Liverpool star Andy Robertson looks to have shaken off a hamstring injury in a boost for Steve Clarke and Scotland.

The Liverpool left-back was missing due to a tight hamstring in Scotland’s 1-0 UEFA Nations League defeat to Slovakia on Sunday, a first loss in nine.

Clarke did not want to push Robertson, further assessing him so that his tight hamstring didn’t become a ‘tear.’ It’s a move that looks to have proven beneficial.

Scotland’s manager says everyone is ‘fit and available’ for tonight’s Nations League meeting with Israel, a crucial game in which Scotland could take a big step closer to a World Cup 2022 play-off place.

It may, however, be of slight concern for Liverpool. Those at Anfield will likely watch through their fingers as Robertson plays another 90 minutes, bearing in mind the defensive injuries to the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

Stuart Armstrong would appear to be the only unavailable player for Scotland as he is suspended for the match.
