Video: Andrew Robertson on Kenny Dalglish and his ambitions with Liverpool

Following his £8 million move from Hull City last week, Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson answered a series of quick-fire questions with LFCTV.

The 23-year-old joined in a deal that could rise to £10 million, becoming Jurgen Klopp‘s third signing of the summer following Dominic Solanke and Mohamed Salah.

Robertson is expected to compete for a starting role with James Milner this season, and compared to the Reds’ vice-captain arrives as a relatively low-key name.

After his medical at Melwood, Robertson took part in a rapid Q&A to give supporters an insight into their new No. 26.

Given the scrutiny over new signings in modern football, it is imperative players make the right impression on joining, and Robertson certainly did when asked about the greatest ever Scotsman.

The defender opted for Kenny Dalglish, who is a legendary figure at both Liverpool and Celtic, where Robertson began his career.

The Glasgow side also feature in Robertson’s funniest moment in football, as he recalled their 1-0 Champions League victory over Man United in 2006.

“I used to be a season-ticket holder at Celtic,” he explained.

“When Shunsuke Nakamura scored the winner against Man United, I saw one of my close pals fall down 10 rows of stairs to celebrate the goal!”

Finally, Robertson was asked about his footballing ambition, saying “to be successful at whatever club you’re at and to get to the highest level.”

The Scotland international is likely to make his debut for the Reds in Saturday’s friendly clash with Hertha Berlin.
