Liverpool and Scotland star Andy Robertson says he is fully over a hamstring knock he picked up on international duty.
The Liverpool left-back has fully written himself into Scottish football history. He skippered the nation to its first major tournament since 1998 in a 5-4 penalty shootout victory over Serbia last week.
Before heading away with Steve Clarke for an international triple-header, Robertson faced Manchester City with Liverpool. His hamstring was tight at the end of that match before it ‘seized’ in Belgrade.
It meant he was unable to play against Slovakia last Sunday but returned midweek against Israel. There were concerns that he may be over-exerting himself but the Scots captain is match-fit for the game against Leicester City.
“Yeah, I feel fit, feel ready to go,” the left-back said. “I think I just got a tighter hamstring than usual against Man City, first and foremost.
“Then obviously the game on Thursday for Scotland was a huge one and 120 minutes and penalties had took its toll on me.
“Sunday, I wasn’t ready and just took a bit more time to recover from the game. But there wasn’t any real concerns about it. It was just the [risk] of doing anything worse to the hamstring was quite high on Sunday and the manager had made the call not to play me. Wednesday, I was good to go.
“Now I’m ready to go for Sunday, I feel fully fit, I feel ready. I know some people were quite concerned but I suppose with the amount of injuries we’ve had, people have become used to it. But I’m fully fit and ready to go.”
