Robertson hamstring injury adds to Liverpool defensive troubles

Liverpool’s defensive troubles have worsened as left back Andy Robertson has now picked up a hamstring injury.

The reigning Premier League champions are already without Fabinho and Virgil Van Dijk.

Englishman Joe Gomez recently picked up a knee injury during England training.

Whilst speaking to reporters, Scotland manager Steve Clarke announced the new injury.

He said: “Andy Robertson is the most doubtful out of the ones who have a wee question mark over them.”

The 26-year-old is set to miss his country’s clash against Slovakia in the Nations League. He has been removed from the squad.

Robertson picked up the injury during Scotland’s huge victory over Serbia on Thursday.

They won via penalties to book their place at next summer’s European Championship.

The only negative from that famed night was the injury to their captain, who said that his hamstring seized up late on.

Speaking about potentially taking a penalty in the shoot-out, Robertson said: “I think I was next, but my hamstring had seized.

“When it goes to penalties you always back Marshy [David Marshall]. We’ve come so far as a squad and I’m proud of everyone. They’ve been through a lot – lots of criticism, a lot of negativity. I really hope everyone back home can see the positive side of this.

“In the 90 minutes. It’s come down to one of the best away performances I’ve been involved in. It shows you the strength we’ve got to come back from that, we stuck together throughout.

“I can’t wait for summer. It’s the most emotional I’ve been after the game.”

The news leaves Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp without another senior defender.

It means summer signing Kostas Tsimikas will likely start in their next Premier League match.

They face Leicester City on Sunday 22nd November.
