New injury nightmare for Liverpool with Robertson out of Scotland's Nations League clash


Andy Robertson Liverpool 2020-21

Andy Robertson has not been included in the Scotland squad for their Nations League encounter with Slovakia.

In his post-match interview, Robertson said his hamstring seized late in the gamebut that he was next in line to take a penalty, only for David Marshall to repel Aleksandar Mitrovic from 12 yards to book Scotland’s place at a major tournament for the first time since the 1998 World Cup in France.

Scotland coach Steve Clarke revealed ahead of the game with Slovakia on Sunday that Robertson was a doubt on account of his hamstring injury.

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

The team to face Slovakia in Trnava that was confirmed on Sunday afternoon failed to include Scotland’s captain, who did not feature among the list of substitutes either.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be monitoring the situation, as left-back Robertson is a key member of his side.

Klopp is already without long-term injury victim Virgil van Dijk, who was joined in the treatment room by fellow central defender Joe Gomez who damaged a knee on international duty with England.

With Trent Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho also side-lined, Klopp is facing the prospect of taking on Leicester City after the international break without any of his first choice back line.

Klopp will be hopeful that Robertson has been left out as a precaution but will know more in the coming days.

After the Nations League game with Slovakia, Scotland travel to Israel in the same competition.Klopp will hope that Robertson does not make the long trip to Israel for Wednesday's game, which comes four days ahead of the Foxes’ visit to Anfield in the Premier League.
