Scotland manager responds to fans’ concerns over Andy Robertson drinking

The Liverpool defender celebrated days before the big Scotland vs Ukraine match.

Scotland manager Steve Clarke has responded to fans’ concerns over Andy Robertson drinking beer at Liverpool’s end-of-season open-top bus parade.

Liverpool were celebrating what was an incredible season, winning two cups, but what could have been even sweeter had they picked up the Premier League or Champions League, which they failed to do at the final hurdle.

Robertson, like a number of Liverpool players, could be seen having a few drinks atop the bus, but he is in the unique position that he had a massive international game just days later.

Scotland take on Ukraine in a World Cup 2022 playoff semi-final, and they will need their captain to be at their very best if they are to get the job done against a strong Ukraine team.

The Scotland boss said: “Obviously Liverpool had a great season, although probably when they finished the last game against Real Madrid they didn’t feel like they’d had a great season.

“They had a great day out with their fans in Liverpool, some good images of Andy relaxing and enjoying himself. I think it was important for him to do that, it was important for him to enjoy it.

“Now he’s back up here and he’s ready to go for probably the biggest game of his captaincy.”

Scotland vs Ukraine

None of the footage of Robertson showed him looking worse for wear, but you can understand the Scottish fan’s concerns giving the importance of the game.

If Scotland win, they will take on their neighbours Wales in a winner-takes-all game to see who goes to the World Cup finals.

Kickoff between Scotland and Ukraine is at 7.45, and can be seen on Sky Sports.
