Liverpool Football Club have announced that Andrew Robertson has signed a new long-term deal.
The 24-year-old defender has been rewarded with a new 5-year contract on improved terms following swift negotiations.
Speaking at his delight at extending his stay further, Robertson told the offal: “As soon as the club came to me, it was a no-brainer for me – I want to stay here, so as soon as they put an offer on the table it was signed as quickly as that.
“It was a pretty easy contract for me and I’m sure for the club as well. We both agreed very quickly, that’s why it’s been done so quickly.
“Getting to know the lads and working with all the staff at Melwood has been a pleasure. The best thing about work is when you love coming in every day – and that’s what I do here. I am glad I have extended my stay and hopefully we have a lot of good days ahead.”
Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp added: “I think of all the contract renewals I have been involved with, this one was done in almost record time.
“It’s fair to say Robbo didn’t hesitate for even a second when we spoke about extending his stay at our club for longer.
“I remember when we signed him back in the summer of 2017, I spoke a lot about ‘his story, his journey’ and how much I loved it and thought it pointed to the type of person and player he would be for us. He has exceeded these expectations.
“He might be from Glasgow originally, but everything about him screams Liverpool.
“It has been fantastic to see him grow, develop and improve. It was not the easiest of starts for him maybe, because we are blessed with another fantastic left-back in Alberto Moreno. He had to be patient – he had to be ready when his chance came and his progression since is an example to any player joining us.
“Everyone knows about his personality, on and off the pitch, but maybe we are guilty at times of overlooking his quality. Ask those who play against him – be it matchday or training – and they speak about his technical and tactical qualities, just as much as his character and heart.
“Our supporters have fallen in love with him, he has fallen in love with them – and both he and his amazing young family are very much at home in Liverpool.
“It’s fantastic this will now be their home for even longer.”
