Andy Robertson tells personal story on how Champions League drama impacted him

Uefa’s claims seem more suspicious by the minute.

Andy Robertson has discussed exactly how the ugly scenes outside the Champions League final impacted his family and friends who were in attendance.

Kickoff was delayed on a number of occasions, as large amounts of fans were not being let into the stadium in time.

Uefa released a statement where they blamed the fans who arrived at the stadium without tickets, or with fake ones, something which Liverpool have disputed.

Robertson, who played the full match on Saturday night, said that people who he personally gave tickets to were unable to make it into the stadium.

He said: “You have to have some sympathy because this was thrown on Paris kind of the last minute with all that has gone on with Russia.

“But as a Uefa competition it is the biggest game in world football and it should be organised a lot better.

“Things like that should not be happening and definitely the force used by certain authorities should not be happening either.

“Pretty much all our families were affected, I think. I can only speak for my family and all I know is everyone is safe and that’s my main priority. I hope all the fans are safe.

“My tickets were through the club and someone told one of my mates he had a fake ticket, which I assure you it wasn’t because it was obviously through me.”

Robertson’s claim that tickets he gave to family and friends didn’t work goes some way in refuting Uefa’s claim that last night’s ugly scenes were brought about by Liverpool fans showing up with fake tickets.

Meanwhile, former Ireland internationals David Meyler and Jason McAteer also shared their experiences on the night, with the latter revealing his son was attacked and his wife was mugged.
