Honours: Premier League (2020), Champions League (2019), UEFA Super Cup (2019), FIFA Club World Cup (2019)
Andy Robertson’s rise from amateur football to Premier League and 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 still playing part-time for Queen’s Park in his native Glasgow as recently as 2013.
During his first two seasons with Liverpool - following a transfer from Hull City in the summer of 2017 - Robertson progressed from squad player to key component in a team that followed up reaching the European Cup final in 2018 by winning the tournament while posting a remarkable 97-point domestic season a year later.
Then, in 2019-20, he was again crucial as Jürgen Klopp’s side added three more major trophies to their collection: the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and, of course, the Premier League.
An indefatigable source of quality, energy and industry on the left flank, Robertson - who was appointed Scotland skipper in September 2018 - missed just five of the Reds’ 97 Premier League and Champions League matches across both 2018-19 and 2019-20.
And his status as a creative force for Liverpool is underlined by the fact he registered a combined total of 23 Premier League assists in 2018-19 and 2019-20.
Robertson’s journey to the pinnacle of English, European and world club football saw him join Dundee United from Queen’s Park, before his first taste of Premier League football came with Hull in 2014-15.
His consistency continued as he tallied a further 50 appearances for the Reds in 2020-21 as a third-place finish was secured - and on August 24, it was announced Robertson had signed a new long-term contract with the club.
