Andy Robertson hailed one of the best nights of his career after helping Liverpool complete a 5-1 aggregate victory over Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

But the Scot insists he doesn't want the dream to end there, with a trip to the tournament's final to fight for the club's sixth European Cup now firmly in his sights.

Robertson returned from injury to reclaim his starting place at left-back as the Reds earned an unforgettable come-from-behind 2-1 win at Etihad Stadium to take their place in the last four last night.

On the same day just five years earlier, the 24-year-old featured for amateur outfit Queen's Park as they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Annan Athletic in front of just 242 people in Scotland's fourth tier.

As such, when asked if helping best Pep Guardiola's team ranked as the highlight of his career thus far, Robertson told "I would say so! 

"Getting to the semi-finals of the Champions League, as a wee boy you grow up watching these tournaments and you think what it's like to play in it. 

"We've just knocked out one of the best teams in Europe at the moment. Luckily we've managed to do that and we are in the semi-final.

"Hopefully I'll get a chance to play in the games and lead this club back to a final - and hopefully a sixth Champions League!"

LFCTV GO: Relive a memorable night at Etihad Stadium

Trailing 3-0 from the first leg at Anfield, City needed a big start if they were to stand any chance of overturning such a hefty aggregate deficit to make it through.

The hosts got just that as Gabriel Jesus fired home inside two minutes, and they went on to dominate the remainder of the opening 45 minutes, hitting the post through Bernardo Silva and seeing a Leroy Sane goal ruled out for offside.

Reflecting on a one-sided half and Liverpool's response in the second period, Robertson added: "The first half was tough going. We knew they were going to come out attacking and we had to ride our luck. 

"A couple of their chances could have gone in and if it did it could have been a different day, but we knew we couldn't play worse than that. 

"We defended quite well but we had to get the ball down and play our own game, and in the second half we managed to do that. 

"Mo [Salah] pops up with another goal and that's the tie over and we went on and won the game, which is brilliant. But over the two legs I think we deserved it and we are in the semi-final."

The numbers behind Andy Robertson's Man City performance

The Reds were much improved after the break, enjoying their most incisive periods of possession in the 10 minutes before Mohamed Salah netted the crucial equaliser that inspired an ultimately deserved win on the night. 

Robertson credited Jürgen Klopp's half-time team-talk with facilitating the turnaround, revealing that the German was a serene presence in the dressing room as he shared fresh tactical instructions.

He said: "He's one of those managers that keeps it all calm. He said what we needed to do better and it was basic, we knew what we had to do better. 

"We weren't winning second balls, which is key. We weren't keeping the ball, which is key, and we never created any chances really. 

"We had to push up that wee bit higher and our defence was maybe sitting back a wee bit and the gaps were too big. But we managed to rectify that in the second half, we went forward and Sadio's made an unbelievable run and Mo's finished it off. 

"I think the second half we started well. We got a couple of passes away, we kept possession and we put them under pressure, which we didn't do in the first half. 

"We never put them under pressure at all so it led to Walker and Laporte coming forward with the ball and there was just waves of attack. 

"That's not how we play and we need to go forward. We've got good attacking players and we managed to show that in the second half. 

"Gini, Millie and Chambo won most of their second balls in the second half and that was the big difference. The defence was a bit higher and then we created chances and we took them. If you take your chances you have more chance of winning.

"Bobby put the cherry on top and it was a great feeling. To beat Manchester City twice over the two legs and have a 5-1 aggregate - I don't think anyone expected that. We believed we could do it and we've managed to do it."
