Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has withdrawn from the Scotland squad due to injury.
The 25-year-old has had to pull out of Steve Clarke’s squad due to an ankle injury – similar to the one that Mo Salah is nursing – and he’s already been deemed a doubt for Liverpool’s game at Crystal Palace on Saturday 29th November. However, there’s no official confirmation of his status at this present time so let’s see what filters out over the next few days before we start flapping.
Liverpool will travel to Selhurst Park with an 8-point lead at the top of the Premier League table and will be desperately hoping that Robertson will be available for selection.
As a result of this injury, Robertson will miss Scotland’s UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers against Cyprus and Kazakhstan. He won’t travel to Cyprus for Saturday’s Group I match, but the Liverpool player will stay with the squad during the build-up.
Robertson joined Liverpool in July 2017 from Hull City for an initial fee of £8million. He has since established himself as one of the best defenders in the world.
He is under contract with Liverpool until 2024 and the Reds have the option of a further year that they can bolt on to that. He is represented by ProLegal.
