Andy Robertson has made his quickfire return to the Liverpool first-team in a boost for Scotland ahead of this week’s squad announcement.
Scotland head coach Steve Clarke will announce his squad for World Cup 2022 qualifiers against Denmark, Moldova and Austria this week, likely Tuesday. Captain Robertson was a doubt after suffering ankle ligament damage in a Liverpool friendly versus Athletic Bilbao.
But less than two weeks after the knock which threatened his chances of making Clarke’s latest squad, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp named Robertson on the bench during a 2-0 win over Burnley on Saturday.
Robertson’s full return is expected to come against Chelsea next week, which will be just days before Scotland’s match with Euro 2020 semi-finalists Denmark. Scotland took five points from three opening games versus Austria, Israel and Faroe Islands.
Clarke will likely announce his squad for the triple-header on Tuesday. It’s the first time the squad have met since exiting the Euros at the group stages.
