Scotland captain Andy Robertson says firing in front of goal for Liverpool is a challenge he is enjoying at Anfield.
The Scots captain has been his usual consistent best this season for Liverpool. They are currently eight points clear at the Premier League summit and safely through into the Champions League last 16.
They’ve had 19 different goalscorers this season, one of which is Robertson. He says helping out on the goal front is a collective responsibility he’s enjoyed dealing with.
He told the Liverpool Echo: “I have chipped in this season (against Aston Villa) after not last season and I would take that but it is good to spread it about.
“We cannot rely on the front three all the time. It is up to us to get goals as well.”
Can he bring it to Scotland?
Whilst the Reds man is eager to help bring goals to Liverpool, could it be something that is also utilised by Steve Clarke and Scotland? Robertson’s an attacking full-back known for bombing forward after all.
He did score one cracker in Clarke’s first game against Cyprus. Stepping up from about 25 yards out, the full-back slammed a shot into the corner.
It certainly would be handy if Robertson started chipping in with more goals for Scotland. John McGinn is the talisman right now with six in his last three. Without a proflic striker, goals are needed all over the park.
Perhaps Robertson could provide necessary goal contributions for Clarke’s side in the Euro 2020 play-offs next year.
