London: Liverpool's new Spanish striker Iago Aspas marked his debut with a goal in Saturday's 4-0 friendly win over Preston at Deepdale.

Aspas signed from Celta Vigo for £7.7 million ($11.6 million, 8.9 million euros) during the close-season and he gave a glimpse of why Reds manager Brendan Rodgers was so keen to land him with a fine second-half strike against the League One side.

The 25-year-old curled home Liverpool's final goal as they eased their way back into action in their opening warm-up, a fixture organised in honour of Reds' legendary manager and former Lilywhites player Bill Shankly.
