Scotland star Andy Robertson should be fit to return to action for Liverpool this weekend after he limped out of the 2-0 win over Denmark at Hampden on Monday night.

Robertson appeared to pick up a hamstring injury, being replaced for the final stages of the win, sparking fears he could be set for a stint on the sidelines after Scotland secured their place as one of the seeded sides in the draw for the World Cup playoffs.

Anfield boss Jurgen Klopp praised the Scotland skipper for making the “right decision” in coming off rather than trying to play through it as he confirmed there’s a “good chance” he’ll be able to return for the Premier League side.

“Robbo was lucky, we can probably say. It was a little bit DOMS (Delayed onset muscle soreness), the intensity of all the games he played probably, rather than anything else,” Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com on Thursday.

 

“He was smart enough to [make] the right decision, he went off early, which he usually is not doing. But in this case it was absolutely right, and so there’s a good chance that he can be involved at the weekend.”

Robertson will face Scotland teammate Kieran Tierney and Arsenal this weekend as the two left-backs go head-to-head days after starring together for Steve Clarke’s side at Hampden.
