Scotland national team captain and Liverpool defender Andy Robertson reveal his ‘determination’ to play for Scotland. This comes after Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp had ‘warned’ the Scottish to be ‘sensible’, as Liverpool face a ‘crucial’ run of matches.
Andy Robertson insisted himself to be in contention for Scotland’s friendly matches despite showing ‘injury concerns’
The Andy Robertson Saga
Andy had to sit out for Scotland’s friendly versus Poland last week, as he was showing symptoms of an ‘illness’. He is pretty ‘confident’ to play in Scotland’s next match against Austria.
The Liverpool player also discussed on having spoken to the club’s manager Jurgen Klopp, in relation to his ‘health’ and ‘managing’ his international commitments.
With Liverpool having a ‘tough’ run of matches in three competitions including facing ‘league leaders’ Man City twice in quick succession. The manager would definitely not want another sideline for the club, after right-back, Trent Alexander-Arnold had already been ‘out-injured’ for sometime.
Robertson’s statement on ‘representing’ Scotland
I love playing games, I don’t want to be sitting in my house if I don’t have to be, I am fit and well and am looking forward to the games.
I love coming away here, I love playing games with Scotland and meeting up with the boys. Obviously, I am captain as well. I am looking forward to hopefully another cap tomorrow and then will go back to Liverpool fresh and good to go for the run-in.
I wanted to come and as soon as I felt better I was ready to come up. I wanted to make Thursday, but it came too soon for me. Luckily, this game was coming around and I look forward to tomorrow.

He went on to discuss the ‘talks’ with the club manager
It is a discussion, of course it is, it is always interesting, The manager of Liverpool supports the boys who go away on international duty, he knows how important it is for all of us.
He wants us to be sensible of course, but he knows how important it is to us, just like every Liverpool game, and we always make ourselves available for them. He will probably be happy that I have only played one game and not two.
He exclaimed that he would go back to Liverpool with a ‘fresh body’ and help the team in the crucial matches ahead.
With Liverpool still in contention of ‘winning’ three competitions, he would look to help the team in achieving that. Although the Scotland matches would also be interesting, as it is their path to the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
