Update on the injury of Andy Robertson

Due to an ankle injury sustained on Tuesday night against Northern Ireland, Scotland captain Andy Robertson could not be available for Liverpool for the start of the Premier League title run-in.

Clarke, the Scotland coach, provided an update about the injury. “He’s just come off the pitch, let the injury take its course,” he said, as quoted by The Athletic.

“He’ll go back to his club and they’ll assess it and hopefully it’s not too serious.”
