Alan Shearer says Ian Wright correctly tipped one Liverpool player for stardom years ago

Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson has been named one of the top 10 bargains in Premier League history by Match of the Day.

The Reds ace has been nothing short of a revelation since making the move to Anfield from Hull City four years ago in a reported initial £8million deal.

The 26-year-old’s pace, energy, crossing ability, workrate and professionalism have seen him develop into one of the best left-backs in the world and become a major asset for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

To date, Robertson has made 168 competitive appearances for Liverpool, registering five goals and 35 assists, and winning the Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup.

“He very rarely misses a game – he is relentless and just keeps playing,” Alan Shearer, who named Robertson ninth in his list, told BBC Sport.

 

“I remember a few years ago, Ian Wright saying in the Match of the Day office that he’d seen him play a few times, and he was going to be a top player.

“He had a shocker that day and we gave him a caning. Every time we see him now, he’s like “I told you about him”.”

What else can be said about Robertson that hasn’t been said already? He has been outstanding for Liverpool over the past few years, and for such a bargain price too.

While this season hasn’t quite gone to plan for the Reds, they’ll bounce back without a doubt, and Robertson’s quality will continue to shine.
