Andy Robertson created some Scottish footballing history last night by helping Liverpool win the Club World Cup.

A terrific year for the Anfield side was capped off in Qatar. After winning the Champions League and the Super Cup earlier this year, they capped off the continental treble for the first time in English football history.

Following a hard fought battle over 120 minutes with Brazilian side Flamengo, Liverpool won the Club World Cup 1-0 thanks to Roberto Firmino. It allowed Scotland captain Robertson to get his hands on more silverware.

It also allowed him to create some more Scottish football history. He became the first Scotsman since Scott Booth to lift the trophy, joining Booth as the only Scottish players to have lifted the cup.


Booth lifted his with Borussia Dortmund in 1994. Firmino’s extra time winner ensured that the Scots captain would have a third winners medal of 2019.

Robertson and Liverpool will now go into 2020 on a high. With a game in hand, they sit ten points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Robertson’s main aim now will surely be to help deliver that EPL crown from such a strong position.
