Scotland captain Andy Robertson is set to return to action for Liverpool this month against Chelsea on August 28th ahead of three crucial World Cup qualifiers (Athletic).

The Scotland left-back was a major doubt for World Cup 2022 qualifying matches against Denmark, Moldova and Austria next month after ankle ligament damage in a Liverpool friendly against Athletic Bilbao.

He was pictured in light training for Liverpool this week after missing the opening weekend of the English Premier League season. It’s now been reported that his comeback could be next week when Jurgen Klopp’s side host Chelsea at Anfield. The Scots captain is available to return to full training.

It would be a big boost for Scotland head coach Steve Clarke ahead of three defining qualification matches, taking five points from the opening three matches against Austria, Israel and Faroe Islands. Robertson played all 38 Liverpool league matches last season and captained the country at Euro 2020.

There is concern for fellow Scotland defender Andy Considine after he was stretchered off in Aberdeen’s Europa Conference League play-off first-leg defeat to Qarabag with a nasty looking knee injury.
