Andy Robertson became the newest name on the growing list of Liverpool players who have captained their country when he led out Scotland during the international break.

Appointed skipper by national team boss Alex McLeish on Monday last week, the Reds left-back helped guide the Scots to victory in his first competitive match with the armband, following a friendly defeat to Belgium a few days earlier.

Robertson's Scotland bounced back from Friday's home defeat against the World Cup 2018 semi-finalists to beat Albania 2-0 at Hampden Park on Monday in their inaugural match of UEFA's new Nations League competition.

The 24-year-old is the sixth Liverpool player to captain Scotland, following in the footsteps of Sir Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Alex Raisbeck, Jimmy McDougall and Tommy Younger.

But he's not the only player in the current Liverpool squad to don the armband on the international stage.

Robertson can compare notes with six of his first-team colleagues at Anfield.

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk captains Netherlands

Liverpool centre-back Virgil van Dijk was appointed Netherlands captain by Dutch boss Ronald Koeman, whom he worked under during his time at Southampton, in March 2018.

In his first outing as skipper, the LFC No.4 lined up against a very familiar face at Amsterdam's Johan Cruyff Arena.

The Oranje lost 1-0 to an England team led by Van Dijk's club captain, Jordan Henderson.

Liverpool midfielder Henderson had been handed the armband for the first time by Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate four months earlier, for a World Cup qualifier against Slovenia in Ljubljana.

The Reds No.14 has led out his nation on six occasions to date, including England's final World Cup 2018 warm-up match against Costa Rica, although Harry Kane assumed the role full-time for the tournament in Russia.

Henderson's fellow Liverpool midfielder James Milner has also captained the Three Lions.

The LFC No.7 skippered Roy Hodgson's England for a friendly against the Netherlands at Wembley in March 2016. He announced his retirement from international football in August of that year after winning 61 caps.

Current Reds starlet Joe Gomez was named skipper of Aidy Boothroyd's Young Lions for their 2019 UEFA European U21 Championship qualification campaign.

"He's just one of those blokes who you think 'I could be in the trenches with you'," Boothroyd said after handing Gomez the armband in August last year.

The Liverpool defender, 21, led the England U21 side to two wins and a draw in Group 4 before being called up to Southgate's senior squad.

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane captains Senegal at the World Cup

After half-a-century of games for the Senegal national team, Sadio Mane was handed the armband by head coach Aliou Cisse in June 2018 for a World Cup warm-up match against Croatia in Osijek.

The Liverpool forward retained the captaincy for the first two matches of the finals in Russia, leading the Lions of Teranga to a 2-1 win over Poland and scoring in a 2-2 draw with Japan.

Mane's close friend and Liverpool teammate Naby Keita has enjoyed a similar honour with Guinea.  

The Reds No.8 first captained his home nation in the penultimate match of their already unsuccessful World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign and it proved to be an eventful match for the 23-year-old midfielder.

Keita, who in August, had agreed a deal to join Liverpool ahead of the 2018-19 season, scored the opening goal in the October clash with Tunisia but was sent off in the 94th minute of a 4-1 defeat.

Suspended for the final qualifier against the Democratic Republic of the Congo, he returned to action under new manager Paul Put on Sunday and was named skipper for Guinea's first competitive match under the Belgian.

Playing in an advanced midfield role, Keita led the Syli Nationale to a 1-0 win over the Central Africa Republic in their first match of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign.
