Andy Robertson has issued a public apology after the Liverpool defender was at fault for Scotland conceding one of their three goals against England.

Speaking to BeIN Sports, the Tartan Army skipper admitted that he was at fault for Jude Bellingham’s first-half strike, with Robertson losing possession to allow the Real Madrid man to score.

With Scotland in fantastic form, it was unusual to see a player as good as Robertson concede an error as basic as what he did last night against the old enemy.

Yet Robertson came out with his hands up, with the Liverpool star opening up on the mistake publically after Scotland’s 3-1 loss to England at Hampden Park.

The Liverpool defender said: “The second goal is completely my fault. Obviously, that can’t happen, but you take it on the chin and try and react and in the second half we got ourselves back in the game.”

Robertson added: “I had to apologise to the team and the manager. I did that and I just tried to have a positive reaction in the second half and I thought I’ve done that but tonight I’ll obviously be kicking myself.”

Robertson can still lead Scotland to success

It would be an understatement to say that Scotland have never been better, with Steve Clarke’s side on the verge of qualifying for Euro 2024 and having one of their deepest talent pools in some years.

And for Robertson, last night’s error against England will be quickly forgotten about, with the Liverpool defender still the right man to lead Scotland into this exciting new era.

Indeed, the 29-year-old is a world-class fullback and a player Scotland have build their team around over the last few years, and not one fan will turn their back on Robertson just yet after last night’s display.
