Liverpool and Scotland star Andy Robertson believes he and Arsenal ace Kieran Tierney sent a message to the doubters on Wednesday night.
The pair both notched assists, the Arsenal man with three of them, as Scotland beat Faroe Islands 4-0. It moved Scotland into second place in the World Cup qualifying group, coming off the back of debate over whether Tierney and Robertson could feature in the same 3-5-2 system. But the Liverpool left-back thinks they’ve sent a message.
Robertson said: “KT was different class – three assists. Backing it up, helping me out, overlapping, always giving me options. People who say we can’t play together maybe got proven wrong. A lot gets said about me and KT, but we just get on with it.
“Now KT’s fully fit and flying at Arsenal, he showed that in the three games this week. I think since the Serbia game we’ve linked up pretty well down that left-hand side. When he goes, I sit and he always gives us an option and I always try and help him out defensively and going forward.
“We are different players, we play the game differently and tonight he was different class. It’s pleasure to play in this team and hopefully there’s a lot of big things to come from us.”
