The rise of Andy Robertson in just the last year has been massive for Liverpool Football Club.

Robertson was a £8m signing from Hull City in the summer of 2017 - one that really went under the radar as Mo Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain showed up for large fees.

The Scot then struggled to get in the side ahead of Alberto Moreno until he was finally given a proper chance when the Spaniard was injured, roughly a year ago.

And Robertson hasn't looked back from that moment - he was an integral part of Liverpool's run to the Champions League final and his pressing against Manchester City in the quarter-final is one of the highlights of last season.

The 24-year-old is now firmly the first choice left-back at Liverpool and with that likely to be the case for some time, it's difficult to imagine that Jurgen Klopp would swap him for anyone else in the position.

But no one should really be surprised that Robertson took the massive step-up in his stride as he's been doing it for his entire career.

He made his senior debut in 2012 for Queen's Park and made 34 appearances for the club in the Scottish Third Division that season.

Then came his first big step up: Dundee United signed him and asked him to be their first-choice left back in the Scottish Premiership.

Andy Robertson looked like a star in the making during his sole season in Scotland's top flight.

That seems like a big risk to take on a 19-year-old fourth-tier player but they couldn't have been more right as he picked up the Scottish Young Player of the Year award at the end of his first season.

And this week saw the Official SPFL Youtube channel post a highlights video of Robertson's effort that season - and it's safe to say you can see his tremendous potential.

That season would be Robertson's only one in the Scottish top flight before Hull signed him and brought him into the Premier League.

Three seasons later it's Liverpool and just one after that he's named Scotland's captain - who knows what the limit is for Robertson?

It just keeps getting better and better.
