Last week I was at Anfield to commentate on Liverpool v Everton for US channel, NBC Sports. I was delighted when the teamsheets were handed out and the name of Andrew Robertson appeared in the starting eleven for Liverpool with Alberto Moreno out injured.

I’ve taken an interest in Robertson’s career since watching him steal the show with Queens Park in a live televised League 2 match against Rangers in 2013.

Rare has been the Scottish player in recent years to land at one of the big clubs in the Premier League and they don’t come much bigger than Liverpool.

For several weeks, I wondered what had happened to Robertson. For 3 months he didn’t appear as a starter at all for the Reds. Then he got the nod in the 5-1 win at Brighton and Jürgen Klopp now appears to be viewing the 23 year old in a new light.

I watched Robbo‘s every move in Sunday’s 4-0 victory at Bournemouth and liked what I saw. Not only was he getting forward with authority, he also impressed with providing blocking assistance for Philippe Coutinho on the opening goal.

Klopp was full of praise for Robertson’s performance and perhaps by leaving him out for as long as he did, was merely allowing the Glaswegian time to adapt to life as Liverpool player. It can be a heavy shirt to wear.

As a Scotland fan, more power to Robertson and let’s hope he continues to excel. There aren’t many better coaches to work with either. If Klopp can do with Robertson, what he did with Marcel Schmelzer at Dortmund, it’s a win for all parties.
