Robertson admits he needs a rest

12th June 2019, 18:37 by Aidan Perkins

Andy Robertson is expected to recover quickly from a hamstring injury this summer to be fit for Liverpool's full pre-season schedule.

The left-back missed Scotland's 3-0 Euro 2020 qualifying defeat against Belgium on Tuesday with the hamstring injury but the problem was only a minor strain and he will now head off on holiday after a gruelling campaign for club and country.

Roberton, who played 36 of the Reds' 38 Premier League games and all but one of the Champions League matches all the way to the final, has had a fantastic season, racking up 13 assists from full-back.

The Scotland skipper has allayed any fears his injury is serious and is expected to be back fit and raring to go when Klopp welcomes his players back for pre-season training at the start of July.

Robertson wrote on Instagram: "Frustrating to miss last night's game and to end an incredible season on a small low!

"Now it's time to switch off, recover and get ready to do it all over again with club and country!"

Liverpool have announced nine summer games so far in the build-up to the new season, starting with a trip to local newly-promoted League One side Tranmere Rovers on July 11.
