John McGinn has an Instagram message for Andy Robertson

Even on international duty, Andy Robertson continues to uphold himself to the highest of standards.

Having recently starred in back-to-back wins and clean sheets for his club-side, Robertson led his country to an impressive result against Austria.

The Scotland captain was at his usual dependable best to help his country come back from behind twice to secure a 2-2 draw, and begin their World Cup qualifying campaign undefeated.

A stunning late equiliser from Aston Villa starlet John McGinn made all the difference, and Robertson called out his international teammate for praise on Instagram.

Robertson, who clocked up his 40th Scotland appearance last night, himself enjoyed a strong all-round display overall.

In total he enjoyed more touches (81) on the ball than any Scotland player. He also clocked up an impressive pass completion rate of 76 per cent.

Defensively, he was equally as effective. Robertson made two tackles, two interceptions and two clearances.

Scotland’s remaining two fixtures of the international break are against Israel and then The Faroe Islands.

Given his importance to Steve Clarke’s team, it’s likely that Robertson will feature in all three of Scotland’s World Cup qualifiers, before returning to Merseyside.

Hopefully, during their final match of the break, Robertson will be granted some form of a race period, with Liverpool back in action at the Emirates Stadium a week on Saturday.
