Former teammate revels in Andy Robertson's rise to stardom

Former Dundee United teammate Aidan Connolly has spoken about how proud he is of Andy Robertson and how it’s surreal to watch Robbo play with Liverpool.

When Liverpool signed Robertson from Hull City shortly after they were relegated from the Premier League, suffice it to say that there weren’t many massive cheers from the majority of Reds’ fans.

On the whole, the fanbase was disappointed not to see Benjamin Mendy join the club. The Frenchman was also a target for Jürgen Klopp but ultimately joined the eventual league champions in Manchester City.

One of Robertson’s teammates at Dundee United, Aidan Connolly, has revealed that he watched the Champions League final with a couple of the lads from United.

“I actually watched the Champions League final at John Souttar’s house,” Connolly revealed.

“A lot of the old Dundee United boys like Ryan Gauld came too so it was good. They are all great lads and we have a lot of good memories from our time at the club and sharing a flat.

“I have hardly seen them for the two years I was down south [turning out for York City] but we all went to Soapy’s [Souttar] house and it was just like old times.

“I thought Andy was brilliant in the final but it was just a bit weird that we had all played with him and he is now at that level. It is surreal, unbelievable – like a dream. I’d imagine it is like a dream for him as well!

“You just didn’t expect it when we were at Dundee United but his career has just gone up and up – it is brilliant. Andy is just a really nice lad and down to earth. It just shows you what can happen in football.”

After arriving last summer for £8million, Robertson has quickly become a fan favourite at Anfield and was pivotal in Liverpool’s progression to the Champions League final last season.
