Scotland captain and Liverpool star Andy Robertson has sent a message to the Tartan Army after Scotland matches for 2020 come to an end.
The Liverpool man has played twice in the past week for the national team, leading Scotland to Euro 2020 with victory over Serbia last week.
After heroics in Belgrade, Scotland suffered some disappointment, remaining in Nations League B after defeats to Slovakia and Israel with a win in just one of these games enough to secure promotion.
It’s a blow in Scotland’s quest for both World Cup 2022 and Euro 2024 qualification, as well as an opportunity missed to play some of Europe’s elite in League A.
Robertson has sent a message after an emotional three games in six days: “Not how we wanted to end it but this has been the most significant international break in 22 years.
“We can be proud of what we have achieved. Well done lads.”
Robertson now heads back to Liverpool but there will be some concern for the left-back at Anfield. He missed Sunday’s game with Slovakia via a tight hamstring, Steve Clarke not wanting to push him into a ‘tear.’
But he did push him through Wednesday’s match in Israel, Robertson playing 90 minutes. Now the Scotland captain will have to go again on Sunday when the Reds face Leicester City.
