Leanne Kiernan has claimed Liverpool FC Women's final Standard Chartered Player of the Month award in 2023-24.

The striker was voted winner of the prize, which covers April and May, after her fine form to end what was a brilliant Barclays Women's Super League campaign for Matt Beard's side.

Kiernan scored four goals in as many appearances and took top spot in our poll on, ahead of teammates Marie Höbinger and Sophie Roman Haug.

The Republic of Ireland international started the 1-0 win away at Bristol City before coming off the bench to net in the dramatic 4-3 victory over eventual champions Chelsea.

After helping Liverpool beat Manchester United, Kiernan then produced a second-half hat-trick in the season finale against Leicester City to seal a fourth-placed finish in the WSL standings.

"Even to score [once] for this club feels amazing," she said after that treble. "It's always nice to be in the WSL again and scoring again.

"I feel like I'm coming back slowly but surely, I'm getting back to myself and I'm feeling really confident for next season."

Beard said of the No.9 earlier this month: "She's just a fantastic player. She's getting stronger each week.

"You have to remember she was out for so long and to come back and have the impact she's done has been fantastic. She's more than just pace. Her finishing is second to none."
