Andrew Henry Robertson is a Scottish football player who plays as a left back for Liverpool and captains the Scottish national team. He was born on March 11th, 1994 in Glasgow and grew up as a Celtic fan. He spent his young footballing years playing for his high school and managed to get into Celtic’s youth academy from which he was soon released for being too small.
Robertson then moved to Queens Park in 2009 where he spent three years in their youth team. He was close to giving up football and focusing on college when he was called into the first team in 2012. After a year with the club, he left for Dundee United. Once again, he only spent a year at the club before his talent was recognized and he was bought by Hull City.
Hull City was a member of the Premier League at the time and Robertson got his chance to shine on a bigger stage. He quickly became an irreplaceable member of the first team at Hull and after three years he made transfer news when he was signed by Liverpool.
In his three years at Anfield, Robertson grew into a world-class player and he is now considered to be one of the best left back in the world. He won the Premier League with the club in 2020 and played in two consecutive Champions League finals, winning the one in 2019.
Robertson is arguably the best Scottish player at the moment and he is the captain of the national team. After making his debut in 2014, he collected 40 appearances and helped Scotland qualify for Euro 2020 – for the first time since 1996. Robertson was voted into the Champions League Squad of the Season in 2019 and named into the PFA Team of the Year on two occasions.

Despite his struggles early in the career and the fact that he was rejected by his favourite club when he was a kid, Robertson persevered and became one of the best left-backs in the world. His humble beginnings in lower Scottish leagues are a perfect example of good things that come to those who don’t give up.

At the moment, Robertson seems happy at Liverpool and we will probably have to wait a while until his next transfer, if he ever decides to leave Liverpool.
