Adrian Durham called out following Andy Robertson claim on talkSPORT

TalkSPORT pundit Adrian Durham has been slammed for his comments regarding Liverpool’s Andy Robertson after being shut down by former SPFL star David Weatherston.

Durham, 50, recently caused an online stir after naming a ‘team of the decade’ that included Champions League winner Robertson.

The 25-year-old Liverpool left-back was included in Durham’s Scottish top-flight select on Twitter which caused an online stir following a few controversial calls by the talkSPORT radio host.

Robertson began his career at Queen’s Park before joining Dundee United in 2013. Durham included the former Hull City full-back despite only making 36 appearances in the Scottish Premiership before heading to the Premier League.

Durham accused radio guest Weatherston of having ‘no idea’ who Robertson was and also calling him ‘pathetic’ which raised a swift and instant reply from the former Falkirk star.

He said: “Hahaha. Played against him, came through the QP system before him, known him since he was a 17-year-old kid. You, sir, are an idiot.”

What RTK has to say

It isn’t a surprise to see Durham being left lost for words when questioned on some of his controversial football opinions. Despite this, Robertson is one of the greatest talents to ever come out of the Scottish Premiership and deserves to be in the TOTD.

Despite only featuring in the division for just one season, Robertson has since gone on to claim a continental treble after adding the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup to their Champions League triumph in June.

He has started in back-to-back Champions League finals and recently followed in the footsteps of Anfield icons Kenny Dalglish and Graeme Souness to become captain of the Scotland national team.

There is perhaps only one player to have seen a greater gargantuan rise since leaving the Premiership than Robertson and they both now share a dressing room.

Virgil van Dijk was at Celtic from 2013 to 2015 after winning the league twice with the Hoops before also trading Scotland for England. The Netherland’s captain has gone on to become the best defender in world football and has been one of the most transformative signings in Premier League history.
