Liverpool star Andy Robertson will likely miss Scotland’s Nations League Group B match with Slovakia on Sunday.

Steve Clarke’s captain played 120 minutes on Thursday night as the Liverpool man lead the nation to a 5-4 penalty shootout triumph over Serbia, handing Scotland a major tournament spot for the first time since 1998.

Robertson said post-match that the reason he couldn’t take a dreaded spot-kick was that his hamstring had ‘seized.’ That’s understandable after 120 minutes of football but it’s not something he’s been able to shake off overnight.

Scotland boss Clarke has confirmed that the Liverpool ace will be a doubt for Sunday’s match with Slovakia with this hamstring issue.


It’s something he headed to the Scots camp with after the match against Manchester City.

But to avoid further injury, Robertson could be set to sit on the sidelines with this knock. It might be a worry for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who has watched key stars like Allison, Virgil Van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold amongst others suffer injury.

Manager Clarke said ahead of the Slovakia match: “Andy Robertson is the most doubtful out of the ones who have a wee question mark over them.”
