Queen’s Park hail former player Andy Robertson as he reaches Champions League final with Liverpool

QUEEN’S PARK have paid a glowing tribute to former defender Andy Robertson as he reached the Champions League final with current club Liverpool.

In just five years, the Scotland star has gone from playing in the Scottish Third Division to starring in the Champions League.

A tweet from the Spiders, his first senior club, hailed him as a ‘role model for young boys and girls’, adding that his ‘time has certainly come.’.

 

 

 

During his time at the club, he was on an amateur contract so wasn’t getting paid. His full-time job was also at Hampden – answering the phones in the ticket centre for concerts and matches.

Robertson had joined the club having been released by Celtic, making his debut in front of a crowd of less than 400 people at the age of 18.

After the disappointment of rejection by his boyhood heroes, he impressed enough in the 2012/13 season for Dundee United to come calling.

In his one season at Tannadice, he was named the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year award and was also named in the PFA Scotland Team of the Year.

A move down south soon beckoned, with Hull City paying around £2.85m for his services in July 2014.

While Robertson was at the Tigers, they were relegated from the Premier League and subsequently promoted again.

A dream move to Liverpool for around £8m came in July 2017.

After a slow start, he took his chance when handed a starting spot and has now made the left-back position his own.

Last night’s match in Rome, which ended in a 4-2 defeat with Liverpool progressing 7-6 on aggregate, was another milestone for the 24-year-old, who can now look forward to a Champions League final clash with Real Madrid.

Robertson told Liverpoolfc.com: “It’s been an unbelievable journey from the start to now.

“When I signed here, I dreamed of these nights and I took my time to find my feet but I’m here now – what a night tonight and the first leg was unbelievable.

“We’ve got a few big games coming up but now we’ve got to look forward to Kiev and hopefully I can play a big part in it.”
