UNDERRATED Liverpool star earns comparison with Arsenal Invincible after scintillating form


Andy Robertson is the best Premier League full-back since Ashley Cole.

That’s according to former Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United forward Garth Crooks, who named the defender in his team of the week.

Liverpool thumped Bournemouth 3-0 on Saturday at Anfield , with Robertson producing a typically composed and diligent performance.

Although the headlines on Merseyside tend to be dedicated to Mohamed Salah and his striker partners for their goalscoring exploits, the Scot has slowly but surely made himself one of the first names on the team sheet for Jurgen Klopp.

And Crooks was equally effusive in his praise of the 24-year-old in his BBC column.

“I just love watching this kid play,” he said. “Apart from anything else, he has nerves of steel.


“The ball he played for Georginio Wijnaldum to score was just wonderful and the side-foot volley when Sadio Mane should have scored was just sensational.

“There is nothing more frustrating for a striker than a full-back who offers nothing going forward and I’ve played with enough to know.

“Robertson is a striker’s dream and the best I’ve seen since Ashley Cole.”

The rise of Robertson is nothing short of spectacular.

After being released by Celtic at under-15 level, the left-back moved to Queen’s Park in the Scottish Third Division.

After a move to Dundee, he earned a call-up to the national side before a move to Hull in 2014.

In 2017, he joined Liverpool for a reported £8million, playing the Champions League Final against Real Madrid in May, before becoming captain of Scotland in September.
