Andrew Robertson says his goal is to “create more history” after signing a new long-term deal at Liverpool (4/1 Premier League Outright).
The 26-year-old has extended until the summer of 2026 and joins Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Alisson and Virgil van Dijk in agreeing fresh terms at Anfield.
Robertson moved to Merseyside in July 2017 from Hull City and has gone on to make 177 appearances, winning both the Champions League and Premier League along the way.
The Scotland captain’s 2021-22 is still to get going after an ankle injury suffered in the pre-season friendly against Athletic Bilbao ruled him out of the Reds’ opening league wins over Norwich and Burnley.
However, the former Dundee United man has been named in the Scotland squad for the September World Cup qualifiers and has assured the Liverpool (9/1 Champions League Outright) faithful that his current setback is “nothing too major”.
Robertson admits that the chance to pursue silverware is what drives him on and he is keen to play his part as Jurgen Klopp’s side continue penning their own chapter in the club’s illustrious history.
“I know a lot of people in this training ground just now are people to look forward and people [who want] to create more history, more stories,” he told the club website. “Hopefully people get bored of me when I’ve retired and I can sit down for hours and hours and tell them about all the stories!
“They’re certainly building up but I want to make more and obviously hopefully starting with this season. We want to achieve more, we want to bring hopefully more trophies, more happiness to this club.
“The only way of doing that is by working hard and having the same application that we have done since day one.”
Greek defender Kostas Tsimikas has deputised in Robertson’s absence and could again take on the left-back duties on Saturday when Liverpool face potential title rivals Chelsea on the teatime kick-off (Match Betting – Liverpool 6/4, Draw 12/5, Chelsea 19/10).
