Andrew Robertson impressed on his first run out as a Liverpool player against Hertha Berlin on Saturday and he certainly hasn’t taken it for granted. 

Andrew Robertson’s Liverpool debut was a success in my humble opinion.

A 45 minute run out in the 3-0 win, solid on the back foot, very good going forward, almost notched up an assist and didn’t get made to look a fool in the same way Alberto Moreno had in the first half. Job well done ‘Robbo.’

To make it even better, it seems he enjoyed the occasion even more than we did.

“It was my first game since the start of May so it was good to get rid of the cobwebs,” he told LiverpoolFC.com.

“To pull on this shirt and play with the boys was an honour. Hopefully there’s many more to come. The boys did well in the first half and we had to wait patiently on the bench. But in the second half, I thought we controlled the game as well. The lads all dug deep and we got what we needed out of the game.”

For a man making his first appearance in Liverpool Red, Robertson looked immensely comfortable slotting into the left flank of his new side’s back four and hailed both a solid pre-season schedule and the support shown by the crowd as helping him settle quickly.

“The boys have been together longer than a few of us who came back late. We’re gelling in,” he added.

“Training has been intense, it has been good. It’s good to get a game, everyone enjoys playing games. It was good to come away with a win and a clean sheet.

“The Hertha fans were brilliant and the Liverpool fans in the corner were different class throughout the game. It was a good atmosphere to play in, a great stadium and they’re the games you want to play in.”
