Gary Neville has praised Andy Robertson following his impressive debut campaign at Liverpool FC under Jurgen Klopp.

The Scottish defender signed for the Reds from Hull City in the summer transfer window last year and gradually made his way into the first team under Klopp at Anfield.

Robertson ended up making 22 Premier League appearances for Klopp’s men and scored his first top-flight goal for the Reds in the 4-0 win over Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

The 24-year-old also notched up five assists for his team-mates as he helped Liverpool FC to secure a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League table.

The left-back also played a role in helping Liverpool FC to reach the Champions League final after making five appearances in Europe’s elite club competitions this term.

Former Manchester United defender Neville says that he never doubted Robertson’s ability to push forward down the left, but he admits that his impressive defending has proved him wrong.

Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, former England star Neville said: “I always knew that he could go forward but I always questioned in the really big matches, would be able to step up?

“He’s got a big test in two weeks’ time but he’s definitely answered those big moments this season.”

Robertson will now be hoping to help Liverpool FC end the season on a positive note when the Reds take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev on Saturday 26 May.
