Andy Robertson was one of the main components in Liverpool’s 2019-20 title winning side.
Released by Celtic at 15, the Scotland captain has a Champions League winners medal to go along with last season’s league title (Liverpool’s first in 30-years).
Ahead of the new season Robertson has done an exclusive interview with The Times.
Henry Winter asks the Scottish full-back if politicians provide enough for the people living in the UK.
“For me, no, But everyone can do better. Even though I’m active, I believe I can do better. The two words that everyone’s saying [during the pandemic] are ‘Marcus Rashford’. He made politicians overturn the decision [not to extend free school meals] because he wanted every kid to get fed. What he’s done was amazing, outstanding.”
This leads a huge prediction from Robertson, who thinks Rashford will get respect when he plays at Anfield next and once fans are allowed back into stadiums.
“Once the fans are back in, Marcus Rashford could be the first Man United player to get a standing ovation here. He’d definitely deserve it because thousands of families are getting fed now.”
Before Rashford forced the Government into a U-turn, Matt Hancock’s comments caused a lot of controversy in the football when he said footballers should do more to help, as per The Guardian.
Yet Rashford has done more than any of those suited charlatans.
Maybe the Liverpool fans will clap Rashford but they’ll be back booing him when he score the winner in the final minutes — after leaving Trent Alexander-Arnold look like a amateur on the ground.
