Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Andy Robertson on a long-term deal.

Robertson joins the Reds for a fee believed to be around £10million, becoming their third signing of the summer.

The Scotland left-back will provide competition for James Milner.

Robertson said: “It feels a wee bit surreal just now. Obviously I’m delighted. There’s been a lot of speculation over the last couple of weeks but I’m glad that the deal’s finally been done and I’m a Liverpool player.

“My family are proud of what I’ve achieved so far and they’re all over the moon with the move, as well as me of course. We’re all just looking forward to being part of the Liverpool family now.

“There’s not many, if any, more special clubs than Liverpool. When you grow up as a kid you dream of playing with big clubs such as Liverpool and to make that a reality is a dream come true for me.

“I just want to prove to people that I can do it at this level, and hopefully I manage to do that this season and go on to do good things for this club.”

The 23-year-old will wear the No.26 shirt for Liverpool.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp paid tribute to Robertson and is confident there is much more to come from the defender.

"For Andrew this is another big step on what has been a quite incredible personal journey in a very short space of time," he told

“I love his story; where he has come from professionally to reach this point.

"When you speak to him it is clear why he makes his progress. He has a burning love for playing football - he really loves the game.

"His attitude is outstanding - absolutely outstanding. His talent and skills - also very, very good.

"He has experience of this competition, the Premier League, and he has the mentality and quality to get even better.

"I know our environment will benefit him and help him push himself even more than he has already. This is a player who does not limit his ambition, I think."
