Scottish left back Robertson made an instant positive impression during an assured City debut at QPR in August 2014, and established himself as a first team regular before injury curtailed his season. In the subsequent two seasons Robertson was a fixture in the City first XI, combining dogged defending (with the occasional blunder) with pacy forward running and the occasional goal – notably in the 2016 Championship play-off semi-final at Derby when he crashed in a late third goal to see off the Rams and help City return to Wembley and the Premier League.
Glaswegian Robertson was a junior at Glasgow Celtic but at the age of 15 he was discarded and signed for Queens Park. He made his senior bow for Queens Park in August 2012, which encouraged him to pursue a footballing career ahead of a university place. After one successful season at Hampden Park Andy signed for Dundee United and once again excelled, encouraging City to pay £2.85m for him in July 2014.
By July 2017 Robertson’s three high quality seasons at City had attracted the attention of bigger clubs than the relegated Tigers, and he moved to Liverpool for a £10m fee. After a cautious start Robertson’s form picked up during the early part of 2018, marking him out as one of the most influential attack-minded defenders in the upper echelons of the Premier League. As Jurgen Klopp’s gegenpress football took the Premier League by storm, Robertson’s rampaging runs down the left became a crucial supply line and by 2019/20 season, when Liverpool won the Premier League title, Robertson was often cited as one of the finest full back footballers in the world, a key part of a Champions League winning side in 2019 and captain of his country. A great story of success from humble beginnings, in which Hull City played a crucial role.
Robertson broke into the Scotland under-21 side while at Dundee United and made his senior debut a few months later, six days before his 20th birthday. He soon established himself as regular left back in the Scottish team.
