Andrew Robertson praised by Gordon Strachan

Published Add your comment

After claiming the opportunity to appear for his international side, Andrew Robertson has been labelled as a fine example by Scotland boss Gordon Strachan after securing his place in the national squad in the previous international break.

The 20-year-old was introduced to the Premier League in the summer when an impressive Hull City side snapped up the right-back for a bargain fee of £2.85 million in the summer.

And Robertson has certainly delivered the goods. He likes to burst forward with his uncontrollable pace before whipping a delicious ball into the middle as he has shown for the Tigers and now Scotland.


The former Dundee United defender actually made his initial breakthrough in the national side back in March when the he featured in a friendly against Poland but since that game, has never featured under Strachan until now, making two appearances in the last international break.

"If things go well for him you never know what might happen"

Robertson certainly likes to make an impression though. Still at the ripe age of 20, he has already made Premier League and international debuts, but the Scotsman has also been awarded with the SPFA Young Player of the Year commendation last season after a successful year with Dundee United in the SPFL.

Due to his noticeable burst in experience and quality, Strachan has been forced to select the Hull right-back once again in his Scotland side who face Republic of Ireland in a hugely anticipated European qualifier before the hostile friendly against England in Glasgow.

The Scotland gaffer hinted at a possible starting position for the 20-year-old in both upcoming international ties.

Man of the match

He told reporters: "If things go well for him you never know what might happen.

"Young Andrew Robertson joined us for an afternoon and played in the 11 versus 11 to work on certain things.

"After the game finished I asked the coaches their opinion on who played well and, apart from Scott Brown and James Morrison, he was man of the match."
