He broke into the Aberdeen side under Derek McInnes, and quickly established himself as a first-team regular.
Naturally, his form attracted attention from many clubs, and Anfield is now his destination.
He’s had a good grounding at Pittodrie, and it’s good to see Scottish clubs being handsomely rewarded for rearing their own with a big transfer fee.
It makes the time and money invested in their academies and scouting systems totally worthwhile.
Ben Doak has also joined Liverpool from Celtic, and he is another Scottish teenager with a bright future.
We are never certain how players’ careers will work out.
But one thing I do know is that they will be given the best possible chance to succeed at Anfield.
Moving away from home may prove to be a wee bit challenging, but all they need to do is speak up and ask for help.
In Andy Robertson, they have a Scot who will make the lads feel very welcome, and do everything he can to help them settle.
He’ll also be happy to have another couple of Scottish accents about the club, and he will be there for them.
If you are settled off the park, then it can only be beneficial to how you do on the park.
But I should also point out that every player and member of staff at Liverpool will make them feel at home, not just Andy.
There will be plenty of competition for places at the club, and we all know the standard of player is incredibly high.
However, there is no better place to give it your best shot, and to try to fulfil your ambitions and show off your talent.
A good starting point is for them to be themselves. After that, the rest should all fall into place.
