Liverpool sign Andrew Robertson to new long-term contract

Liverpool have signed left-back Andrew Robertson to a new long-term contract. The 24-year-old joined the Reds in the summer of 2017 from Hull. After platooning with Alberto Moreno in the opening stages of the 2017-18 season, Robertson quickly made the position his own.

Robertson has made 56 appearances in all competitions since joining the club 18 months ago. The left-back has started 20 games for Jurgen Klopp this season.

The defender has contributed six assists in 26 games in all competition with four coming in the Premier League.

Robertson has helped Liverpool keep 15 clean sheets in all competitions. He has helped the team concede the league’s lowest goals total in the league. The Reds have allowed just 10 goals.

Liverpool tie down stars to new deals

Andrew Robertson becomes the latest Liverpool player to sign a long-term deal. Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Jordan Henderson, Sadio Mane, and Joe Gomez have all signed new deals in the past 12 months.

His commitment shows just how far the Reds have come under Klopp and that the club’s stars are eager to remain at Anfield.

Robertson’s signing shows Liverpool’s recent strength in signing players from relegated teams as well. The left-back arrived at Anfield following Hull City’s relegation at the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

Liverpool paid just £8.1 million for Robertson. According to Transfermarkt, Robertson is now valued at £40.5m.

Thanks to the player’s success at Anfield, he was appointed Scotland captain earlier this year.
