Andy Robertson is now set to miss Liverpool action this weekend through injury after failing to feature for Scotland during the international break.
The Scotland captain withdrew from Steve Clarke’s side with an ankle injury and now that is set to have an impact on his domestic season too.
Both he and Mohamed Salah were given time to rest during the break, but the weekend match against Crystal Palace looks to be coming too soon for either of them to feature (Sky Sports).
Robertson injury will be a concern for Liverpool and Scotland
Given how Robertson described the injury a couple of weeks, it doesn’t sound too promising for the Scotland captain. He told the Daily Record he had to miss Scotland duty as the injury could ‘ruin’ his season if he did play through it.
“I don’t want to pick up more injuries and ruin my season because of it,” he said. “The fact my ankle has swollen up again has made it easier to miss these games.”
Now it seems to be at a point where he can’t feature against Palace this weekend. It’s a blow for Jurgen Klopp as he’ll also be without Salah and Joel Matip too.
Hopefully the left-back can get back onto the pitch ASAP.
