Brad Jones dedicated Liverpool's 3-2 win at Blackburn to his son Luca, who died of leukaemia five months ago, after the Australian keeper endured a bitter-sweet EPL debut on Tuesday.

Jones pointed to the heavens after saving a penalty from former Ayegbeni Yakubu just seconds after he went on as a substitute.
