by Sadio Mane's equalizer within four minutes, before Bale scored a goal worthy of winning a Champions League final and a place in the competition's storied history.
