This will be a sight for sore eyes!

Andy Robertson has been declared fit and will travel with the squad for Wednesday night’s League Cup clash with Fulham.

The left-back has been sidelined since October due to the dislocated collar bone he sustained while on international duty with Scotland.

Pepijn Lijnders declared during his pre-match press conference that Robertson “will travel” to Craven Cottage, adding that the Scotland skipper joked on Tuesday morning about having his tracksuit with him in training.

The 29-year-old has not featured for the Reds since the 2-2 draw away to Brighton over three months ago, and the subsequent injury to deputy Kostas Tsimikas has left the squad short at the back.

Whether he features against the Lilywhites remains to be seen, but it is great to be able to welcome him back into the fold!

Lijnders also revealed that both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dominik Szoboszlai are nearing returns, but Fulham will come too soon for those two.
