CHAMPIONS League winner Andy Robertson has repeated his desire to play for Celtic – as CQN told you SIXTEEN months ago.

The 28-year-old Scotland and Liverpool left-back said back in May 2021: “I would love to play for Celtic. I would love to pull on the Celtic shirt, of course I would.

“The time will come to make that decision, but I have a good length of time on my Liverpool contract.”

Robertson, who missed the 3-0 UEFA Nations League midweek win over Ukraine through injury and will also sit out tomorrow’s visit of the Republic of Ireland and Tuesday’s return against the Ukrainians in Krakow, has updated his intentions.

HAVING A BALL…Andy Robertson in action as Scotland international skipper.

The Jurgen Klopp Anfield favourite admitted: “Every time I watch Celtic, I consider it.

“When you watch them and see a packed Celtic Park – as a fan you always have that dream. Ideally, I want to finish my career here at Liverpool.

“If I can stay at the top of my game, at the top of the tree my whole career, that’s the route I want to go down.

“But also, when I look at Celtic and when I was growing up, I was thinking I wanted to give them my best years.”

Robertson, speaking to the Daily Record, added: “When I was at Queen’s Park I had a dream of still playing with Celtic and always dreamed of giving my best years to Celtic.

WAITING GAME…Andy Robertson dreams of pulling on the Celtic jersey.

“And now I don’t want to go as a 34 or 35-year-old old guy that my uncles start hating on me because I can’t move any more! Time will tell. I’m very much a person who lives in the moment.

“I don’t look too far ahead and I don’t often look back. There will be a time for that.”

Robertson was released by Celtic as a 15-year-old – apparently because he was “too small” – and relaunched his fledgling career at Hampden before moving to Dundee United and then onto Hull City.

Klopp brought him to Merseyside in an £8million deal in July 2017 and the adventuous left-back is under contract until the summer of 2026.

He will be back in action in Glasgow when Liverpool play Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side in the Champions League Group A encounter at Ibrox on October 12, eight days after the first meeting at Anfield.
