Liverpool have found their first-choice left-back in Andy Robertson.

The Scotland international was granted his chance when Alberto Moreno suffered an injury last December - and he hasn’t looked back since.

Robertson’s form has left Moreno scrambling for minutes.

It was his performance in the 4-3 win against Manchester City in January that really caught the eye of Liverpool supporters.

And he hasn’t let the attention get to his head, playing just as well in Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

Robertson’s rise from playing for Queen’s Park in Scotland to the final of the Champions League has been nothing short of remarkable.

Liverpool signed him in the summer of 2017 following three seasons at Hull City, where he was tipped for big things by Hatem Ben Arfa.

The Frenchman joined Robertson at Hull on a loan deal in September 2014. He later reflected on his spell with the Tigers, reserving special praise for the Scottish defender.

“To be honest they’re not very good,” Ben Arfa told French journalist Julian Laurens about the Hull team he played in. 

“But there’s one who can potentially be super, super good, and that’s Robertson.”

It’s safe to say that Ben Arfa’s prediction has come true.

Robertson is quickly becoming a fan favourite, Liverpool icon Steven Gerrard admitting earlier in the year that supporters will always appreciate a player who gives his all.

“He's done terrifically well since coming in and the fans have taken to him,” Gerrard said about Robertson.

“It's not just about Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres, the top players that come, the fans love someone who gives 100 per cent.

"He's come in and he's a very humble kid and gives it his all every game.”

So long as Robertson keeps working hard, only good things will come to him.

The left-back, recently appointed the new captain of the Scotland national team, has already provided four assists in 12 matches this season.
