Andrew Robertson: City win the best night of my career

Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson has hailed Tuesday night’s Champions League victory over Manchester City as the best night of his career.

Jurgen Klopp’s side saw off City for the third time this season in mid-week, beating them 2-1 at The Etihad to secure a 5-1 aggregate victory in their Champions League quarter-final tie.

Robertson starred in both legs for the Reds as he continued what has been a brilliant debut season at the club following his £8 million move from Hull City last summer, and says helping his side knock out City on Tuesday was an unforgettable achievement.

“I would say so!” said Robertson when asked if reaching the Champions League semi-finals was the highlight of his already rapidly progressing career.

“Getting to the semi-finals of the Champions League, as a wee boy you grow up watching these tournaments and you think what it’s like to play in it.

“We’ve just knocked out one of the best teams in Europe at the moment. Luckily we’ve managed to do that and we are in the semi-final.”

Robertson however doesn’t want to success to stop there – saying he believes Liverpool current crop have what it takes to win Europe’s elite competition for the first time in over a decade.

“Hopefully I’ll get a chance to play in the games and lead this club back to a final – and hopefully a sixth Champions League!”
