Andy Robertson was last night criticised for being at fault for one of England’s goals in Scotland’s 3-1 loss to their British rivals.

Speaking on BBC Sport, pundit Willie Miller slammed the Liverpool fullback and Scottish captain for being at fault for Jude Bellingham making it 2-0 to England in the first half.

Miller said: “Robertson knows he’s made an error. He’s got the ball under control. I don’t know what’s going through his mind as he passes it to Bellingham. He’s just froze and set it up so easily.”

With Scotland currently enjoying their best form in some years, losing to England in such damming fashion will sting for the Tartan Army.

And no player will feel the pain more than Robertson, who for a split-second looked average as the Liverpool defender allowed Bellingham to fire England into a comfortable lead.

Indeed, the moment will be a learning point for the 29-year-old, and Robertson knows he will have to respond the next time he wears the armband for Scotland on the international stage.

The armband has never been heavier for a nation like Scotland, who for once are starting to look like a cohesive squad after years of heartbreak and disappointment.

And for Robertson, the Liverpool defender knows that he has to respond with a bang the next time he puts on the Scotland shirt, especially with Steve Clarke’s side on the brink of Euro qualification.

With Scotland as good as they have been in some years, Robertson knows that he can respond in a big way next month, and the Liverpool star has the quality and the reputation to pull himself out of this mini slump.
