injury scare. According to the player the sole reason for his absence from his country’s squad was for taking precautionary measures.  

"Yeah, I feel fit, feel ready to go," Robertson told the team’s official website. "I think I just got a tighter hamstring than usual against Man City, first and foremost.”

"Then obviously the game on Thursday for Scotland was a huge one and 120 minutes and penalties had taken its toll on me.”

"Sunday, I wasn't ready and just took a bit more time to recover from the game. But there weren’t any real concerns about it. It was just the [risk] of doing anything worse to the hamstring was quite high on Sunday and the manager had made the call not to play me. Wednesday, I was good to go.”

"Now I'm ready to go for Sunday, I feel fully fit, I feel ready. I know some people were quite concerned but I suppose with the amount of injuries we've had, people have become used to it. But I'm fully fit and ready to go."

Liverpool who have been dealing with a long list of injuries lately will not be affected believes Robertson.

"Nothing changes," he said. "We let everyone else focus on reading the long list of injuries and things like that."

"But the boys that are fit, we can only concentrate on the lads that are out on the training pitch and the lads that are fit, and to go and play the games."

"We have a big squad, we have a squad full of quality, we've got a good few young players that have already made massive strides and are probably ready to make the next step."

"If you train with us and you play with us, we believe, the manager and the coaches believe that you're good enough to play for Liverpool and that doesn't change."

"Look, obviously I'm gutted for everyone that's injured, especially the long-term ones. But part of us just need to do them proud on the pitch and try to focus on our own game – and get the results that will maybe help keep a smile on their face when they're going through a tough time."
