Video: Andy Robertson Morphs Into Classic No9 For First Champions League Goal

Video: Andy Robertson Morphs Into Classic No9 For First Champions League Goal

Andy Robertson might be considered as one of the best left-backs in European football but the Scotland captain morphed into a classic No9 to score his first Champions League goal tonight.

The 25-year-old former Dundee United man is usually the man setting-up his team-mates after completing one of his trademark lung-bursting runs down the left flank, but tonight Robertson was the recipient and showed-off just how calm a finisher he can be in-front of goal.

Liverpool began the defence of their Champions League crown at Anfield against RB Salzburg, and Sadio Mane bagged the opening goal after just nine minutes – and Robertson popped up in an unfamiliar position to nab a goal of his own after 25 minutes:

Classic Liverpool. A pretty brilliant move, eh?

How highly do you rate Robertson in terms of being an elite player? Could he really be considered the out-and-out best left-back in European football at the moment?
