Andy Robertson’s rise from amateur football to a Champions League-winning captain of his country has been nothing short of meteoric.
Now firmly established as one of the world’s premier full-backs, Robertson was, incredibly, still playing for Queen’s Park in his native Glasgow as recently as 2013.
Over the course of two seasons with Liverpool – following a transfer from Hull City in the summer of 2017 – Robertson has played in consecutive Champions League finals having progressed from squad player to key component in Jürgen Klopp’s team.
An indefatigable presence on the Reds’ left flank, Robertson’s 2018-19 season included a remarkable tally of 13 assists, being appointed captain of Scotland, a new long-term contract with Liverpool and places in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year and Champions League squad of the season – plus, of course, a European Cup winner’s medal.
The left-back missed only two Premier League matches throughout the campaign as the Reds amassed a club-record total of 97 points, and featured in all but one of the club’s 13 games as they claimed Champions League glory in Madrid.
Robertson’s journey to the pinnacle of European football saw him join Dundee United from Queen’s Park, before his first taste of Premier League football came with Hull in 2014-15.
