Stephen Warnock has lavished praise on Liverpool FC left-back Andy Robertson, who has excelled since moving to Merseyside.

Robertson has been so influential for his club that he was named captain of the Scottish national team last week.

Warnock also occupied the left-back at Liverpool FC and so he understands the rigours Robertson faces.

“He’s such a good player and he’s been brilliant since he arrived; he has made himself indispensable,” Warnock told Goal.

“He’s got everything, he’s good at defending, his delivery is one of the best in the league, he’s quick, aggressive and he suits the way Liverpool play completely.

“I’m made up for him. It’s very difficult to become a crowd favourite as a full-back, but he’s got that. He has won everyone over so quickly.

“He’s the Scotland captain now, which is great for him.

“He’s proven he can do it at the highest level.”

The 24-year-old Robertson first joined English football in 2014 when he moved from Dundee United to Hull City for a fee believed to be in the region of £2.85m.

After three seasons on Humberside, Robertson moved to Liverpool FC at the start of last season for £8m.

He was originally signed as an understudy to Alberto Moreno, but after an injury to the Spaniard at the start of last season, Robertson became a starter.

He took the opportunity with both hands and quickly became one of Liverpool FC’s most influential players.

Along with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool FC’s full-backs play a key role for manager Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp likes to have full-backs who can both attack and defend, with the athleticism to be responsible for both simultaneously.

Robertson has come to embody Klopp’s idea in a full-back, as Warnock rightly points out, the Scotsman is equally productive in attack and defence for Liverpool FC.
