Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is delighted with their swoop for Hull City fullback Andrew Robertson.

Just four years ago, Robertson was earning a living as a supermarket cashier and working at Hampden Park while playing in the fourth tier of Scottish football with amateur outfit Queen’s Park.

For Klopp, the never-say-die attitude displayed by the full-back en route to Anfield shows that there is even more to come.

“For Andrew this is another big step on what has been a quite incredible personal journey in a very short space of time,” he told

“I love his story; where he has come from professionally to reach this point.

“When you speak to him it is clear why he makes his progress. He has a burning love for playing football – he really loves the game.

“His attitude is outstanding – absolutely outstanding. His talent and skills – also very, very good.

“He has experience of this competition, the Premier League, and he has the mentality and quality to get even better.

“I know our environment will benefit him and help him push himself even more than he has already. This is a player who does not limit his ambition, I think.”
