Manchester United technical director Darren Fletcher says Scotland and Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson ‘has been a great captain’ for the national team.

Fletcher works behind the scenes at Manchester United but was once Scotland captain, falling just short of leading the nation to a first major tournament since 1998. Robertson has managed that off the back of success at Liverpool, taking Scotland out at Euro 2020 against Czech Republic, although it did not end well as the nation lost 2-0.

It means difficult tests against England and Croatia leave Scotland with a tough task of getting out of Group D at Euro 2020. But the Manchester United technical director believes the Liverpool left-back has been outstanding for the country (BBC): “He’s been fantastic and what he has gone on to achieve has been brilliant.

“He came into the squad with a real quiet confidence and showed what he’s about. He’s grown into it and he has been a great captain. He is inspirational. I am delighted for him to be the man to lead Scotland into a major tournament but I know he has a good group of guys behind him.

 

“Andy Robertson is a great leader and this group really has something special. But Andy is at the forefront of that.”
