In the beginning, the defender joined the Hoops on loan until January at the earliest.

In the following month, Nat Phillips will make his way back to Liverpool after completing his loan stint at Celtic.

At the end of August, the goaltender, who is 26 years old, signed a short-term contract with the Hoops in order to assist in resolving an injury crisis on the defensive side of the team. Several members of the Scottish champions’ backline, including Cameron Carter-Vickers, Stephen Welsh, Maik Nawrocki, and Yuki Kobayashi, have sustained injuries that are expected to last for an extended period of time.

On the other hand, during the Scottish Premiership, Anfield fringe player Phillips struggled to impress and appeared to be out of sorts. This was due to the fact that he took some time to get up to full match fitness status. There have been only eight occasions that Brendan Rodgers has utilized the former loanee from both Southampton and Bournemouth, with his most recent outing coming in the loss that occurred against Kilmarnock last week.

Phillips threw the ball in his own net as the Rugby Park team fought to overcome the league leaders 2-1 in Ayrshire. The custodian received heavy criticism from the crowd for his performance throughout the game. According to the Athletic, Phillips will not be offered a contract extension and will instead return to Jurgen Klopp’s team the following month with the idea of joining another club on loan for the second half of the season. This information comes from what the Athletic has reported.

This comes after John Kennedy, the second-ranked player for Celtic, revealed last week that the club would need to sell at least two central defenders in order to clear its roster, which currently consists of seven players. It has been reported that Parkhead are open to receiving proposals for Gustaf Lagerbielke, who joined the club for a fee of three million pounds in the summer. Meanwhile, Japanese defender Kobayashi is planning to return to his home country.
